Sub Base

Sub Base

For all our driveways and patios we only use the highest quality sub base with a minimum depth of 100mm for a patio and 150mm for a driveway, by doing this we can guarantee that are driveways and patios will not move or sink.



Groundwork and Block Paving


Brick or Block paving is very versatile. (Try our DIY Block Paving Guide.) They look great on driveways and will provide a long period of service. They can be used to great effect as paths, or patios, or mixed with other paving types to create a unique feature. Considered as an alternative to the more traditional Tarmac surfacing for roads and do look a lot more attractive. Otherwise known as flexible paving, indicating that the blocks or bricks are laid on a sand bed and the joints filled with a fine sand. We work to BS 6677 for clay blocks and for concrete blocks BS6717. BS7533 is the standards we apply to the construction of the projects, which cover light use and heavy use respectively.

Traditional Block Patterns

All block paving for driveways should be laid in a fully inter-locked pattern. The most popular such patterns are 45 or 90 Herringbone patterns. However, the other patterns are quite suitable for light usage such as pathways or patios. Whatever the purposes, we can help you choose the type of block, colour, style, decoration, shape and texture to fit in with the style of your garden and property.
