If you've already got a drive on your property in Bovey Tracey, the related materials and waste will need to be lifted, removed and disposed of in a responsible way.

The regulations require that new driveways are laid two brick courses or 150mm below the current damp proof course of your house.

Bovey Tracey block paved driveways being installed upon bare earth or grass, will need approximately 9" (230mm) of soil to be dug out and taken away. This enables a good sub-base and sharp sand to be laid before your block pavers are installed.

Compacted to form a durable, solid and sturdy surface for your patio, driveway or footpath in Bovey Tracey, MOT Type 1 is a crushed granular aggregate, usually made from granite or limestone.

To create a more seamless and sympathetic entrance for older homes in Bovey Tracey, you may favour purchasing the traditional style of block pavers, better known as tumbled pavers. Pre-faded during manufacture and with a time-worn and rustic appearance, tumbled block pavers give the impression that they've been there since the house was built.

A coating of sealant is a great way to secure the investment that you have made in your new block paving driveway.

Block paving driveways must never be treated straight after installation, as it is vital for the sand and joints to settle properly for a period of time. The suggested waiting time for coating a new drive with sealer is 6 mths, and it is always better to use a specialist for this kind of work as it's hard to rectify any mistakes that are made with this process.
