Driveways from a Local Landscaping Company

At First Highways, one of our specialties is tarmac laying for driveways and pavements. With more than 20 years of combined experience, our landscaping company delivers professional, durable solutions to domestic and commercial customers. From tarmac drives and pathways in our home town of Sittingbourne, to car parks and forecourts in Gravesend, our dedicated team takes on jobs of any size. We use Conway tarmac and utilise the latest techniques while offering expert advice on installations to ensure you get the best value for money.

Tarmac is a very popular material which, for over 100 years, has been a first choice for various surfacing applications. As a cost-effective and durable material, it offers a range of benefits for both domestic and commercial users.

Complete Tarmac Services

With so many years of experience, our landscaping company can offer a variety of tarmac services to meet your needs. Before starting a project, we always provide a site visit and no-obligation quotation. This ensures you always receive the most suitable and cost-effective solution.

Our tarmac services also include the initial groundworks, such as excavation, site preparation and edging installation. These are all essential steps for tarmac drives and other surfacing jobs because they help form the structure and ensure a premium quality finish that always functions as it should.

We have an excellent reputation throughout the areas we cover, holding Kent Trading Standards approval as well as being a member of the Medway Fair Trader scheme.

Tarmac Drives

As driveway experts, First Highways frequently constructs these drives for homes and businesses. We also build driveways in other materials, such as block paving. Whichever material you choose, we lay a stable sub-base under every drive to prevent sinking and to maximise longevity.

Car Parks

Car parks are a crucial feature for many local businesses. They provide customers with a safe and convenient place to park. We construct smooth tarmac surfaces and carry out white lining for a reliable, functional and professional finish that also you help you to organise parking spaces.


Tarmac is ideal for footpaths because it is a durable and slip-resistant material. It is also relatively quick and easy to install, minimising disruption and helping projects to stay inside budget. We will discuss the resources you have for a project and make a suitable recommendation on materials.


A well-designed forecourt, such as those our hard landscaping company can provide, ensures your business premises in the Gravesend area offer the perfect first impression. A nicely laid out and functional forecourt is also an important aspect of managing and organising your business operations.


First Highways undertakes services for either old or damaged tarmac drives, pathways and other surfaces. Depending on the condition of your tarmac surface, we can repair or replace it so that it will last for many more years. It is possible to lay over old tarmac without needing groundworks.
