Block Paving & Gravel Driveways

Primary image

Bearing the demands of everyday life yet showcasing your property to the world, your driveway needs to be both durable and stylish. We understand this balance and create driveways that boast high workmanship from the depth of their foundation to the fit and finish of the landscaping.

Meeting Your Needs

We ensure that the landscaping of the entrance of your property meets the right needs, whether that might be creating space for parking or space for family life. You may want to find a balance between soft and hard landscaping and we can help you plan and design to meet your aesthetic and practical considerations.

Paving Choices

We specialise in all of the following hard landscaping options:

Block Paving

Block paving is a popular choice for property entrances. We can install a number of different types of block paving including concrete, clay and permeable. See the gallery opposite for a showcase of our block paving work.

Block paving may also be used in gardens and other areas if desired. See the gallery in Patios and Terraces to see an example of a use in this context.


We offer a number of gravel options for both traditional and modern settings, including stabilised and resin-bound gravel. See the Gravel Driveways page for full details.

Permeable Paving

Permeable paving has become increasingly in demand due in part to legislation and a growing concern for the environment. We offer a number of block paving and gravel options. Read more about permeable paving, its benefits, and if this is something that would interest you.

Other Paving

We can also create Tarmac and natural stone property entrances.

Well Thought-Out

Each job we start is done with your needs in mind. For example, one customer had a driveway leading on to a busy main road, where pulling out is very difficult.

On assessing their land, we built a turning point into their existing driveway, allowing easy turning. We used existing bricks, cleaned them and layed new edge restraint.

The photo inset shows the job in progress. One can see how the original entrance was adapted from the former shape to include a new turning point.

To see further examples of our work, view the gallery to the right.

Laying the Right Foundations

Your driveway should be built to support the demands of human and vehicular traffic for many years to come. We have seen too often the result of cowboys where hasily laid bricks have lead quickly to subsidence and dismay.

It is highly important to install paving upon a strong, well established foundation. We lay our sub base according to high standards and the results pay – we can offer up to a 10 year guarantee. See more about how we lay the foundations.

We are experts at installing quality driveways and take great pride in every aspect of the project from initial survey to completion.
