Far too often, driveways are thought of as solely a practical addition to a property, offering a safe parking spot for one or multiple cars. However, with a little forethought and creative ingenuity, your driveway can become a fantastic focal feature of your home.

Getting creative with your driveway design can transform the exterior of your home, making it look more attractive and really increase your property’s kerb-appeal.

One of the best ways to enhance your driveway design is with block edging – a practical and beautiful addition to any drive.

What Is the Purpose of Driveway Edging?

Block edging for driveways is a key design feature and can be included in all types of driveway. For gravel driveway edging, the edging is essential to keep the loose stones contained, for resin driveways, edging is all about getting the perfect aesthetics!

Driveway edging has multiple functions, depending on the type of driveway that you have. Some of the main practical and aesthetic purposes of edging, include:

• Establishing a border between the drive and garden
• Keeping loose-fill driveways contained
• Preventing certain driveway materials, like concrete, from cracking
• Enhancing the look of the driveway
• Helping with drainage
• Keeping soil and vegetation separated
• Separating the driveway and garden with a ‘step up’ or ‘step down’ design
