About Us

With more than 20 years of industry experience, First Highways brings an exceptional level of expertise to your project. This enables us to give you the best advice, and the best services, for high standard finishes on driveways, drop kerbs and similar hard landscaping features. To ensure your complete satisfaction, our work is based around the three core values of quality, reliability and transparent pricing.

First Highways was even the first company to get around the issue of putting drop kerbs next to trees. Nobody in our area had used this method before we put it forward and gained approval for it from our local authority.


As a dedicated hard landscaping company, we hold the required accreditations to carry out work on highways and private land, including block paving and tarmac drive laying in Gravesend and the surrounding areas.  We also carry valid CSCS cards and have various industry accreditations.

These include:

  • Checkatrade

  • Constructionline

  • Safe Contractor

  • Medway Fair Trader

In addition, we have public and employer liability insurance in place for your peace of mind.

Focused on Your Project

At First Highways, we believe your project should get the attention it deserves. That’s why we only take on one job at a time. This enables us to fully devote our workforce to your needs. As well as ensuring the closest attention to detail, only having one job on the go ensures we complete work as quickly as possible. We deliberately maintain a small, personable team so that we can better concentrate on all projects undertaken in the local areas we cover.

Furthermore, with our experience, we can suggest ways to save costs on hardscaping without compromising on quality. This includes work on paved drives, tarmac drives and patios.
