So you’ve been looking at a new driveway? You’ve probably quickly realised that there is far more to it than just a standard tarmac job then…

One of our most popular jobs comes in the form of block paving driveways, providing a fully customisable and bespoke space, that not only makes your house look better but can also increase the value of your property.

If you’re considering block paving but are unsure exactly how it works, let our blog try and cover some of the most frequently asked questions.

Why Block Paving Driveways?

Quickly becoming the go-to option for many UK homes, BPD’s allow for an aesthetically pleasing job without the fuss and upkeep of gravelled or grass jobs. Should any problems arise, because of the interlocking system used, single bricks can easily be replaced, something that isn’t so simple on other types of driveways.

It is also a good idea for back gardens, saving valuable time on upkeep and maintaining the appearance of the exterior of your property. The materials used are mostly recycled too, so you are helping the environment as well.

First Steps

So you’re considering the block paving driveway. First up you need to think of the colour schemes that you would like. The beauty of this method is that the bricks can be customised to suit any type of driveway and any preference.

To help you out, why not draw (or design on a computer) your paving idea, this will enable us to recommend any changes or drawbacks to the design, as well as coming up with the most accurate quote.

Things to Note

You may need to apply for planning permission if your driveway is to cover an area of more than five square metres. Traditional paving slabs which don’t allow water to seep in or be able to drain effectively and naturally will also need permission.

If you’re unsure of either of the above, just let us know and we can do our best to point you in the right direction.
