Building prices for driveway

Driveways can be made of tarmac, paving slabs, brick (which can be herring bone style or a regular pattern), concrete or gravel. How much each of them costs depends largely on how much work you are willing to do on the driveway yourself. A gravel driveway can look nice and cost little in materials (<£100, of course depending on size) but still requires and awful lot of hard work to make. For all of the methods the first step will be to dig out the ground where the driveway will go. Then a layer hardcore can be compacted down and finally the top surface applied. The compaction step is important as cars are heavy and will cause subsidence in the sturdiest looking driveway.
