The benefits of paving
Paving refers to laying a flat surface with bricks, stones, concrete or other materials. Paving is often used to create pathways, patios, driveways and outdoor living areas.
There are many benefits of paving, including:
– Paving can increase the value of your property.
– Paving can provide a low-maintenance surface that is easy to clean and care for.
– Paving can create a unique look for your home or business.
– Paving is durable and long-lasting.
How to pave

– Measure the area you want to pave.
– Mark out the area with string or chalk.
– Excavate the area to a depth of around 15cm.
– Compact the soil with a tamper.
– Add a layer of gravel and compact it.
– Add your paving stones or bricks, starting at one end and working along in a straight line.
– Use a level to make sure the stones are even.
– Fill any gaps between the stones with sand or mortar.
– Compact the paving with a tamper.
– Add a finishing touch by edging the paving with bricks, stones or timber.
Costs and considerations
Regarding the cost of paving, it is essential to factor in the price of materials as well as the cost of labour. If you are doing the job yourself, you will need to factor in the cost of renting or purchasing equipment. It is also essential to consider how much maintenance the paved area will require. A gravel driveway, for example, will require regular raking, whereas a concrete driveway will require very little maintenance.
When choosing a suitable paving material, there are a few things to consider. The climate is essential as some materials are more durable in certain conditions than others. For example, concrete is a good choice for areas that experience extreme temperatures as it does not crack in the heat or freeze in the cold. The cost is also essential as some materials, such as asphalt, can be pretty expensive.
It is also essential to consider how much maintenance the paved area will require. A gravel driveway, for example, will require regular raking, whereas a concrete driveway will require very little maintenance.
Another factor to consider is the appearance of the paving material. Some materials, such as brick pavers, can be pretty stylish and add curb appeal to a home.
Some common questions we get on paving are;
How long will my asphalt driveway last?
Asphalt driveways typically last 20-30 years. However, the lifespan of your driveway depends on several factors, such as the amount of traffic it receives, the climate, and how well it is maintained.
Can I pave over an existing concrete or asphalt driveway?
In most cases, yes. However, it is always best to consult with a professional paving contractor to ensure that your existing driveway is in good enough condition to pave over.
How much does it cost to pave a driveway?
The cost of paving a driveway varies depending on the size of the driveway, the type of material used, and the project’s complexity.
How do I choose the right paving contractor?
When choosing a paving contractor, it is essential to research and select a company with experience and a good reputation.
