Block Paving Driveways

Block paving is probably the most popular driveway paving option at the moment. Properly laid block paving is very hard wearing and long lasting, making it an excellent choice for driveway paving. We can help you to select paving blocks that will complement your house and produce the kind of finish you want, either traditional or modern. Your block paving can be laid in a range of patterns, including popular herringbone patterns. Whichever combination of blocks and pattern you choose for your driveway we ensure that your driveway had the best possible finish and is a real asset to your home.

Tarmacing (Macadam) Drives

Tarmac drives are a really popular choice. As well as being extremely durable tarmac driveways have the benefit of being quick to install. Although a good base is needed to get a smooth and long lasting finish the preparation for laying a tarmac drive is generally much less than for block paving and the drive itself can often be laid in a day. As well as traditional black tarmac we can also supply coloured tarmac and combine tarmac with decorative paving to give your driveway a distinctive and attractive look.

Driveway Bases and Drainage

The key to a long lasting and durable driveway is the base. To ensure that your driveway will drain properly and not build up standing water the base will need to have sensible gradient in the right direction for water to drain away from your house. Once the gradient is established we will lay an appropriate sub-base and base. The thickness of your base, and the type of materials used, will be determined by the type of finish you have selected for your driveway and we will discuss this with you in the planning phase.

As well as laying your new driveway we can also do any associated landscaping that you might need. As well as edging the drive, we can create borders, planters and beds to suit your location and planting scheme. Having the landscaping done at the same time as your driveway really tops of driveway projects and gives them a great finish.
