If you have design aspirations for a new driveway or maybe a garden patio, there’s a good chance you’ve already given some thought to block paving as a surfacing material. P.L. Fencing & Landscaping has experience in this sought-after decorative material. The key benefit of block paving is easy replacement, one brick at a time, should it ever suffer damage, or fast uplifting should anybody need to access underground utilities.
Our landscaping company has already undertaken numerous block paving installations in Southend, Westcliff-on-Sea, Leigh-on-Sea and locations along the length of the Essex coast.
Made from concrete, clay or composites, like crushed glass and rubble, block pavers are porous. We can lay them in a variety of different ways, the most popular of which is a pattern called Herringbone. This style offers a strong bond thanks to the interlocking design of the product itself. You can see block paving across many parts of Essex, usually on pathways and walkways, road surfaces and pedestrianised areas.
Our landscaping company uses pavers to create new driveways and garden patios with their own unique style.
The benefits of block paving include:
Always use an experienced landscaping company for block paving installations. Reputable installers know how to interlock the individual bricks correctly. Some companies in the Southend, Leigh-on-Sea and Essex areas might promise installations of a good quality but will they be able to lay new driveways or garden patios in the design you want, or in colours and shades which tie in well with your property and its surroundings?
P.L. Fencing & Landscaping can. We guarantee our block paving for 12 months and provide a manufacturer warranty.
We take care with the sub-base, working to recommended depths and using quality aggregates for a more stable surface that absorbs the weight of parked cars and foot traffic. P.L. Fencing & Landscaping can clear land, excavate, eliminate soft spots, edge out the installation, compact the ground, add a layer of sharp sand and lay block paving in the agreed design.
Throughout the installation, we use string lines and screed rails to ensure an even surface with good water runoff.
The team at our garden fencing and landscaping company always uses pavers from different packs to ensure a good spread of shades. This means that the installation won’t have noticeably different patches of colour. Variety in colour, shape and size makes it possible for our landscaping company to provide the customer with an endless choice of designs. We will always advise you well on choosing colours to match your landscape.
After laying new driveways and garden patios in block paving, we brush kiln-dried sand into the joins and compact the pavers again to strengthen the interlocking structure.
