AM Patio & Driveways Ltd - Block Paving Specialists


For pathways, block paving is an excellent choice.

Circular designs and swirl designs will normally be of limited availability for use with pathways, but the choice of colours is vast and you can still create something seriously distinctive. Whilst maintenance for block paved pathways is low you’ll find over time that moss and weeds will grow between the bricks. 

However, this can be dealt with in a matter of seconds. With paving stone pathways, you increase the chances of weeds and you also run the risk of them cracking if a lot of pressure is applied. Block paved pathways are a lot more durable and hard wearing and the smaller sized stone supplies a much better support structure. Because block paving sections are so small, you can create curved pathway designs without any difficulty so you can have them going through your garden, at the front of your home or you could even have them to connect your driveway to your home.



Block paving in Blackpool.

Long lasting, durable material for driveways.

The stones themselves have plenty of grip and this is ideal for when it comes to winter. Block paved driveways don’t get slippery when wet and vehicle weight won’t crack the stones. Some people think paving slabs is a good option for a driveway, but this is rarely recommended – flags can and do crack much easier than block paving and flagging doesn’t stand up to weight very well and can lift. Block paving however doesn’t present you with such problems, and you will also find that it can support large vehicles as well. Many people go for block paving in Blackpool because it comes in a huge range of design varieties, in addition to its practicality.


For patio surfacing, block paving is possibly the best option available.

Many people opt for wooden decking for their outdoor patio areas but decking has a number of drawbacks when when compared to block paving. Wood can rot with time, and it can be susceptible to mites and other insect infestations. With block paved patios in Blackpool, the only maintenance required is the little moss which may grow between the cracks, other than this a block paved patio is virtually maintenance free. Block paving is a good choice for those who want a low maintenance solution for their outdoor flooring.
