Paving. Paving is a stylish, low cost way to create feature or utility areas in your outdoor space. It can be used in the garden and driveways, depending on what your needs are. Because there is such a wide variety of colours, textures and formats available, pavers can create almost any type of look and are more versatile than other hard surfaces. Laid correctly, pavers can last for a lifetime and are very low maintenance. When choosing pavers for your landscaping project, take a look at your house and garden and select pavers that will tie in with the look. For example, if you have a contemporary home, large format concrete or sandstone pavers will look great. A more traditional home may benefit from classic brick paving. At Dolan Horticultural we will assist you in choosing the correct pavers for your home - a great help when you consider how much choice is available!
Strength and Patterns. As part of the garden, pavers should be at least 40mm thick and be laid on a bed that is also at least 40mm thick. If you are using pavers in your driveway, you will require stronger pavers that are laid on a bed that is at least 100mm thick. The extra thickness is required for structural integrity. Paving can be laid in several patterns including basketweave, herringbone, radial, stretcher bond, a combination of stretchers and headers and also in large paver patterns.
Materials. There is a wide array of materials available within pavers including brick, clay, terracotta, concrete (concrete can also imitate more expensive finishes such as sandstone at reduced cost), slate, timber, cut or split stone (such as granite, limestone or sandstone) and ceramic. However, no matter which material is chosen, the most important part of any paving job is preparation of the base.
Importance of a Good Base. Contacting Dolan Horticultural to complete your paving job will ensure that the base is laid correctly, ensuring the pavers will not move over time. The paving base may be either a concrete slab or compressed sand and road base. Drainage is an issue (concrete especially will not allow water through) when installing paving,
