By Oakleigh Manor
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.
When it comes to return on investment for home improvement projects, a new driveway comes very near the top of the list. In addition to the excellent ROI, you can also look forward to a significantly more appealing property exterior after having a new driveway installed, especially if you have the work performed by our team of experts. Driveway design in Kent is something we have a great deal of experience with, having completed numerous residential and commercial driveway projects here in recent years. As a Kent based company, we are able to offer a fast, attentive and efficient service to both domestic and commercial customers across the county.
With our turnkey service, having a new driveway installed is a much easier process than you might have imagined. You only have one team to deal with from start to finish and one point of contact. There is no room for misunderstandings or disagreements between your design and construction team because they are one and the same when you hire Oakleigh Manor. All you need to do is to tell us exactly how you would like your new driveway to look and what you wish to use it for. We can then take care of all the details, from the initial design and specification, through to the installation and tidying up afterwards.
If you would like to take advantage of our driveway design service, just call or email us now and we will tell you everything you need to know about what we do and how we work. Once we know what type of driveway you want, we can prepare a full quotation for your consideration and, assuming that you are happy with all of the details, we can then arrange for the installation work to be carried out at a time of your choosing. Whether you are interested in a gravel, granite, asphalt or block paving driveway, you can rely on the team at Oakleigh Manor to do a first-class job at a reasonable price.
