How do I Future-Proof my Driveway?

Read some of our advice and information below to help you Future-Proof your project.


Your driveway plays a large part in the look of the exterior of your home. Imagine your house without it….not too flash!

There are numerous products on the market from traditional concrete to coloured concrete to pavers and exposed aggregate. Talk to your architect or designer about which product would best fit with the style of your home.

Before you lay a new driveway remember to check pipes and cabling underneath. For renovations now is the time to ensure any old pipes are replaced to save digging up the driveway again in future. Also ensure you have any wiring for gates sorted out before laying your driveway as you may need this to go underneath.
