  Good Repair Guide: Driveways and Paths


Driveways and paths require maintenance and may need to be repaired from time to time. The frequency and type of repair depends on the surface finish.

Paths and driveways can become overgrown, and tree roots growing underneath are likely to cause cracking and unevenness of the surface.

This Good Repair Guide identifies some of the common problems with driveways and paths and describes repair options. If damage is extensive, however, the best option may be removal and a full replacement of the driveway or path. Full replacement of a driveway or path is outside the scope of this Good Repair Guide.
