Each of our block paving set comes contains 488 units with a stone thickness of 50mm which covers 9.76m2.

To lay our blocks, vegetation and top soil should be removed to an approximate depth of 200mm-250mm across the area to be paved. 

The next stage is to set up edge restraints around the area to be paved (these may include existing walls) using block kerbs or concrete edging. 

The area should then be back filled with 150mm of MoT/crusher run, compacted to 100mm.

Onto this, a layer of slightly damp sharp sand should be applied, to the depth of 50mm, and then compacted with a plate compactor. A second layer of sharp sand is then applied, to a depth of 20mm. Using the string lines, screeding rails and straight edge, this second layer of sharp sand needs to be levelled to the correct falls.

Place the blocks on top of the laying course, ensuring they are around 4-5mm above the desired finished level. Once all full blocks are laid, use a mechanical block splitter to cut the blocks required for infill pieces or at the retaining edges. Pieces of concrete block paving smaller than one third of a full block are best avoided. Once completed, sweep the area and compact with two or three passes of the plate compactor.

Jointing of the block paving is preferably completed in dry periods. Apply kiln dried sand to the block paved area, then brush into the joints using a soft brush, ensuring the joints are filled full
