Before installing a block pave driveway, it is important to prepare the ground. The area to be block paved is dug out, hardcore laid, leveled and compacted. Drainage is installed, if required. A weed free membrane is laid and sharp sand is laid, leveled and compacted.
The edgings are then laid. There are a variety of materials that may be used for the edgings. There is a choice of the type of material in different colours, sizes, shapes and designs. The colour of the edgings can contrast or compliment the driveway.
The block paving is laid in a choice of pattern. Once it is laid, kiln dried sand is swept between the block pave joints and compacted. This allows for the movement of vehicles over the block pave without damaging them. .Any excess sand is brushed away.
Bespoke designs can be incorporated. Steps, if required, can also be incorporated keeping the same design as the driveway.
