What is the process?

Behind the Scenes: Installing Your Driveway

Step 1: Initial Consultation and Design

At Fangorn Landscapes, our process begins with a detailed consultation where we discuss your preferences and requirements for your new driveway. We’ll measure the area to be paved and take note of any specific features or challenges. Together, we’ll create a design that maximizes space and enhances the overall aesthetics of your property.

Step 2: Site Preparation

Once the design is finalised, we’ll start preparing the site for installation. Using the measurements taken during the consultation, we’ll mark out the area to be excavated. Typically, a block paving driveway requires a depth of around 200mm (8 inches) to accommodate the sub-base and paving blocks.

Step 3: Excavation and Sub-base Installation

Our team will excavate the marked area to the required depth, ensuring a uniform surface across the entire driveway. The excavated soil will be removed from the site, and a layer of hardcore material will be laid to a depth of approximately 150mm (6 inches). This sub-base will be compacted thoroughly to provide a stable foundation for the paving.

Step 4: Edge Restraints and Bedding Layer

Next, we’ll install edge restraints along the perimeter of the driveway to hold the paving blocks in place. These restraints are typically made of concrete or metal and help to prevent the blocks from shifting over time. Once the edge restraints are in place, a layer of sharp sand will be spread evenly over the compacted sub-base to create a bedding layer for the paving blocks.

Step 5: Block Paving Installation

Using the measurements from the design phase, our team will begin laying the paving blocks in the desired pattern. We’ll ensure precise alignment and spacing between the blocks to achieve a professional finish. Depending on the design, we may need to cut some blocks to fit around edges or curves, maintaining consistency and visual appeal throughout the driveway.

Step 6: Cutting and Finishing

As we progress with the installation, any necessary cuts and adjustments will be made to ensure a neat and uniform finish. This may involve cutting blocks to fit within the designated area or around existing features on your property. We’ll pay close attention to detail to ensure that every aspect of your driveway meets our high standards of quality and craftsmanship.

Step 7: Jointing and Compaction

Once all the blocks are laid, jointing sand will be brushed into the gaps between them to lock them in place and prevent movement. Excess sand will be swept away, and the entire surface will be compacted using a vibrating plate compactor to settle the blocks into the bedding layer.

Step 8: Final Inspection

A thorough inspection will be conducted to ensure that your new block paving driveway meets our stringent quality standards. We’ll provide you with care and maintenance instructions to help you keep your driveway looking its best for years to come.

At Fangorn Landscapes, we’re dedicated to delivering exceptional results and exceeding your expectations every step of the way. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and begin the journey toward transforming your property with a beautiful block paving driveway.
