Block Pavers Leyland UK (01772)

If you've already got a driveway, the related construction materials and waste will need to be lifted, removed and disposed of in a responsible and ethical way. Further excavations may be required to make sure your new block pave driveway complies with building regulations with respect to the damp proof course of your home. The rules require that new driveways are laid at least 2 courses of bricks or 6 inches below the current damp proof course of your structure.

Leyland block paving driveways being installed on top of bare earth or grass, will need around 230mm (9") of soil to be dug out and taken away. This ensures that before any block paving is laid, a good sub-base and sharp sand layer can be established.

SUB-BASE INSTALLATION

The sub-base is created from a sharp sand topped layer of MOT Type 1 crushed material. The installation of a sturdy and firm sub-base is vital to ensure your new driveway does not develop low lying spots where pools can form and cause you problems. Normally made from granite or limestone which is compacted to create a firm, sturdy and durable surface for your driveway, terrace or footpath in Leyland, MOT Type 1 is a type of crushed granular aggregate.

As soon as the sub-base aggregate has been compacted down, sharp sand can be added and levelled out to form a good base for laying the blocks.
