Block Paving Driveway - Worksop

Mrs Oaks asked us to breathe new life into her tired old driveway. She opted for an all Cobblestone Block Paved Driveway. First things first, we needed to clear the old driveway of concrete, rubbish and earth to allow for the new hardcore and sand base. With the old drive removed, we then added the new mix of stone hardcore and compacted it down to create a solid base on which to lay the sand mix ready for the cobblestones.

The next step was to lay the edging blocks around the perimeter of the drive. The edging design used a a grey cobble block to create a nice frame. Once this was complete, the interior staggered block arrangement was laid.
