    "Don't go for the cheapest quote. Make sure everything is specified in the quote. You want a minimum of 200mm depth of stone for a driveway.
    Use recycled stone under the drive to reduce costs plus use flat top edging as its cheapest product and its a nice clean line"

    "Depends on area, any specific requirement and whether you need any KL edging or border."
