Driveway paving is quite popular in the UK. It provides a heard-wearing surface for front gardens so you can park your cars, and also improves the outside appearance of a home. People will see the driveway first as they approach, so the better your driveway the bigger the impression! (You could also enhance this further with security gates and brick walls, but that’s for another article.
According to Bosun Brick, a leading manufacturer of pre-cast concrete pavers and kerbs, the selection of the correct product for your application is essential for the long term durability of the paved area.
Once you have your materials you need to start work in your area. Make sure all debris and other materials are cleared and then begin to set your sub base. Your sub base will ideally be made of very fine gravel or preferably sand. You are going to want to set a sub base of roughly 70 mm deep so that your paving stones appear to be level with the ground but are also protected from the dirt underneath the sub base. This will also help with any drainage issues you may have with your block paving path.
Consumers should sweep and hose the paved area down regularly to keep it free of debris and stop the build up of dust and grime. It is also wise to fill the areas in between the pavers with plaster sand once every year. This will ensure that the paving remains rigid and does not shift.
