Choosing your block paving

When looking at garden, patio and driveway paving, block paving can be laid in a variety of patterns to create a simple or stunning driveway designs. At DBO Contractors the block paving specialists in Suffolk, we have a wide variety of designs are available, with a wealth of patterns and colours to choose from, including; random course, stretcher bond, herringbone to name a few.

Random course driveway block paving designs use different sizes of blocks laid at random. Stretcher bond is the simplest offset block paving pattern design. The joints are offset by exactly half the width of the block. Herringbone is an interlocking laying pattern which is used mainly for trafficked areas such as driveways. The interlock ensures that where vehicles are breaking and turning, blocks are not moved out of position. Common designs are 45° and 90° herringbone.
