Resin Driveway & Resin Bound Driveway
Our resin-bound driveway installation service is the perfect solution for your property. Our team of experts is highly skilled in all aspects of resin-bound installation, ensuring a finish that will look great and last for years to come. With a range of colours and patterns to choose from, you can be sure that there will be one that perfectly complements your home or business premises.
The process we use for our resin driveways ensures the best possible results. We first prepare the ground surface with our dust-free diamond grinding system which also creates an even sub-base layer for maximum durability. Once this foundation has been created, we apply multiple layers of our proprietary resin, giving it a strong bond with the base material beneath. This makes our finished product resistant to weeds, harsh weather conditions, and UV light.
Once the installation is complete, you can enjoy a beautiful and low-maintenance driveway that will last for years. Our resin-bound driveways are designed to be permeable, so water can drain easily into the underlying soil, eliminating puddles and preventing flooding. We also add an anti-slip coating as part of the installation process, giving you extra peace of mind when driving or walking on your new driveway.
We offer free site surveys and estimates to ensure we give you the highest quality product at competitive prices. So if you’re looking for a driveway solution that is not only attractive but also durable and long-lasting, our resin-bound driveway installation service could be the perfect choice for you.

Driveway Kerbstones, Steps, and Edgings
Kerbstones, steps, and edgings are essential components of any driveway. They serve as both a decorative and functional feature of the overall design. Kerbstones provide structure and support for driveways installed on sloping terrain or in areas with erosion issues. Steps add a unique aesthetic appeal and offer an easy way to transition from one level of the driveway to another. Edgings help define the boundaries of a driveway and also serve as an elegant way to add visual interest. When considering driveway design, it is important to ensure that kerbstones, steps, and edgings are chosen with care in order to enhance the overall look of your property. By selecting quality materials that are well-suited to the surrounding environment, you can create a driveway that is both visually appealing and highly functional.
In addition to design considerations, kerbstones, steps, and edgings require regular maintenance to keep them in good condition. It is important to check for any signs of wear or damage that may be present on these features and address them promptly. Doing so will help prevent further deterioration and ensure that your driveway remains attractive for years to come.

Proper driveway drainage is critical for preventing damage to your home and landscape. Without proper drainage, water will pool in the driveway or run off into other areas of your yard, causing erosion and flooding. Fortunately, there are several solutions available that can help you keep your driveway properly drained.
One solution is to create a swale along the edge of the driveway where runoff can be redirected away from the house and towards a chosen location such as a dry well or rain garden. This should be done by sloping the soil at an angle away from the house so that it directs water in that direction. You may also want to consider adding French drains or catch basins along the sides of your driveway to collect water and direct it away from the house.
If you're looking for a more permanent solution, you can install pavement that has been designed to channel water away from the driveway and direct it into a catch basin or dry well. There are also options available such as permeable pavers or concrete pavers that allow water to seep through them, enabling it to be absorbed into the ground instead of running off.
Finally, adding vegetation around your driveway can help absorb runoff and reduce erosion. Planting shrubs or trees along the edges of the driveway will not only add visual appeal but also help with drainage by absorbing the rainfall and reducing run-off.
No matter which option you choose, proper drainage is essential for preventing damage and flooding in your driveway. With a few simple steps, you can ensure that your driveway is properly drained and protected from water damage.
Driveway Sub-base and foundations
The driveway sub-base and foundations are essential components for creating a stable and durable surface. The most common material used for the base is type-1 material, which is a crushed aggregate mixture of rock fragments. This material provides excellent drainage and compaction to keep the surface level and long-lasting. It also helps bind together any loose soil and prevents subsidence over time. The depth of the sub-base depends on the purpose of the driveway – it should be thicker if heavier loads will be driven over it (such as cars). The material should also be evenly spread out so that there are no weak spots or dips in the base. Once this layer has been laid down, a suitable foundation can then be added on top to provide additional support and stability. This could be a concrete slab or asphalt pavement, depending on the desired look of the driveway. Proper groundwork is essential for any driveway that needs to withstand heavy traffic and inclement weather over time. Utilising type-1 material as part of the sub-base can ensure long-lasting results, that is why Premium Landscaping use it for all our driveway bases.
Driveway Maintenance - How To Take Care of Your New Driveway
If you invest in a brand-new driveway, you want to make sure that it remains in good condition for years to come. Regular maintenance is essential to keep your driveway looking great and working well. Here are some tips for caring for your new driveway:
1. Seal the Driveway - Whether you have a Tarmac, block paving or concrete drive, sealing it can help protect it from any rain, snow, or other harsh weather conditions. Sealing will also help reduce cracking and fading as time passes. Make sure to use sealant specifically designed for driveways and that’s appropriate for the climate, so check with your local home improvement store or do some research online before purchasing anything.
2. Clean It Regularly - Get into the habit of cleaning your driveway regularly to remove any dirt, debris, or mud that may have been collected. Avoid using harsh chemicals on your driveway as they can cause damage and discolouration.
3. Remove Stains Quickly - If you notice any oil or grease stains, treat them immediately with a suitable cleaner to prevent them from setting into the material. Follow instructions provided by the manufacturer when using these products.
4. Repair Damage Promptly - If you spot any cracks or other damages in your driveway, repair it right away so it doesn’t worsen over time. You can buy fillers for Tarmac and concrete driveways at home improvement stores which will help patch up small holes and cracks easily without having to replace large areas of your driveway.
These are just a few tips for taking care of your new driveway. With proper maintenance, you can ensure that it lasts for years to come and looks great while doing so. If you ever have any questions or need help with repairs, consult a professional to provide the best service possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Patios
What is the most maintenance free driveway?
The most maintenance-free driveway is one made of Tarmac. These driveways are known for their durability and provide a smooth, even surface. As with any driveway material, regular inspections are recommended to ensure there are no cracks or areas of damage that need attention. To maximise the life of a Tarmac driveway, it is important to seal coat it every three to five years and patch any cracks or potholes as they occur. In addition, snow removal and regular sweeping can help extend the life of an asphalt driveway. On average, a Tarmac driveway typically lasts 15-20 years with proper maintenance.
Concrete driveways require less maintenance than asphalt driveways but may be more prone to cracking. To minimise cracking, concrete driveways should be sealed every two to three years and cracks filled as soon as they appear. With proper maintenance, a concrete driveway can last up to 30 years.
Block Paving driveways require even less maintenance than other driveways but may require more frequent repairs due to the nature of their design. Block Paving is composed of individual stones that can shift over time, requiring re-levelling and occasional replacement. With proper maintenance, a block paved driveway can last up to 40 years. Overall, Tarmac driveways require the least amount of maintenance but all types of driveways will benefit from regular inspections and repairs as needed. With the right care and attention, any driveway can last many years and provide a beautiful entrance to your home. So no matter which material you choose, be sure to give it the care it needs to keep your driveway looking its best.
What is the best type of driveway?
The best type of driveway depends on many factors, including budget, climate, and the space available. In general, gravel driveways are the least expensive to install, but they require frequent maintenance such as grading and weed control. Paved driveways can be made from block paving, resin bound, Tarmac or concrete and may require more upfront investment, but will typically last longer with less upkeep. In climates with cold winters, asphalt may be a better choice since it is less prone to cracking due to freezing temperatures. For homeowners with large areas that require paving, concrete can be more affordable and can provide a longer-lasting driveway than Tarmac. Ultimately, the best type of driveway for you will depend on your individual budget, needs and preferences. As always, it is best to consult with our professionals before making a final decision.
What type of driveway adds most value?
When it comes to choosing a drive that adds the most value, the material used is key. Block paving and Resin Bound driveways, for example, are very durable and can last for decades if well cared for. Concrete drives are also popular due to their cost-effectiveness and ease of maintenance. Tarmac/Asphalt is another great option that provides an attractive look while being able to withstand harsh weather conditions.
When considering the material used for your driveway, it’s important to look at both the cost and longevity of the material in order to determine which one offers the most value. Additionally, potential home buyers often prefer driveways with a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, so choosing materials such as block paving, Resin or asphalt that are visually attractive is important when looking to increase the value of a home.
Proper installation is also essential in order to ensure that the driveway lasts for years and adds maximum value to the property. Hiring our professionals at Premium Landscaping for the job can help you get quality workmanship and long-lasting results. Ultimately, choosing a driveway material that balances cost, longevity, and attractiveness is the best way to get the most value for your money. With careful consideration of all these factors, you can successfully increase the value of your home with a driveway that meets your requirements.
Do you need permission from the council to build a driveway?
Building a new driveway on your property usually requires permission from the local council. This is because the works might affect public access, parking, and transport use in the area. Upgrading and resurfacing an existing driveway is usually fine
The application process for building a driveway depends on what type of materials you will be using and how much space it takes up. You may need to apply for planning permission if you're making major changes to your house or land. It's important to check with your local council about specific requirements for driveways in your area as rules can vary across different councils.
In some cases, you may need to submit drawings or plans of the proposed driveway along with your application form. This should include details such as measurements and types of material used. You may also need to provide information about the dimensions and shape of the driveway, as well as its location in relation to neighbouring properties.
The council may also require you to pay a fee for processing your application. This can vary from council to council so it's best to check with them before submitting your application. Once you have submitted your application, the council will make a decision on whether or not they approve your plans.
If approved, the local authority should provide you with written permission to build the driveway. It is important that you follow any guidelines provided by the council while constructing your new driveway in order to avoid delays or legal issues down the line.
Remember, always check with your local council regarding regulations for building driveways in your area before beginning any work. Doing so can save you time and money in the long run.
You should also consider consulting with a qualified professional to ensure that your proposed plans comply with all relevant regulations. Failure to do so could lead to costly fines or other legal implications down the line. It's best to be safe than sorry when it comes to building driveways!
