When you make purchases in everyday life are you keen to buy local products?

Ever wondered if any landscaping materials are sourced in your area?

If you’re currently planning to design, re-landscape or rejuvenate an exterior space without spending a small fortune then you can choose from several local gravel products.pebbles

Gravel suppliers in and around Berkshire, like Rivar Sand and Gravel in Newbury, Tadley and Windlesham will answer in the affirmative if you ask “are there gravel supplies near me?” They are proud to stock an excellent range of characterful, traditional and enchanting local gravels that will immediately increase appeal, offer long lasting functionality and are a wise investment.

Use gravel for:

  • Paths.
  • Driveways.
  • Mulching – pots and borders.
  • Edging.
  • As a feature.
  • To compliment features.
  • Around ponds.
  • Around drainage pipes and over manhole covers.

Is it simple to install and maintain?

Think of gravel as a forgiving friend.

Not everyone is a budding Monty Don or Capability Brown and when your outdoor space needs some work, it’s best not to fall in to the trap of designing a concept or using materials that will lead to you tearing your hair out in frustration.

If you aren’t a keen landscaper or you’re new to landscaping and perhaps lacking in confidence then you’ll be delighted to learn that laying gravel is arguably the easiest option and it boasts low maintenance levels.

By installing weed matting between the soil and the gravel or taking advantage of a framework product like Marropave you’ll reduce maintenance to a tiny amount.  

Local gravel products offer efficient drainage and a secure foothold in winter months, something that sheer and impermeable surfaces like paving and asphalt can’t claim to do.  You won’t see puddles, you’ll see magnificent landscaping with gravel.
