We will visit you on-site visit to discuss your requirements and provide you with a written quotation. Although there are only three basic block laying patterns - Stretcher Bound*, Herringbone* and Basket Weave*, the random or uniform use of different block sizes within these patterns open up the design options. Their creative use can form patterns which can achieve different effects, each one unique to its own setting. We are happy to discuss with you and advise you on theses options.

Our schedule of work is clearly set out with no hidden extras, so the price you are quoted will cover the total cost of the job. We will also give you an estimate of how long the work will take to complete.

Block Paving
When you decide to use block paving, there is more involved in the design of your finished product than the colour and where you'd like to use block paving. When you choose C.A. Mills Driveways, we will help you with your design as much as possible. However to help you with your own ideas, the main elements you should consider are:
  • Thickness
    The purpose of the paving will determine what thickness you will need.

  • Texture & Type
    Our two main finishes on block paving are smooth or rumbled. It is down to personal preference which finish look you use. You can also choose between permeable and semi-porous paving blocks, in both smooth or rumbled textures.

  • Colour
    Choose of a wide variety of colours to complement or contrast with your property for maximum effect!

  • Laying Pattern*
    There are a variety of patterns that can be created depending on if you choose to use standard rectangular blocks or multi-sized pavers.

  • Accessories
    Did you know that we also supply a wide variety of accessories to complement our paving? There are of course kerbs and edging blocks, but also consider lighting.

  • Combinations
    Have you considered combining different products to create a unique effect?

* Examples of Laying Patterns:

Stretcher Bond
- a classic look that is ideal for patios and terraces.

Stretcher Bond

- recommended for drives and other large hard-standing areas.

Herringbone - 45 Degrees

- easy to lay and something different to standard designs.



Installed correctly, Tarmac is renowned for its versatility, durability and longevity, and is suitable for both driveways and forecourts. Available in both
BLACK or RED, the installation process is as follows:
  • Area to be excavated to approximately 150 200mm and all debris to be removed from site.

  • The excavated area to be compacted, digging out any soft spots and filling them with new sub-base material.

  • A Permeable Geotext Membrane will be placed over the excavated area, and backfilled with MOT (Ministry of Transport) Type 1 Roadstone, and mechanically compacted to the correct levels.

  • A Base Course of Tarmac with an aggregate size of approximately 20mm will be compacted on top of the MOT Type 1, followed by a wearing course of Tarmac which contains smaller aggregates and is intended to give a finer, smoother finish. This will all be mechanically rolled to the correct levels and falls. All Tarmac will be delivered in insulated lorries to ensure the correct temperature is maintained whilst in transit.

  • It may be necessary to install an edge restraint such as a soldier course of block paving to the entire outer perimeter, restraining the newly laid tarmac.
