Do people turn round in your driveway?

Some householders are generous folk.   I remember trying to do three point turn in a narrow road and the owner of a house with a gravel driveway informed me that I could turn around in the entrance to his property.   Very kind.   If only the whole world were made up of such kind souls.  The rest of the populace with a similar access to their home don't take to kindly to that type of vehicular behaviour.   Some resort to having some rope tied across their frontage with a couple of dangly bits of plastic hanging from it.   You know the type of plastic, they were used to cordon off roadworks in yesteryear.   I wonder if there is a website for classic roadwork sineage?  There's bound to be.   I digress.   They could place a couple of roadwork cones in the drive. Hmm.   Unattractive.   This is where I drive, sorry, step in.   Coming soon to our website: moulded granite rocks.   You can buy them or hire them for events and exhibitions.

Granite style artificial rocks

One or two of these can be positioned across the entrance and booted out of the way when access is required.   The master cast was taken from a real rock.   One rock but many faces: in the image above they all look different but it's just the way they were placed.  You can also have a salmon pink version and a black version, just in case you feel the need to complement the local stone.

These are different to our glassfibre rocks.   The glassfibre rocks are undistinguishable from the real thing, even at close range.   The polyethelene granite rocks above are very realistic but at very close range you can see some areas where the mould joints were.   The major advantage, however, is that the polyethelene rocks are extremely tough and durable.   If an errant motorist insists on turning round in your drive and these were placed in the way, the car could hit them at considerable speed they would survive intact.   Our more realistic rocks may crack a little.   These are ideally suited for green roofs, exhibitions and private households where access and cost prohibits the use of real rocks.   See them at http://www.artificialrocks.co.uk/
