Not sure if I'm on the correct forum but - !!

I have a large (not sure how big but you can park 5/6 cars on it!) gravel drive which is in dire need of replacement.

The previous owners did it very badly and there is hardly any gravel left. I don't know whether to go for tarmac/concrete or go back to gravel done properly.

Block paving will be far too expensive I think but was wondering about the screen printed or is it resin? drives.

I can't seem to find any info which would help me choose the best option.

well laid tarmac, framed in solid Staffy blue brick soldiers laid flat, looks great.

block pavimng depends on the type you choose, but neednt be much more expensive than the other options.

Im not a fan of the printed concrete, a lot of them ive seen end up with cracks in them due to movement in the concrete.
