This is something that you should look into because if you can pave your driveways on your own, you will be saving money in the long run. This means that you have options out there to utilize, and mostly any house would look complete with a pavement that is perfectly fit for your home. You can find out what types of paving are out there for you to use from the internet before you order them online, or go to the store near you to pick them up.
Using a tight string line to get the screeding rails to the correct finished height prior to screeding the sand, check for level or falling towards any drains, a 1:60 fall is required, that’s 1” in height to 60” in length minimum fall to ensure any surface water drains into your drainage system or soak-a-way.
The other way is to have 2/3 compacted sand and a third loose sand which you screed to the desired height, this is easier to screed but can result in soft spots. Establish the finished height of your block paving use a block as a guide and push it down into the sand until it is 5mm higher than the finished height to allow for the final compacting once all the block paving is laid.
These asphalt paved driveways consist of rock particles, sand, and asphalt cement, which make it flexible and durable at the same time. New asphalt is by far the most flexible because it still retains many of the lighter hydrocarbon oils that make up its DNA structure. Crushed gravel makes up the foundation on which the asphalt is laid, to promote stability of the asphalt structure.
