When deciding on block paving you need to be aware how important you sub base is. Think about your house itself. It must be built on sound foundations to last, and the same is true for your driveway or patio. In order to ensure that our project will last and retain both its aesthetics and safe, level surface, the appropriate sub-base must be selected and installed correctly.
The sub-base is typically compacted stone aggregate, laid on the subgrade (earth) that will support the paving products you have chosen to install. It is the main load-bearing layer for your driveway or patio and its role is to spread this load and support the products evenly over the subgrade.
Illustrated here is a typical example of how your sub-base will be made up. The actual products and depths selected will change dependent upon the products you have selected for installation.
Remember, the sub-base is integral to structure and performance of the driveway and can often take up to 80% of the total project cost. Therefore, choosing the best possible product will not add significantly to the overall cost.
