ECCOgravel is a specially designed gravel stabilisation system that is ideal for keeping outdoor paths and driveways looking smart.
The innovative fitted honeycomb structure will firmly hold your loose aggregates or gravel in place, ensuring that your path or driveway has a supported and even surface – making it more user-friendly for people and vehicles. Everything is kept neatly in place inside the hexagonal cells, avoiding the common problem of spread, lost or scattered gravel. ECCOgravel sheets produce a firm gravel surface which is not only low maintenance but also SUDS compliant.

It is recommended not to use gravel types with a size of less than 4mm; finer gravels could stick to people’s shoes or get between the profiles on the tyres of a car. For optimum compaction in the honeycomb, we recommend limiting the maximum diameter of the gravel to 16mm. The sheets support the use of rounded pebbles and most decorative aggregates.
