Driveway Ground Preparation
Ground preparation is the most important part of any paving project. If the installation of the driveway is carried out without the ground being prepared properly, there will most certainly be future problems. That's why here at Surrey Paving we adhere to the correct procedures laid out by the British regulations. They are as follows:
Firstly the area must be excavated to a suitable depth. The depth depends on ground conditions however must be at least 250mm from the finished level. Any soft spots must be excavated to good ground.
The sub soil needs to be compacted at this point. A geo textile membrane is installed next.
Edge restraints are then installed on a concrete bed with adequate haunching.
Any drainage which is needed should be installed at this point.
There must be at least 150mm of compacted M.O.T road stone installed, and it should be compacted in two increments of 75mm.
We now install a sharp sand bed (not soft sand), screeded to a level depth of 30mm (tolerance +10mm -5mm) for which the block paving will be installed. In order to ensure consistent colour distribution, blocks will be selected from a minimum of three packs.
Kiln dried sand will now be brushed into the joints and the finished paved surface will be sufficiently compacted to ensure all joints are completely filled. A neoprene mat will be used on the underside of the compacter plate to prevent damage to the blocks.
