Why is Granite better than Gravel?

If you are unsure of what exactly red granite is, it is one of the most durable and commonly used materials for a range of different pathways and is highly regarded as one of the most aesthetically pleasing aggregates. It looks great when dry and even better when making it perfect for the usually wet climate here in the UK! Granite requires no maintenance and is a great replacement for gravel or other aggregate. 

Whilst having a similar appearance, red gravel lacks the durability and quality that lanark red Granite has. Gravel is often used as a way to imitate the look of granite but you will find the quality will start to decline over time. If you are looking for the high quality wow factor then Red Granite is the choice for you!

What is the right amount of gravel for my driveway?

By using our gravel calculator, it’s easy to find the correct amount of granite or gravel you need for your driveway. It is merely a matter of knowing how long and wide the driveway needs to be, along with what depth of gravel is needed.
As a general rule of thumb, uncompacted Cloburn granite weighs approximately 1.4 tonnes per cubic meter. A driveway should be at least 50mm deep, so one ton would cover approximately 14 square meters.
