You must think about the overall dimensions of your block paving dive in Peasedown St John during the design stage of the process, to make certain that it is big enough for your purpose. You'll need to be able to move around and easily park your vehicle, and it is better to organise your new drive around these prerequisites, although the size of the land area you've got to build it on will have an influence on this.

It isn't worth taking the risk of using people who just turn up at your front door with statements like "we're working down the street on another project, do you want..?" They may obviously be legit (highly unlikely), and there are hundreds of scary stories of folks being embarrassed and out of pocket when the promised drive is not finished, or receiving shoddy work done.

Provisioned for any decent quote should be items like:

  • Preparation (excavation) of the area to be paved
  • Installation of sub-base
  • Water run-off and drainage requirements
  • Colour, quantity and style of block pavers
  • Waste disposal arrangements
  • Other factors to consider
