Your driveway is a lot of things. It’s your welcome mat to the world, it’s one of the single biggest landscaping elements on your property and it’s an important component of your property’s drainage scheme. As such, the driveway for your Kent home needs to be attractive, durable and stand up to the often punishing environment that can see extreme temperature swings, torrential rain, snow and more.
At Oakleigh Manor, we design and install driveways in Kent that add aesthetic, functional and bottom-line value to your home regardless of its age or style. Whether your home is a stately Georgian Manor, a colourful and charismatic Victorian or an ode to Modern Minimalism we’ll create a driveway that will do it justice rain or shine, 365 days a year.
There was a time when most homeowners didn’t give much thought to their driveway. Its role was considered purely functional, so as long as it kept your tyres from sinking in the muck it was all good. Those days are long gone. With the average home price in the UK nudging up to £400,000, and the average price of detached homes considerably more than that, it’s vital that every component of your property is well-considered and that it works with and complements all the other components. A shabby driveway will negatively affect the home’s kerb appeal, which can reduce its market value by as much as 10%.
At Oakleigh Manor, our team of landscape design professionals take a holistic approach to each and every property. They never treat the driveway like a stand-alone item. Instead, they work closely with each client to arrive at a driveway design that fulfils all functional needs while acting as a landscaping keystone of sorts that enhances the overall look and feel of the property.
If you are tired of looking out the window and seeing a cracked, mouldy concrete slab of a driveway staring back at you, get in touch with the team at Oakleigh. If you’re renovating your home and want to redo all the hardscape elements, contact Oakleigh. Or if you’re just looking for a way to give your Kent property a nice bump in valuation, talk to the team at Oakleigh about a new driveway. We take the humble driveway to a whole new level.
