We excavate our driveways to a minimum depth of 200mm ensuring all debris is removed from site. The excavated area is then based out using 110mm of lean mix concrete and consolidated with a wacker plate. 30/40mm of sharp sand is then laid, levelled, compacted and screeded to the required level to form the bedding layer. We then lay all block paving on this bedding layer and all edging blocks on a bed of sharp sand and cement to prevent future movement. Finally we consolidate once more sweeping kiln dried sand between joints.
Our patios are excavated to the same specifications as our driveways. We then base out the exposed area with MOT Type 1 crushed concrete or lean mix depending on ground conditions and consolidate with a wacker plate. Paving slabs are laid and levelled onto wet mortar and pointed between joints using a 3:1 wet mortar mix.

After your initial enquiry we will make an appointment at your convenience to visit you at home to survey the area you require to be paved. We will discuss your requirements regarding pattern, colour, texture, edging, raised borders and all aspects of your project’s detailing.
Customer satisfaction is paramount to us, from initial enquiry to completion of the installation it’s why we get so many recommendations.
Once you place your order, a fixed installation date is agreed and the work is carried out in one visit.
Breathing new life into a tired hardscape can be achieved on your existing driveway or patio which in effect is very cost effective. We clean your paving using high pressure jet washers and chemicals if needed to bring it back to its original sate. Sealants is also an option on block paving as it stabilises sand joints as well as inhibiting weed growth, reduces ant infestations, moss and lichen hence bringing out the colour of the paving back.
