like any landscaping project prices are relative to what you can afford.Many people have never had their driveway replaced so the sums involved can be a eye opener.
Yes buying a diy kit for small areas and pathways can be purchased inexpensively unfortunately it is not a off the shelf item because of the choice of gravels availible.Many companies on the internet now sell DIY KITS.(We can sell resin gravel kits to diyers or landscape contractors for small areas)

For larger areas you really do need to employ a contractor,the reasons behind this statement are
they will have the specialist machinery needed to mix larger quantities of material,
experience to install large areas as most contractors lay this type of surfacing evryday.
Resin surfacing is a cold lay product which cures at a rate dependant on the ground temperature.
and will normally guarantee their workmanship for a number of years.

Senario Aif you have a existing concrete or tarmac surface and need to replace it with blocks or imprinted concrete,you will have to pay to have it taken up and removed to a responsible waste disposal site,before installing your new surface,normally the cost is between £80.00-£100.00 per m2,the cost to supply and install resin surfacing is between £50.00-£60.00 per m2.A typical tarmac driveway measuring 30m2 can be overlaid with decorative bound gravel for £1500.00

Senario B
If you have to take up garden areas to install blocks or imprinted concrete the cost will be £80.00- £100.00 per m2.
whilst the resin surfacing contractor will have to dig out,install a tarmac or concrete base,before installing there decorative surfacing,costing between £90.00-£110.00 per m2.

Households who have a existing but tired looking driveway ,who are looking for a long lasting,hardwearing decorative surface can do no worse than contracting your resin driveway specialist.

above is a professionally shot video of a typical installation of a resin bound driveway completed within the day in north leeds
