What is a Sandstone Driveway?

A sandstone driveway is a paved area leading to your home’s entrance made from sandstone slabs or blocks. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock known for its natural beauty and strength. When used for driveways, it adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your property. Sandstone driveways come in various colours and patterns, making them a versatile choice for any architectural style.

How do you install a sandstone driveway?

Creating a sandstone driveway requires professional expertise and meticulous planning. Here’s how we install sandstone driveways in a few simple steps…


Site Preparation

Our driveway specialists will visit your property to assess the terrain, ensuring proper drainage and a solid foundation.



We excavate the area to the desired depth, removing any debris and ensuring a level base ready for your sandstone sub-base installation.


Sub-Base Installation

The Benefits of Sandstone Driveways

Sandstone driveways offer numerous advantages that make them a popular choice among homeowners:

Timeless Beauty

Sandstone’s natural variations in colour and texture create a unique and visually appealing driveway. Whether you prefer warm, earthy tones or cooler, more subtle shades, sandstone driveways effortlessly blend with any architectural style, adding an inviting and sophisticated allure to your home’s entrance.


Sandstone is a robust material that can withstand heavy traffic and harsh weather conditions, ensuring your driveway looks stunning for years. It can withstand the weight of vehicles and the constant comings and goings of daily life without showing signs of wear and tear.

Low Maintenance

Sandstone driveways require minimal maintenance, making them a hassle-free option. Thanks to their smooth surface and minimal joints, they accumulate less dirt and debris, reducing the need for frequent cleaning. Occasional sweeping and a gentle hose-down are usually all that’s required to keep your driveway looking pristine.

Increased Property Value

The kerb appeal added by a sandstone driveway can boost your property’s value. Prospective buyers are often willing to pay a premium for a home with such a visually striking and durable feature. Whether you’re considering selling your property in the future or simply looking to enhance its overall value, a sandstone driveway is a wise choice.

Environmentally Friendly

Sandstone is a sustainable choice, as it is a natural material that does not harm the environment during production. Unlike synthetic materials, sandstone production doesn’t involve harmful chemicals or pollutants, ensuring a small environmental footprint. By choosing sandstone, you are making a sustainable choice.
