Factors to consider when building driveways at Ralston homes and businesses

So, you have decided that the driveway needs a facelift… and now, you have a whole heap of decisions to make! What will you include?

Is your current driveway doing a great job, to the best of its ability?

Before you bring in the diggers, think for a moment about your current driveway, if you have one. If not, and you are creating a new one, then you still need to consider these questions…

  • Is it big enough? – in some cases, driveways at Ralston properties are restricted by the amount of available land and this can mean that your drive is never big enough for what you want but, if you are blessed with a larger garden, are you prepared to take over more of it to make a larger drive?
  • Other than car parking, what else is it used for? – some people natural assume that this is all a driveway does, provide an effective parking lot for their cars. But, for some customers, the driveway forms a large portion of their garden and thus, it will be a multi-functional space.
  • What accessories need adding? – always worth considering earlier in the process than you think because there is nothing worse that laying the last brick in the drive, for the customer to ask for lights to be added… there are some key accessories that you will need to decide whether you are adding to your plush new driveway at the start of the process (it’ll save time, money and frustration)
  • What about the boundary? – the whole idea of driveways at Ralston properties is that they add usable, functional space… and this is not always done well if there is no clear boundary marked. The addition of gates and fencing makes your drive more secure, eminently more user and far safer for children and pets.
  • How do you want it to look? – possibly the biggest question of all and there are only 2 restraints, in essence:
    • Your budget – if money is no object, then you have a vast array of traditional and modern materials from which to choose; from individual laid cobbles to brightly coloured resins, there is nothing holding you back!
    • And your imagination – being able to ‘visual’ the finished product can be tough and so we suggest taking time over the final, top layer material. You will need to envisage what it will look next to your property; think complimentary rather than garish, and working against it.

Driveways at Ralston properties are functional, fun and secure – why not plan yours today?
