Without driveways, we would have to park our vehicles in the streets outside of places we intend to visit – including our own homes if we are fortunate enough to have a house and lot. Likewise, all delivery (or collection) vehicles would not be able to get close to the built up area. Obviously, any building away from the approach road needs its own driveway; but, because this is so obvious, we often tend to take driveways for granted and assume that they never require any maintenance (other than sweeping up fall leaves or clearing winter snows).
Which Type Of Driveway Is Best?
Those of us with driveways leading up to our homes are probably aware of the materials used for its original installation (probably by someone else who previously owned the place) – we can’t help but notice if it is bare earth or rock; or covered with asphalt; concrete or loose pebbles; but, we simply accept our driveway on an “as is” basis and do not think overmuch about whether or not it was laid in the most suitable manner. Unless we like driving through potholes, puddles and mud; some sort of driveway surface is essential and different types of driveway will have different costs for preparation and construction; but, do we choose the type on initial cost alone; or, on a basis of aesthetic appearance (blending in with its surroundings); or, do we use the more practical approach of – how well will it perform its function; for how long and with what maintenance costs?
Loose pebbles may look great on the sweeping driveway through the estate surrounding a mansion but they require a lot of maintenance effort to keep the stones correctly placed after vehicles have passed through. This type might well be initially lower in cost but it is not really all that popular; most homeowners will opt for either asphalt or concrete. Each has its pros and cons; so, selection is probably dependent upon individual circumstances.
