Why Block Paving?

Block paving is a brilliant way to pave and landscape the outside areas of your home. Block paving can be used for driveways, paths and patio areas, looking smart and adding extra kerb appeal to both modern and classic homes.

Block paving is strong and long-lasting, it is robust enough for the weight and movement of vehicles, so is ideal for your driveway and parking area. A benefit of block paving over other paving methods is that single pieces of block paving can be removed if need be, to allow for pipework or anything under the paving to be attended to and then the blocks can be replaced again easily, with no damage to your block paved area.

There are several patterns used in block paving. The most popular due to its strength is the herringbone design, others include stretcher bond and basketweave patterns. There are many shades and colours of block paving to choose from. When working on your paving project it is best to work from several packs of bricks at the same time to avoid blocks of colour forming from one pack, this way you get a good colour mix.

It can be a good idea to use two colour options, one main colour and a darker shade to mark out edges of steps and path boundaries, this gives a well-finished effect. Another block paving option is to use a circle kit as a feature within your patio or driveway. These can be good especially in a square or rectangular shaped area as the circle will add curves and interest to your garden or driveway.

Block paving is normally laid with a sub-base and layer of sand, which helps rain water run away efficiently. The design also needs to be slightly sloped so as to encourage rainwater to run away from the house.
