The brief here was to create a driveway with the wow factor. And, when it comes to driveway paving, nothing else achieves this quite like porcelain.

Designed specifically for driveways, Marshalls Symphony Plus Porcelain was the natural choice. With the warm grey tones of the paving complimenting the white render on the front of the property.

To add interest, the driveway perimeter was framed with granite sett edging – working in perfect harmony with the main driveway paving. Lighting was inset into the setts for night-time impact.

Tegula kerbs form sweeping curved steps and a raised bed to the front of the property. They also served as a practical, yet attractive solution to retain a raised flower bed between the neighbour’s property.

To reduce maintenance, Scottish Pebbles were added to the soft landscaped areas.

New drainage was carefully considered to prevent flooding. To minimise the visual impact of a driveway drain, we utilised the innovative and high-performance Marshalls Driveline Drain. This has a more attractive appearance than standard plastic or steel drain covers and compliments the paving.

The end result is an impressive driveway worthy of any property.
