An example of our method of block driveway

The groundwork and base are the most important part of your driveway ensuring that it remains
robust and durable over many years.  R & C Landscapes Ltd ensure that your driveway will be excavated to a minimum of 250mm below finished level.  A crushed concrete sub-base will then be installed.  This will then be topped with a 50mm cover of lean mix.  This is thoroughly compacted at all stages to ensure a solid base.

Drainage Solutions

Drainage will then be installed in accordance with local authority guidelines.  Next will be the perimeter edging, supported with a cement haunching.  Following on from this the main area of blocks can be laid upon 25mm of compacted sand and cement, fully compacted with a final layer of sharp sand.The blocks are then laid and cut as appropriate.  Kiln dried sand is brushed over the surface and the paviors are given a final compaction with a vibrating plate.

We are a big fan of Marshalls products and have been installing them for many years. Check out our
