Paving...The Obvious Choice
Patio, Driveway and Pathway paving is fundamentally a great idea for many reasons. A professionally paved area will add value to the property as well as improve appearance. As there are many styles of paving this type of exterior improvement will complement both tradtional and contempary architecture. Professionally laid paving will prove to be both durable and easy to maintain.

Interlocking blocks of stone have been used to build road surfaces for centuries, with some Roman roads surviving intact to this day. Since the 1970s, this time proven technique for building hard wearing surfaces has enjoyed a revival in the UK, where it is now commonly used on house driveways and paths.Natural stone paving such as granite setts or Pennine grit blocks and cobbles are extremely hard wearing � salvaged setts are widely available from reclamation yards � but are an expensive option at several times the prices of concrete. Consequently, they are not widely used in new homes.
Pattern and Colour: When selecting colours for drives, the architecture of the house and its surroundings should be taken into consideration. If you cannot match the tone of the materials used on the house with the blocks, a complete contrast can also work well. Alternatively, some blocks are multi-coloured or brindle which makes matching easier. When paving a patio or path, a much wider choice of patterns can be considered such as mosaics, overlapping fans and swirls and curved and circular styles. Pattern books are available from suppliers and installers.
Amongst the alternatives to block paving is �pattern imprinted concrete� which mimics the appearance of individual pavers by colouring and imprinting ready mixed concrete. This is quite an involved art and is best left to specialist contractors.
