We professionally install driveways in Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Pontefract and Harrogate.
It is important to think about budgets at the start of your search for a new driveway before you look for a contractor. It is good to know your limits and also the most expensive driveway is not always the best. The design of the driveway plays a huge part and can make a modestly priced driveway look a million dollars.
Another good tip is to go and look in your local area and at the houses similar to yours and see if you could find inspiration from them. This will give you immediate ideas of the type of driveway you are looking for.
So, with the design and budget in mind you are well prepared to have a professional contractor look at your work and you have in mind the parameters in which you want to work.

What’s The Best Driveway For You?
You really need to think about the amount of space, the condition of the land and any slope on your property as this can impact what work can be done. There are loads of different choices; starting from gravel, moving up to block paving or beamish cobbles and there’s the new imprinted concrete. All of these have implications on budget and the time taken. Honestly, you need to think about what you want and need – if it is just somewhere to pop the car – gravel will be sufficient for your needs or if you really want to wow your neighbours we can design a fantastic bespoke installation.
Whatever you choose here at Paving and Driveways Leeds we will work with you and recommend a unique design that will fit with your lifestyle and budget.
Underneath We Have Shown The Sort Of Driveway You Can Expect Going From The Lower End Of The Price Range To The Highest
The Gravel Driveway Option
The gravelled option is at the start of the price range but as you can see can still be very pleasing on the eye. You can research the different sorts of gravel yourself and remember you will more than likely need a driveway edging to retain the gravel.
The Block Paving Option
This is the most popular choice of the three main options. As you can see the blocks can create a great design and we provide a clean and professional finish to the job. Block Paving your driveway provides a fantastic balance between quality and affordability.
The Beamish Cobble Option
The Beamish Cobble is the Ferrari of cobble stones and is manufactured in The North of England by Thomas Armstrong. You can choose from a number of different colours and we can offer you a beautiful design and installation to compliment these authentic and prestigious cobble stones.
What Can I Expect Cost Wise?
Underneath you will see a quick list as to what we feel is going to be the cheapest to the dearest
Here I have listed the types of driveways that we install and in order of price; Starting with the most budget friendly on a sliding scale to the most expensive
- Concrete (standard)
- Gravel and Flags Mixed
- Gravel and Blocks
- Block Paving
- Resin bonded aggregates
- Cobble Paving
- Stamped Imprinted concrete
It can be a little tricky to give a standard price for the above options without seeing the area as lots of different factors are involved. As you can imagine drainage, slope, levelling, etc. All of this is unforeseen until the area is surveyed by one of our professional team.But, to give an idea of prices so that you can really consider what sort of driveway you might like most customers pay between £45 and £70 per m2 on a sliding scale for the options we detailed above. This is for the full job, digging out, installing, waste removal, etc…
We hope that we can give you a little food for thought and that you can really get your head around your budget and the design. If you need any further assistance please, GIVE US A CALL
With Driveway Design In Mind, What Do I Need To Think About?
There are a few things that will impact on the design of your driveway, certain things that are unavoidable and essential and will be incorporated in the design by a professional Driveway company. Driveway edging and drainage on your driveway. These two points are essential so that your driveway will stand the test of time and look beautiful and be functional for years to come.
The Drainage On Your Driveway
Where will the water go? This is the most important technical question our designers have to answer. Any professional company worth their salt will have this at the forefront of their mind when designing your driveway.
Why is it so important? First of all we are required by law (since 2008) to install the correct drainage systems and for you to avoid planning permission. Also, it takes a great level of skill and knowledge to understand drainage systems and to incorporate them into a design. Here at Paving and Driveways Leeds we will always match up the correct drainage system to the design installation – We try not to compromise on design but the drainage is so important – We normally find a way!
The Edging On Your Driveway
The edging on your driveway can be the make or break of it. The edging retains the driveway and provides strength to the groundwork’s and blocks it can seriously impact the aesthetics of the driveway. We use a boot kerb for partitioning off gardens and they come n a range of colours allowing you to match with the blocks on the drive, giving you extra options for the look and feel of your driveway.
