They don’t call us the groundworks specialist without good reason. When you work with DBO Contractors, you will experience the best possible level of service from a passionate, family-run team.

Block paving can be a smart way to bring a stylish design to a space that has to be hard-wearing and functional. Whether used as part of a garden design, or a driveway, our block paving is to the highest standard.
We start off by preparing the site, removing the unwanted materials from the area and taking them away. We’ll excavate down to the appropriate level and will ensure you’re notified of these key details as we go. If any softer spots are found, we’ll make sure these are secured with a sub-base material.
We’ll then lay a concrete foundation, within an edged area, to stabilise the site. Following this, a sub-base will be installed, which will be compacted using a vibrating plate.
Once this has been stabilised, we’ll start to install your paving. Starting from a right angle or straight edge, each block paving will be place 5mm proud of the top level, giving us enough room to knock it in. Paving will be laid in the desired pattern from different packs in one go, to minimise the risk of colour patching.
We’ll finish the paving by brushing kiln-dried sand into all the joints, before they’re compacted using a vibrating plate. Top sand is added and re-compacted to ensure that no joints are left unfilled.
