Mr Johnson, from Nottingham, wanted to replace his old worn out tarmac driveway with a nice new one in Natural Stone Block Paving. First job as always is to remove the old tarmac and dig out enough of the existing earth to allow for a solid base foundation. Then we laid a heavy duty membrane which protects against weed growth. Type one hardcore is then laid over the top and compacted down to create a sturdy base that is much less likely to move or subside.
Once the foundation was in place, we then set about laying the blocks in a staggered pattern. As an addition, we also built new garden walls to the property entrance and finished off with landscaping the garden. The entire job took five days to complete from start to finish.
Time to completion: 3 days
