What is a Block Paved Driveway?

A block paved driveway is a type of surface covering that uses interlocking paving blocks to create a visually striking and highly durable driveway. These blocks come in a variety of shapes, colours, and sizes, allowing for endless design possibilities. Block paving is renowned for its versatility, making it a popular choice for homeowners seeking a unique and stylish way to enhance their driveways.

How Are Block Paved Driveways Installed?

The installation of block paved driveways is a meticulous process that requires precision and expertise. Here’s a brief overview of the installation steps:

  • Site Preparation
    Before the paving process begins, our team thoroughly prepares the site. This involves removing existing materials and ensuring a stable, well-drained base.
  • Sub-base Installation
    A strong sub-base is essential for the longevity of your block-paved driveway. We carefully install a lean mix concrete base, and compact it to create a stable foundation.
  • Edge Restraints
    To maintain the integrity of the design and prevent movement, edge restraints are installed along the perimeter of the driveway.
  • Sand Bedding
    A layer of sharp sand is spread over the compacted sub-base, providing a stable and level surface for the blocks.
  • Block Paving Installation
    The interlocking blocks are meticulously laid in the desired pattern. Attention to detail is crucial to achieve a flawless finish.
  • Compaction and Jointing
    Once the blocks are in place, we use a compactor to settle them into the sand bedding. Kiln-dried sand is then brushed into the joints, securing the blocks in position.
  • Final Compaction
    To ensure a solid, even surface, the driveway is compacted one final time, ensuring the blocks are securely in place.
  • Cleaning
    The driveway is thoroughly cleaned to remove any residue.
  • Sealing
    Sealing is recommended after the first year to allow effervescence to leave the blocks first.
