We raise the standard when building you a driveway! Not only will you have a fabulously designed driveway to come home to, you will know that because of the preparation and attention to detail, it will be solid underneath too.


Here is the process we go through when laying a new block paved driveway:

  • We oversee all necessary planning and third party approvals on your behalf
  • We carefully excavate the site of your driveway to an accurate and correct depth
  • The edge restraint is laid on a sturdy concrete foundation around the perimeter
  • A thick geotextile membrane is laid on the soil base to prevent the sub base mixing with the underlying layers. It can also help prevent weed growth.
  • Two 75mm layers of MOT type 1 material are laid, compacted and levelled to give a solid hardcore base to your driveway
  • A 50mm layer of sand is then laid and levelled to create a perfect block laying surface
  • The driveway blocks are carefully laid and aligned to customers chosen pattern
  • We measure and cut the final blocks to size and fill the joints with kiln dried jointing sand
  • The blocks are compacted and a final brush in of the joints is carried out
  • A quality driveway sealer is added to protect the blocks and deliver an invisible protection against water damage. Assuming application instructions and coverage guidelines are adhered to, the sealer provides effective water repellency for years.
  • Your new driveway is now ready for use

Our team can help you with extras such as decorative edges, lighting, steps and kerbs.

Kerbs play an essential part in both your driveway and garden design, performing a number of functions and adding the finishing touch to any driveway. There are kerbs to suit all paving ranges. All our kerbs can be laid in a variety of positions by simply rotating the unit to suit. By incorporating raised kerbs into your driveway or garden area, you will add real character and make your drive unique. Edgings for driveways and garden areas come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and materials. The reasons for using an edging are manifold, but usually include one or more of the following:

  • To restrain the paving, keeping it in place, as with block paving
  • To create a step up or down between the paving and another surface
  • To ensure traffic keeps to the driveway
  • To allow garden soil or turf to be kept separate from the paving
  • To keep vegetation and weeds growing out of your paving

Herringbone, Stretcher bond & basket weave are paving patterns that we always use, ask a member of our team to let you see our portfolio showing you the different designs and colours and the patterns we have created to see which one you like the best.
