What Are Block Paving Driveways?

Block paving driveways are comprised of individual bricks or blocks which our specialists lay in a specific pattern. Blocks can be made of natural stone, concrete or clay and are available in various shapes, sizes and colours. 

Blocks are laid on top of a durable base layer and are held together with sand to create a strong and stable surface. Laying the blocks this way creates hard-wearing driveways resistant to wear and tear and can withstand heavy foot traffic and vehicles without becoming damaged or cracked.

What Are The Benefits of Block Paving Driveways?

These types of driveways offer numerous benefits, one of the main ones being their durability. We create high-quality installations designed to last for decades, even with constant use by heavy vehicles. Block paving driveways are much less likely to suffer from degradation and cracking than other materials.

We recommend these new driveways for customers in Dartford and Maidstone looking for a low-maintenance solution. Block paving driveways only require occasional cleaning and weed removal. They are convenient for those with busy schedules or who cannot carry out regular, laborious maintenance. 

These driveways are also versatile and can suit both modern and traditional properties. With a range of colours and patterns available, our team can create a unique aesthetic for your driveway. We can also create a cohesive flow throughout properties by using the blocks to lay matching patios and borders.

What Are The Key Considerations?

The size and shape of your driveway as well as any patterns you want, are key considerations when choosing the material for your new driveway. Choosing the right type of block paving for your needs will also impact the success of your new installation. Our team are happy to advise on all of the materials and types of block paving available to create new driveways in and around Maidstone and Dartford.
