If you are doing it yourself then you should make sure you know where the best place to get the materials would be, and step by step on how to do what you are trying to do. This can be done simply with one or two people; it will save you money since you are not paying for labor and just for materials for the paving. If you were to hire someone to do this work for you then you would end up paying more money in the end just for labor.
When you complete the laying of your full blocks you then need to cut in the borders, you can cut bricks using a block splitter. Holding the brick in place over the border, looking from above mark a line onto the full block on each side where it meets the border, draw a line between these 2 points and cut off the surplus using the block splitter, then simply put the cut block in place.
Traditional gravel or pea shingle driveways: These were once only for the very wealthy. They were introduced as a security measure. The idea being that when a vehicle or person made contact with the shingle, the noise would alert the household to the intruder.
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!
