Mr Smith existing driveway was a combination of worn out tarmac and grassy area in need of some tidying. The old drive was uneven and unsightly. Mr Smith wanted a new fresh, block paved driveway, that would last a long time, be resistant to the weather and weeds.
Block paving was the perfect choice. The concrete stones provide a very hard wearing, robust surface which needs little maintenance. We removed the old driveway and part of the garden, cleared all the rubble and rubbish away. The next stage was to lay new hardcore and compact it down to provide a solid base. Next job was to lay a hardy membrane and the concrete, sand base mix. Once settled, compacted and flat, we began laying the grey edge blocks before covering the driveway with red blocks in a herringbone design. The entire job took three days.
Time to complete: 3 days
