Paving

Paving has a variety of uses within your garden including paths, seating areas, terracing, and driveway surfaces.

Natural Stone paving

Paving is an attractive, low maintenance surface for paths, seating areas, terraces and driveways. There are many colours, sizes, textures, finishes and shapes  of paving slab to choose from and we can provide ideas and samples to help you choose which will work best for your garden.

Natural sandstone and blue limestone are some of our favourite paving choices offering a practical, durable finish that can transform the look and feel of your garden.

We can even find finishes that reflect interior floor surfaces to create a seamless transition from inside to outside spaces.

To ensure an even, safe and long-lasting result all our paving is laid on a compacted sub base of hardcore to a depth of at least 75mm. The paving stones are laid on a solid base of mortar with a slight fall to allow water run off. Where needed pointing to a gauge of 3:1 sand and cement is used to provide a strong bond between stones.
