Block Paving Driveways offer a wide range of colours and designs... 

Block paving is a versatile and cost effective driveway solution. As well as a range of colours, the following types of blocks can be laid:

  • Driveway paving
  • Cobble stones
  • Retro style paving

During your site survey we can discuss the design, any drainage that will be required for natural water run off and features that you may require such as kerbs and edgings.

Using different coloured blocks, an eye catching finish can be obtained that will provide a long lasting finish.

Block paving is a permeable surface and therefore required no planning permission in front gardens. Please check further down the page for more details.

Very impressed with the landscaping job that Bobby, Harry and Dom did on our front and back patio. They really listened to and took on board our ideas and have improved the garden immeasurably. Good attention to detail, hard working and professional throughout. Fair price agreed with Tom, who was also a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend and would use again

Tom and the team did a great job at a good price. They were very quick to do the fence repair and it was completed to a very high standard. I was so pleased I got them back a week later to replace more panels.

We contacted Chelmsford Fencing last Wed as during high winds it took posts and panels down, they were very quick with turning up at my address, they gave me 3 quotes and they turned up on Mon 20th Jan to fit new fencing. I'm really impressed with every aspect of the job that was done, I'd happily recommend or use them again

Everything You Need to Know

Typically, block paving driveways are installed as follows:

  • Levelled out subbase (after excavation)
  • 150mm layer of type one hardcore
  • 30mm layer of sharp sand (laying course)
  • Blocks with kiln-dried jointing sand swept over the top

We also use geo-textile membrane to keep the layers separated while allowing water to pass through.

Planning Permission Block Paving

You will not need planning permission if:

  • It is a replacement driveway
  • The surface is permeable (block paving is permeable) or naturally drains to the lawn or a border with natural drainage.

For more information check the government website for Permeable surfacing of front gardens.
