To lay a solid and quality driveway we will dig out to a depth of around 8-10 inches, we will then screed approx. 25-40mm before laying any blocks.
It is possible to drive over the block paved driveway straightaway. However, if you have chosen to have a block paving sealer applied after laying, then we recommend waiting at least 8 hours for the sealant to cure.
Edgings come in various materials, many different designs and colours. Edgings can also serve different purposes. The most common use of an edging is for soil or grass retention! A good quality decorative edging gives a neat appearance and a clean sharp finish to any surface. With block paving, the edge is an integral part of a path or drive giving the block integrity and strength. It restrains outward thrust pressure and avoids movement of the block surface. It is well worth spending the extra money and making sure that you fit the correct edging kerbs.
We can style a drive, path or patio to suite your tastes and match the character of the property. Whether you wish it to make “a statement” or just to mellow in with its surrounding, we can help. One thing is for sure – no matter what choice, you will have a driveway that will give you a homecoming welcome and that will last for years to come.
With block paving, weed growth does not come from below the block but from surface seeding. This can be minimized by spraying with a weed killer twice a year and keeping your driveway in good condition. A minimum amount of maintenance is required on all path and driveway surfaces. It may be that once a year you just wash your driveway down using a pressure washer; or, like so many people, use our specialist cleaning service!
The block paving colour will wear as trafficked, however each manufacturer offers a guarantee in relation to this.
Many people worry about restoration of block surfaces. When you have installed new windows in your home, you expect to clean them again at some point. The dirt and grime are still attracted to them and it is the same with block paved surfaces. A minimal amount of attention is required. We offer you a cleaning, sanding and sealing service which can be carried out for a very reasonable price. The result is that you have a driveway that is well maintained and the colour of the block is emphasized with the sealant. The sealant resists weed growth between the blocks.
