Paving North East wide for driveways and patios includes the use of gravel and aggregates as well as asphalt. 'Aggregate' describes course lumpy materials used by construction contractors and landscaping contractors, including sand, gravel, and crushed stones. Gravel produces a cheap, hardwearing, low maintenance, and easy to repair parking or patio surface, which is quickly installed in hours. Gravel that is used to surface driveways and patios is referred to as decorative gravel, and can be made from any type of stone. They also vary in size from 2mm to 60mm. Smooth, rounded gravels come from sea beds or rivers while angular gravels are quarried and crushed stone. Reviews of commercial suppliers show driveway or patio decorative gravels are sold graded to a single size or a size range, and a description is given. Crushed stone is used for landscaping improvements to match the driveway or patio to its surroundings. It is as good as gravel and can be more decorative, though slightly more expensive. Recently recycled alternatives for contractors have developed, such as tumbled glass (with no sharp edges). This is currently more commonly used as decorative aggregate in garden landscaping rather than for block paving North East based.
