How to create a low maintenance gravel driveway

A gravel driveway is a distinguished and eye-catching landscaping choice that elevates the approach and outdoor areas of a property. In the past, having one meant committing a lot of time and money to maintenance, but now, thanks to a clever piece of design innovation, it’s possible to have a low maintenance gravel driveway.

The problems of old-style gravel driveways

Traditionally, gravel driveways kept owners busy. One of the most common and exhausting problems of old-style gravel driveways is stone migration. Gravel gets everywhere – in flower beds, on the grass, in the house and on the road.

At the same time, old-style gravel driveways suffer from regular rutting and pitting, and general thinning out. And, of course, there is the constant battle against weeds. Keeping traditional gravel driveways looking smart involves a great deal of work.

But now there is a way to have a statement gravel driveway, and the all-important crunch factor, without the back-breaking and wallet-draining hassle of constant maintenance.

How to achieve a low-maintenance gravel driveway

The answer is the innovative Gravelrings grid system from Beauxfort. Install this easy-to-fit high-quality gravel retention system and you can have a gravel driveway that requires only minimal maintenance. That’s less time and money spent on laborious tasks.

The Gravelrings gravel retention system combats gravel shift, rutting, pitting, thinning out and weeds. It either gets rid of these problems completely or reduces them dramatically. Available in black and white to blend with the choice of gravel, the system also remains out of sight, maintaining the elegance of your gravel driveway.

How an innovative design helps Gravelrings combat weeds

Naturally, when it comes to weeds, it is almost impossible to stop them appearing completely. Weeds are very difficult to eliminate entirely and require very little encouragement to grow and regrow. Furthermore, birds will always drop seeds on gardens and reintroduce weeds.

Nevertheless, reducing the number of weeds makes them much easier to manage. The integral mesh base of the Gravelrings system prevents silt build-up, which makes it more difficult for weeds to grow.

An end to constant driveway maintenance

A gravel driveway that doesn’t require constant maintenance is possible. Your property can have this statement approach without the burden of constant sweeping, refilling and repairing. All you need is the Gravelrings gravel retention system.
