Concrete block paving offers a wide selection of sizes, styles and colours that will add character to your driveway, as well as providing a durable long lasting surface. The blocks can be used to form regular, irregular and specific patterns as per requirement.
When edged with a nice block or granite setts tarmac can look great, we can lay the sub base and edgings then well get a tarmac contractor in the spread the tarmac.
With the many ranges on the market there will be something to suit all tastes and budgets, i would recommend sealing the slabs though as tyres and oil stains could ruin the look of the drive.
Aco channels and soak aways can be a must for driveways especially if your drives on a slope, permeable block pavings is also an option, if your drive slopes to the road you will need drainage at the front to meet regulations.
If your block paving has a sunken area this can easily be fixed or if you just want your drive cleaned up we can take care of that for you.
Gates and railings are great for security and are easily achieved, wether you want a timber gated or an automatic iron gate, we can build the piers and organise the electrics for you.

For most people cost will be a big factor. Concrete is probably the cheapest material, although on larger drives tarmac comes close. Then there is the various concrete block paving stones and slabs, where the price variation is massive. Gravel probably comes somewhere between the aforementioned two, with the big advantage being that you can lay it yourself with few tools – if you have the back for it!
If your drive falls to the road drainage channels will be needed to stop the rainwater flowing onto the road.
We prefer block paving but both are a great choice, The reason, in our opinion that block paving wins is because it’s easy to repair, if a section sinks or oil is spilt, the blocks can easily be taken up and relaid/replaced, also if you need to get access to a pipe or cable the work can be done and the blocks can be relaid whereas tarmac will have to be patched and that might not match the rest of the drive.
