Block Paving Driveway - Mexbrough, Sheffield

Mr Morgan had an old concrete drive and pathway which he wanted to replace so he asked if we could help sort it. Around the front garden was an old wall and fence which was looking old and tired. We removed the wall first to allow us access to the garden. We then dug out the old driveway, garden and path. We created new footings and built a nice new wall around the garden. We then laid a new turf area before beginning work on the new drive.

A new hardcore base was laid and compacted to take the sand & concrete base mix, along with a heavy duty membrane for weed control. The base was laid and tamped to create a hard flat surface. Once done we began laying the Plasmore 50 paving blocks in a herringbone design. The driveway also had a grey block border around the perimeter and buff cobbing stones atop the wall. The whole job took just 7 days to complete.
