Block and Cobble Paving

The most popular and effective way to transform the front of your home and existing driveway is using block or cobble paving. At R.L Groundworks, we only provide the finest quality materials which ensure your driveway stays looking its best for years to come. These materials are created with durability and strength in mind, whilst we also believe that it is equally important to have a solid and strong foundation. We excavate your driveway to an appropriate depth dependant on your requirements and chosen materials, before supplying hardcore as the base layer. All edging blocks will be set in place with concrete and weed prevention sheeting is provided. This, combined with sufficient excavation, your new driveway is unlikely to grow weeds and sink! Sand is then used as a bedding layer throughout the rest of your driveway before the block paving is laid. Once the block paving is laid, sand is brushed between the joints and it is whacked in order to compact all layers sufficiently. This, again, will prevent the sinking of your driveway for years!

Block and cobble paving is also popular amongst patios and paths, therefore is an all-round multi-purpose material designed to simply transform the outside of your home.

The hardest decision you will have to make is which material you would like to use. We believe every single material we supply is built for purpose, therefore although we can offer our advice; your choice will be influenced on budget and your own individual style! Below are the names and some images of block and cobble paving we provide.
