PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Ashby-de-La-Zouch UK (01530)

If you've got a pre-existing driveway, this material will need to be removed and disposed of in the correct fashion. It may be necessary to perform more excavations to make certain regulations with respect to your property's DPC (damp proof course) are adhered to. New driveway installations are required to be 2 brick courses or 150mm below the current damp proof course.

Ashby-de-La-Zouch block paved driveways that are being laid over grass or bare earth, will need approximately 230mm (9") of soil to be dug out and taken away. This ensures that before your block paving is laid, a good sub-base and sharp sand stratum can be established.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

The sub-base is made out of a sharp sand covered layer of MOT Type 1 crushed material. To make certain your driveway won't move or develop dips where pools can form, a solid sub-base is vital. Generally comprising granite or limestone which is compacted to create a sturdy, durable and firm surface for your path, driveway or terrace in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, Type 1 is a kind of crushed aggregate mixture.

This is the time where drainage issues will be dealt with. To encourage excess water to drain off easily, an incline or fall, will be inserted, if one isn't already present in the lay of the land. This will be directed either away from your house or into purpose built drainage channels that are installed in between your dwelling and the drive.

Sharp sand is shovelled onto the compacted sub-base aggregate and levelled off to form a base for the paving blocks to be set into.

DRAINAGE AND WATER RUN-OFF REQUIREMENTS

Excess water has to be run off to a permeable area on any driveways over five square metres in Ashby-de-La-Zouch. Planning permission from your local council will be needed, if this stipulation cannot be complied with. In order to avoid local flooding, any surface water run-off from your drive cannot be redirected into the main drainage system.

Further drainage and design features may have to be considered if your house is within the legally defined limits of a conservation area. A reliable installation specialist will have the experience and knowhow to be able to steer you through this process.

AMOUNT, COLOUR AND STYLE OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a lot of different shapes, colours and sizes to suit any design of driveway you want. From the commonplace and widely available, straight sided, square or rectangular pavers, to the more ornate, diamond, s-shape, circular and curved designs, there'll be a style which satisfies your needs perfectly. You could match your drive colours with your property's brickwork, or create an attractive feature with a completely different colour.

Tumbled Block Paving Ashby-de-La-Zouch (LE65)

Older properties in Ashby-de-La-Zouch may be better suited to the traditional style block pavers, better known as tumble or tumbled pavers, which produce a more seamless and sympathetic result.

There are also contemporary block pavers for a more modern look, which when properly sealed, provide a high-gloss finish.

Your new block paved driveway in Ashby-de-La-Zouch could be designed as a simple oblong or square shape, or it could weave around other hard landscaping features of your garden.

No matter what design you decide on, a decent block paving contractor in Ashby-de-La-Zouch will build you a wonderful looking drive that will make your neighbours envious.

You must also think about installing a suitable edging. Your local installer will be delighted to discuss the advantages and drawbacks of raised edging, contrasting colours and shapes, or if your driveway even needs an edging (as when butting up against walls).

WASTE DISPOSAL

Any block paving installation quotation must include the charges for the removal of waste and soil and its proper disposal. Obviously, the volume of waste materials and soil that must be carted away will depend on the overall size of your new driveway and whether a pre-existing drive is involved. Unless you can make use of the earth in other sections of your garden, it will have to be moved by by truck. Soil and old driveway materials that are excavated must be disposed of in a sound, environmentally friendly manner at a registered site.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

Nearly all block paving contractors in Ashby-de-La-Zouch will advise you to put a sealing coat your new driveway after installation, although this isn't absolutely essential. Sealing a block paving drive will help keep your drive from staining, inhibits the growth of weed and algae, prevents fading and prolongs the life of your driveway. The applying of an appropriate paving sealer is a great way to protect the considerable investment that you have made in your new drive.

Sealers must never be put on a newly installed driveway as jointing and sand needs to settle properly over time. It's advised to use a professional for the application of sealant, as errors are tricky to fix, and it is suggested that you wait a minimum of six months before doing it.

CONCLUSION

You can truly transform the appearance of your home in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, with a new block paved driveway or patio. It can create a wonderful area to relax and enjoy a durable seating and barbeque area in your back garden, or provide a stable and hard wearing area for securely parking your vehicles.
