Ask a tradesman


residential drive needed. whats the "best" budget option?

On a budget (who isn't), but need a durable, low maintenance and cheap (value for money) option/solution to needing a drive.

I ask simply from an economic point of view (current prices of various materials & options etc).

Cheers, Jem.

The cheapest type of drive you will get is minimum 150mm of well compacted hardcore, over terrain weed control fabric.
Well compacted, to tidy it up a good layer of topping stones of your choice.

I'm not sure if that's the cheapest option Brian (B J D).......

Someone driving past in a flatbed who just happens to have a bit of tarmac left over from another job maybe? ;)
