Standard block paving is laid in a herringbone pattern whilst cobble stones and Tegula paving is laid in 1 to 3 different sizes to create an offset pattern. You can enhance these patterns even further by putting in a block paving circle or diamond pattern into your driveway.

If you are thinking of opting for an inset paved pattern, we recommend choosing colour that is matching your border. Borders done with block paving are commonly done in a contrasting colour to the main paving to help the patterns and design choices stand out even more.

Excellent patio laid, 60 square meters all done within 4 days. Made to my design and happy to adjust if needed. Sometimes 6 workmen on site and all worked hard. I would use them again.

I spoke with the owner Pat who came out and offered his professional advice on how my patio would look and he wasn’t far off from what I was going to request. I would recommend this company not only for the professional work but commitment, polite staff and of course the end product!!.

Standard driveway paving is laid in a herringbone pattern which we build using the Marshalls Driveline range. There are other paving manufacturers available but the Marshalls range is the most commonly used and as such has a guaranteed quality to it.

We always try to draw from multiple packs of block paving if its a larger driveway to ensure the colour spread is balanced. This is not as important with a basic colour but autumn mix and brindle coloured blocks can vary from batch to batch.

If you want to give more definition to your driveway block paving, we recommend having a block paving kerb laid around your driveway. You have options on a bull nosed paving kerb and a sloped style. You can also choose to bury the kerb so the waterline (edge of slope/bull nose) runs flush with the driveway paving finish.

Tegula paving is another very common style of paving in Banbury which is laid using 1 to 3 sizes in an offset pattern. You can read more about paving patterns below.

If you like the single styled pattern, we recommend the larger size. it can be laid offset to each other or you can lay a larger size in a herringbone pattern. This can be quite an unique style driveway and will definitely enhance the entrance to your home.

If you want the full effect of Tegula paving, we recommend using the 3 different sizes and choosing the tumbled variant of the Tegula paving. Most common colours used with this style is natural grey and a charcoal border.

If your driveway suffers from water problems, can become flooded during the year or you have problems with SUDS regulations, you should consider permeable block paving.

Available in nearly all the same styles of Tegula paving and driveway block paving with the only difference being the more pronounced edging on it.

The reason for the edging of it is that fine grit is used for jointing instead of kiln dried sand. If you have water problems, kiln dried sand will get flushed out. The fine grit does not have this problem and allows water to soak down through it quick and efficiently.

The biggest difference with these choices is the preparation. The preparation for permeable paving on your driveway involves dropping the levels significantly deeper to allow the water to drain down through the sub base. We recommend a Type 4 MOT hardcore as a base for a permeable driveway.
