First of all, pavers are more flexible as they use sand as a foundation. Their increased level of flexibility allows them to shift with the weight of the vehicle, even if it is only minutely. However, this protects them from cracking. Installation costs are also much cheaper, since it simply requires sand and the paving blocks.
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.
Drives, parkings and pavements: These are usually hard surfaces like tarmac or paving blocks. They provide access and circulation within the compound. Pavements are good for training pedestrians on what routes to follow inside the compound. This will prevent trampling of areas like landscaped lawns.
Once you have set all the stones, available online at Midland Stone, you need to fill any gaps with concrete and wait another 72 hours to let everything settle down. Once everything is set you are going to remove any excess materials from the area and power wash your gorgeous new block pavement. After the mandatory 72 hour period feel free to walk on your block paving, move materials like chairs or tables onto it and just generally enjoy it- you earned it.
