MP Building & Groundworks have been laying block paving professionally since 2006 and have dealt with a number of commercial situations in that time. Block or brick paving is an attractive method of providing a pavement or hard standing area. It has the advantage over other surfaces, such as tarmac, in that individual blocks can be lifted to allow maintenance or repairs to, for example, drains to be carried out easily and without leaving any marks or unsightly areas.

Block paving has many commercial uses such as driveways, hard standing and parking areas, roadways, walkways, and pavements. There is a choice of finishes that blocks can be laid in. Most popular is probably the herringbone pattern. Other styles include stretcher bond and basket weave.

 A striking aesthetic

Block paving is a paving material that is versatile, and so can be used to create any kind of design or pattern you might want to choose. If you are after a modern, clean, and neat aesthetic – or would perhaps like something a bit more traditional and elaborate – block paving is the material that is right for you.

Driveways, courtyards, and patios can benefit from the luxurious visual appeal that block paving brings, with a countless number of colours and designs available here. When it is installed by an expert set of professionals, block paving can truly bring out the best in your home.

Whether you would like a subtle border path around the surrounding garden or a centrepiece of paving to welcome guests into your home, block paving is the way to go!

Low maintenance

Tending to your outdoor space or garden can also be incredibly time consuming, which is why block paving is so vitally useful for those of us who want an attractive, functional, and easy exterior.
