When designing and planning your new block paved drive in Yatton it is vital to think carefully when you are looking at just how large you should build it. You will need to be able to safely park and manoeuvre your vehicle, and it is best to plan your driveway around these requirements, although the dimensions of the land area that you have to build it on may well determine this. If you are able to build a drive that has the capacity for more than one car, that's also a good idea. This will give you the extra space required when tradesmen or visitors call, and for further vehicles that may be owned by your household moving forward.

When you are on the lookout for a qualified block paver in Yatton, always aim to obtain at least three fully itemised estimates from different local firms. If any friends or colleagues have had a block paved drive put in recently, you could also ask them if there's anybody they're willing to recommend.

Any Yatton block paving installer worth their salt will be delighted to provide you with a completely free and in depth quote for the proposed project. Try to stay clear of chancers who say that they "just happen to be working locally on another job." Whilst they could be genuine, there are hundreds of horrific stories about people receiving shoddy work, or being ashamed and out of pocket when the promised drive isn't completed.

Items that to be factored in any quotation may include:

  • Preparation of the area to be paved
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage allowances
  • Quantity, colour and style of block pavers
  • Disposal of waste materials
  • Other factors to consider

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Yatton UK (01934)

If your new block pave driveway in Yatton is is going to replace an existing driveway, it will be necessary to first lift, remove and dispose of the old construction materials. To make sure your new block paved driveway concurs with building regulations covering the damp proof course (DPC) of your property, additional excavations may also be required. New driveway installations should be at least two courses of bricks below the current damp proof course.

Yatton block paved driveways being laid on bare earth or grass, will need roughly 230mm (9 inches) of soil to be excavated and taken away. This will allow for the installation of a proper sub-base and sharp sand stratum, before the block pavers are put down.

SUB-BASE INSTALLATION

A good layer of MOT Type 1 crushed gravel and stones, covered with sharp sand, will be used to form the sub-base. A solid sub-base makes sure that the drive won't move or develop low lying spots and dips where pools can form. Firmly packed down to create a solid, sturdy and durable surface for your path, terrace or drive in Yatton, MOT Type 1 is a crushed granular aggregate, generally composed of granite or limestone.

During this phase of the installation process potential drainage issues will be sorted out. A fall or slope, will be introduced, if not already present in the lay of the land, to let water to flow off easily. Either drainage channels/grates can be installed in between your dwelling and the driveway for steering away this water, or it can just be redirected away from the house by the slope.

Sharp sand is shovelled onto the firmly compacted sub-base Type 1 aggregate and levelled off to form a base for the paving blocks to be laid into.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

Every driveway in Yatton which has a surface area in excess of 5 square metres, must include a provision for the water to drain off to a suitable permeable area close by. Planning permission from your local authorities will be needed, if this precondition can't be observed. In order to avoid local flooding, any surface water run-off from your drive cannot be diverted into the main drainage system.

As part of the installation process, a reputable block paving installation specialist in Yatton will consider your drainage requirements and take action as necessary to make certain that your new drive adheres to the legal guidelines. This could require the installation of built-in drainage channels, a SUDS compliant permeable driveway and maybe even the excavation of a dedicated soak-away area somewhere on your property.

Additional design and drainage elements may need to be considered if your property is within the legally defined limits of a conservation area. With their knowledge and experience, a trustworthy block paving installer should be able to successfully shepherd you through this process, and reach an acceptable solution.

QUANTITY, DESIGN AND COLOUR OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a range of different shapes, colours and sizes to suit any design and pattern of driveway you require. From the commonplace and ubiquitous, straight edged, rectangular or square block pavers, to the fancier, s-shape, diamond, curved and circular patterns, there will be a style which matches your needs. You can match your paving colours with the brickwork of your property, or create an attractive feature with a contrasting colour.

Tumbled Block Paving Yatton (BS49)

Older properties in Yatton might be better suited to the traditional style of block pavers, often referred to as tumbled pavers, which produce a more sympathetic and seamless result. Pre-faded during manufacture and having a reclaimed and time-worn appearance, tumbled pavers give the impression that they have been there for ever. You can also obtain contemporary pavers if you're wanting to create a more modern look, and a high-gloss finish is even possible by applying a suitable sealant.

Your new block paved driveway in Yatton could be designed as a basic oblong or square shape, or it could snake its way around other existing features of your garden. The laying of block paving can be completed in a number of patterns to create different effects; Basketweave, Stretcher Bond and Herringbone are the 3 most common designs. An experienced block paving company in Yatton will be able to provide a quality drive that looks awesome, whatever pattern or design you prefer.

The installation of a suitable block paving edging should also be something to look into. To find out the benefits of raised edging, different shapes or colours, or when your driveway is bounded by walls, whether it in fact needs edging at all, you can chat with your block paving contractor.

DISPOSAL OF WASTE AND SOIL

Charges for the removal of waste and the proper method of its disposal should all be included in any block paving installation quotation. The overall size of your new drive will determine the amount of waste materials and earth that must be disposed of. Unless you can utilise the topsoil in other sections of your garden, it will have to be shifted by truck. Soil and associated materials that have been excavated must be disposed of in a responsible, eco-friendly manner at a registered site.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

Nearly all block paving installers in Yatton will urge you to seal your new drive after installation, although this is not at all essential. Sealing a block paved driveway will help protect your drive from staining, inhibits the growth of weed and algae, stops fading and lengthens the lifespan of your drive. A coating of sealant is an excellent way to protect the considerable investment that you have made in your block paving drive.

Sealers should never be put on a newly installed driveway as jointing and sand needs to settle properly for a while. It is best to use a specialist for the sealant application, as errors are tricky to rectify, and it is recommended that you wait at least 6 months prior to doing it.

CONCLUSION

Aside from gaining a useful facility, and increasing the value of your property, you can truly transform the look of your house with a new block paved drive or patio. It can create a splendid area to enjoy a durable seating and barbecue area in your back garden, or provide a hard wearing and stable area for safely parking your vehicles.
