Block Paving in Barnet

Block paving can look good as a driveway. It is a stylish and functional solution to your driveway and can give your home great kerb appeal. Whether you want a classic herringbone design or something a bit different, there are plenty of block paving materials and options available to you. The bricks found in block paving are mostly manufactured from clay, but some are made of different composite materials. Among the main benefits to block paving is that if a few of the bricks get broken over time, they can be replaced easily. It also means that it's easier to carry out work under the top of paving without leaving a mark. The most frequent pattern that driveway companies lay is the herringbone pattern since it has the strongest interlock, rendering it a fantastic choice for driveways. The tradesperson creates the herringbone pattern by setting the blocks at 45 degrees or 90 degrees to the perpendicular. Both types of herringbone design create a stylish and appealing look for your driveway that can make your home look fantastic to buyers.

how to lay block paving on a slope?

Are you worried there’s a slope on the area where your block paving is to be installed? Good news is, it’s very possible to lay block paving on a slope. However, this can be a very difficult task which should be done by a reliable professional ( especially if you lack proper training and experience) who can guarantee the best results, the first time and also help save you money from possible costly mistakes. This guide will provide you with everything you need about the slope block paving installation process. Let’s have a look!

• Demarcate The Walkway

To get started, you have to determine how and where you want your walkway to be while also determining the thickness of the paver. Ensure to choose the less sloppy area and utilize landscape paint to mark the area visibly.

• Prepare The Ground

Clear out all forms of dirts, roots, rocks and other debris on the soil. Once done, proceed to cutting the sods to the required length and put them somewhere close.

• Make Boundaries

There’s a need for landscape borders. Here, it’ll be easier to use plastics as boundaries for your lawn’s edges. Install them on the sides that have already been cut

• Apply A Level Of Gravel

Obtain the correct size of gravel and spread them evenly over the area to ensure a firm foundation for the pavers is formed. Makes sure that the rocks is at a minimum of 2 inches deep into the soil.

• Install The Block Pavers

Start from the centremost position of the pathway and work towards the sides until you’re able to cover every inch of the area.

• Apply A Layer Of Cement

Apply cement over the pavers and utilize a broom to sweep it and fill up all the gaps and spaces between the pavers. Then, press the pathway to be levelled using a compactor.

Do I need to be at home when my driveway is being worked on?

Your contractor should have access to your driveway and a power source. If they have these things, you don’t need to be there while they’re working on your driveway. However, it’s worth being around if you can so you can clarify details and answer any questions.

When's the best time to get driveway work done?

Driveway work is usually done in the warmer half of the year. This is partly to avoid bad weather. If you want to get ahead and avoid waiting for a contractor to be free, you should try getting in touch with a professional in the early spring so a date can be booked for install as soon as practically possible.
