Block Paving Driveways

Whilst other forms of driveway are functional, there is no better method than block paving for being both durable and the most aesthetically pleasing option. With various intricate & unique designs possible, our expert team can create beautiful & long lasting patterns that will enhance the look of your home instantly.

With your driveway typically being at the front of your home, it is often people’s first impression of your property which is why it can be important to have a beautifully designed driveway. If you’re looking for a traditional, heritage style aesthetic, the cobble stone & Sett variations are perfect for producing a rustic look. However, for a much more modern and contemporary design to complement your property our concrete slabs can be placed to create any design type you require.

Pur clay pavers create a much more traditional driveway aesthetic, creating a brick red aesthetic to blend in with your neighbourhood perfectly.

Concrete Pavers

Concrete pavers, also known as paving stones, are a popular choice for outdoor flooring. Pavers, like tiles, come in a variety of forms, sizes, and colours and are delivered to the job site ready to be installed.

Pavers are often laid on top of a compacted soil and sand base. Concrete pavers have a permeable surface that allows water to pass through because there is no grout between the seams. Our expert staff will install them so that your driveway continues to look great for many years to come.

Clay Pavers

Clay pavers are the original form of block paving, or brick paving as it was formerly known. Clay pavers offer a choice of laying technique – flexible paving or rigid paving. Clay pavers are great for creating decorative driveways as they are as durable as they are decorative. With rich brown colours and creative ways to lay them, clay paver driveways really make the driveway stand out.


A Sett, also known as a block or Belgian block, is a quarried stone that is used to pave roads and walkways. Setts were once widely used, especially on steeper roadways where they gave better grip for horses’ hooves than a smooth surface, but they are now more commonly seen as beautiful stone paving in landscape architecture.


Cobbles are big pebbles that have been polished by water over time. They are gathered on the bed streams where they can be found. Many stones are mined and shaped, whereas cobblestone is produced and shaped naturally.

Cobblestone paving will outlast nearly any other material, and it has a distinct “old world” character that can add significant charm and value to a fine home.

With some being to create decorative paths through your garden to full commercial pathways outside of office buildings and corporate properties.
