I wish to convert my front garden to parking and would like to know which type of driveway you would recommend for my situation. The area is currently lawn and approximately 5m x 6m in size with a curved perimeter. It also slopes towards the house with a drop of around 0.7m. I am guessing that the cheapest and easiest option is to go for a gravel area, but would consider block paving if it is possible and the cost was not prohibitively higher. Are there any issues regarding the slope of the garden that I need to factor in when deciding which type of drive to choose? I assume that drainage will be an issue for block paving, but will I need to address this for a gravel drive?
Hope you can help.
