Concrete is a popular paving material for creating ‘solid-surface’ driveways, and is generally used to provide a sloped ‘cover’ for efficient water run-off. Concrete surfaces are low-maintenance, as well as cost-effective. So if you’re after a low-maintenance driveway with endless styling options and modern functionality, concrete pavers is just what you’re after. Contact Zones to get your driveway started.
Asphalt is similar to concrete in that they’re both made with stones and sand and it is equally popular. The binding cement that locks these materials together however, is different. Asphalt has a softer look and offers high performance at about half the cost. It is less prone to cracking compared to other paving materials. Don’t know what driveway to choose?

Tracey and Glen have been amazing. We're still at the planning stage and gulping with the cost but it is bringing us to reality and what's important.
Gravel driveways are one of the most affordable paving options. They’re durable and easy to install and there’s no need to seal them. Gravel driveways are prone to stones scattering and do require ongoing maintenance. Call the Zones experts to find out more.
A porous resin-bound driveway deals with driveway run-off in an environmentally benign way. It’s also durable and can sustain heavy weights. Resin-bound driveways filter surface water back into the soil before it enters the waterways, so they do not puddle. They’re often more costly than traditional , and should be installed by approved specialists. For more information contact Zones.
Classic brick driveways can withstand modern day usage giving your home an ‘old world’ charm. They are, however, more prone to cracking compared to cobblestone. Cobblestone pavers are typically more tough, stain resistant and require very little maintenance. When choosing brick or cobblestone, remember to match it with the colour of your home. Contact Zones for more info.
A pebble driveway is one of the most affordable solutions. It is permeable and has the great advantage of looking natural. However, you might need to consider pebble scattering and hence the need for raking. Exposed aggregate is concrete that has had the top layer washed off to leave the surface layer of aggregate exposed. This creates a unique, easy to maintain, non-slip driveway. To get your new driveway underway, contact a Zones expert.
An elegant alternative to traditional concrete, 20mm porcelain stoneware pavers are slowly but surely coming of age since they emerged some years ago. Slip-resistant, extra-durable, easy to install, maintain and it is extremely versatile. The 20mm pavers are not only great for driveways but for creating a seamless indoor-outdoor flow.
