We are now almost 20 years in with the first [Grassrings] installation and it is proof that it works really well with the gravel infill too. There is excellent gravel stability - nothing moves, which is fantastic. We have specified the product to numerous clients and given our own use as a reference.

This driveway has been absolutely brilliant. [Gravelrings] was the best solution.It serves all the purposes we need and even in the winter when the weather is bad, it means cars can get in and out with no problem. I would recommend this system to anybody.

We are very pleased with the results. Previously we have had issues with gravel moving on the drive and with the slope into the drive, where we have had gravel ‘travelling’ down to the pavement continuously. With your product down all those issues have disappeared. We now have a much firmer driveway and, so far, no raking of gravel required. The new driveway is low maintenance with excellent rigidity and quality. Great product.

We were extremely impressed by this product. [The Gravelrings] were of good quality and also fitted together well, thus saving valuable labour costs. Both the client and myself were very happy with the finished driveway.

“We are very pleased that we opted for Gravelrings when relaying our gravel drive. They added very little to the installation time and well worth the additional cost as the difference to previously is so stark. No more ruts and grooves! The driveway looks tidy and is much quieter to travel across, plus we get hardly any stones coming into the house now.”

We would like to say how pleased we are with your Gravelrings product. Quick to install and easy to cut on site, it has provided a firm base for 20t lorries to drive over without sinking or moving the 10mm gravel it retains. We used it on a large sloped area and after nearly nine months of use, the gravel has remained in place, unlike the flat section of the drive (laid without Gravelrings), where it has to be swept back into place regularly. Having used inferior products in the past, the moulded-in mesh base means that the Gravelrings do not rise up, as the aggregate cannot be forced up by the action of tyres pushing the gravel downwards. We will definitely be using your product again in the future for a permeable driveway.

I first used the Beauxfort Gravelrings system on a large, gently sloping drive. I found it easy to lay, they cut effortlessly and installation was fast. Once the gravel was spread, the surface was extremely firm. I am very impressed with all aspects of the product and I don’t hesitate to recommend them to my clients.
