Block Paving Driveway - Bramley

Mrs Williams asked us to replace her old concrete driveway which was cracked and uneven, with a nice new one. She opted for a new Herringbone style Block Paving Driveway with inlayed pattern. To start with, we dug up the existing concrete and removed some of the underlying ground to allow for the new hardcore and sand base. With the excavation complete we then laid the weed control membrane and added the new mix of stone hardcore. This was compacted down to make the base solid on which to lay the sand mix ready for the blocks.

We then laid the two tone black and buff edging blocks around the perimeter of the drive to create a lovely looking border. Once this was complete, the interior herringbone block arrangement was laid along with interior pattern, using Aaron Bone Block from Plasma Paving.

I had my driveway done in September by the guys at FM Paving and they were brilliant and cleaned up after the job was done. First class!
