A popular driveway surface not just for Buildadrive.com but all across Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. An affordable, long-lasting driveway surface choice in comparison to some other options on the market. One of the downside of gravel driveways is that may need some additional maintenance during the colder, winter months of the year. It’s important to keep on top of this in order to keep your driveway as safe as possible and looking as good as it possibly can, ensuring it lasts for many years to come.
Some simple steps to maintain your gravel driveway this winter!
- Rake your gravel, it’s important that this is done regular as this will keep your gravel driveway level and at the same time removing unwanted debris such as twigs, leaves and other garden waste.
- Keep an eye on drainage, any signs then investigate. You wouldn’t want after a heavy downpour to notice a flooded area or pooling. This would indicate a drainage issue. It can easily be fixed by filling in low points. A top tip is keeping your gravel driveway level above the surrounding area, this will prevent run off from other areas of the garden onto the driveway itself.
- Top up your gravel if needed, adding a fresh layer of gravel in winter can keep the driveway at the correct depth throughout the surface area.
