Is it a good idea to put decorative pebble in the driveway?
We have a beautiful pebble patio and pool deck surface. In the front we have an old stamped design (the back used to have it also but we replaced it about six yrs ago with the pebble)
I am getting prices on putting the pebble in the front but my husband is afraid of cracking and loosening because of heavy cars rolling over it. This is happening on the pool deck just sitting there. We have it repaired and recoated every two or three years.
I also have some paving companies ready to give me a quote for pavers. I know those are extremely expensive.
Please advise. Thank you.
It sounds like you have a pebbles in a resin or epoxy put over concrete. I don't think it would hold up well as a driveway surface. Just like what you are saying about the surface breaking down around the pool with only foot traffic, cars will be much harder on it. Pavers would be more expensive, but should last indefinitely. Could you do a parking pad in front of the house in pavers and the rest of the driveway in another less expensive surface like concrete or gravel?
Good luck with your project and thinks for your submission.
