Q: What is golden flint gravel?
Golden flint gravel is a natural mix of rich gold, tan and cream angular chippings. This decorative aggregate is perfect for driveways, footpaths and other landscaping needs. Options include the 20kg bags as well as the larger bulk bags.
Q: What is the best membrane to use under golden flint gravel?
Having a strong, non-woven geotextile membrane in place will keep the golden flint gravel in place and will stop it from spilling onto the road. These geotextiles are designed to allow water through, whilst separating and stabilising the aggregate within. It also makes golden flint gravel paths and soil easier to walk or drive on.
Also, because of the golden flint gravels angular design - they work really well with our driveway grids (porous pavers), PP40 is highly reccomended.
Q: What's the best size golden flint gravel for a driveway?
Ideally you should use 20mm golden flint gravel for your driveway as the smaller sized 10mm may get stuck in your tyre treads. The advantage of using golden flint gravel for your driveway is that it will require very little maintenance ensuring you lay a fabric membrane down before laying your golden flint gravel.
Q: Why is my golden flint gravel very dusty and opaque?
Thoroughly washing the golden flint gravel once you've laid it will help you achieve the best colour and finish in your garden by rinsing any dust or fines to the bottom of the surface.
Q: How can you evenly distribute the golden flint gravel?
We would reccomend using a standard garden rake to evenly distribute the gravel on the ground.
