These have only been around since the early eighties but seem to have lasted the test of time. There are many different types colours and styles to choose from, you could even make your own pattern if you so desire. The advantages of having a block paved driveway are marginal; much of it comes down to personal taste. But durability is a major attraction as block paving can last a very long time.
Firstly You will need to remove your existing driveway, this could be either concrete, tarmac or concrete flags. To make life easy hire a mini digger from a local tool hire company and you will clear this stage in a day. If you want to however this can be done by hand but will take much longer to do!
There are 2 methods you can employ as the bed for block paving, one, you have fully compacted sand making the sub base and the laying coarse much firmer, achieving a much flatter surface. To achieve this you need your sand approx 10 – 15mm higher than the finished screeding height, this surplus sand is screeded off to the correct height and then you lay your block paving.
