How is Block Paving carried out?

We excavate the area out and lay a sub base of type 1 or machine crushed concrete and compact it down with a vibrating plate we then lay a sharp sand down and compact that also to a depth of 50 mil.

The blocks are then laid on top at a 90 – 45 degree angle and compressed down with a vibrating whacker plate.

Finally kiln dried sand is swept in the small gaps between the blocks to provide a clean a modern finish as well as deter weeds.

What is Block Paving?

Block paving, often also referred to as brick paving is an attractive and hard wearing solution for driveways, pathways, roads or patios. It is easy to
maintain, lasts for years and easy to fix individual blocks or sections if they’re damaged or stained over time. Block paving creates a great first impression on a driveway or pathway at the front of a property or a clean and tranquil finish to a rear garden or private area at the back of a home or business.

The blocks are usually made from concrete or clay and there is wide range of styles and colours to choose from to achieve your desired look and feel. Various patterns can be chosen; along with a mixture of block colours. The manufacturing process of these blocks is now typically done with recycled materials from the construction world making it a more environmentally friendly solution to choose.
