For many of our customers, the summer is a time of renewal, growth, and renovation, and we couldn’t agree more – especially when it comes to driveways. In this article, we’ll be going through the various reasons why summer is the perfect time of year for having a brand new driveway laid.

NatraTex’s products can be used to create a range of coloured driveways, in a truly vast number of styles. Whether you’re using NatraTex Eco to create an ecologically neutral driveway or NatraTex Colour to create a bright, colourful one, we can help you.

Read on to discover why summer is the perfect time to have a new driveway installed.

You can see how it’s done

It really is interesting to see a resurfacing job up close. Not only do you get an appreciation for the engineering that goes into laying a surface, but as a customer you also get to view and make input in real time. This allows you to ensure that the surface being laid is exactly the surface you want.

That level of control may sound a little excessive – and it could be – but depending on the type of surface being laid it could make all the difference. For example, you may not need to offer direct input if you’re having a uniform surface laid – perhaps using our NatraTex Cotswold material. However, if you’re having a more intricate design laid, or have to abide very specific rules in regards to what can and can’t be laid on your property, then it could mean the difference between a successful job and a costly bodge.

Everything looks beautiful in summer

Everyone has their own tastes when it comes to their favourite season – ours in Autumn – but it’s hard to ignore the fact that everything just looks perfect during the summer. Maybe it’s the bright summer sun or perhaps it’s the bright blue sky that frames everything in just the right way. Regardless of the specific reason why, one thing is clear: your freshly laid driveway will always look best during the summer time.

And it’s a good thing that things look their best during the summer, too. Thanks to the weather and the way that the school holidays are organised, summer is the season where we spend most of our time outdoors. It’s the time we spend gardening, having barbecues, and just generally spending time outdoors. This means that summer is the only time of year where you’ll actively have the opportunity to actually enjoy your driveway and not simply have it as part of the background as you go about your daily life.
