Wheel-track drive materials

Because we have limited garden space, we want to create a wheel-track driveway. What materials would you recommend we use to maximise kerb appeal and make it stable and durable?

"For light use 150mm hardcore and slabs laid over on concrete - for medium to heavy use -concrete 350mm deep - for heavy use 450mm-600mm deep with reinforced metal added.
Between one - two cubic metres of soil needs removing and disposing of.
On a tight budget 350mm of hardcore will suffice and could be topped with decorative shale ,but this will need topping up over time ."

"Block paving layed on a well wackered down base layed on sand will always be durable and kerb appealing. The blocks together with the acrow drains, together with the kerb in my opinion is kerb appealing."

"Right so at the moment what is on the surface as it is right now if it’s just grass mud area well if that’s the case then what really needs to be done firstly is to iver put concrete kerbs on each side of track see there are a few ways you can go but if you haven’t done it yet send me some pictures and if it’s gonna be used regularly with machines daily then you would need to mk it a lot stronger"
