Added to the above. A minimum excavation should be 230mm followed by laying a geotextile membrane. Type 1 stone should then be laid and compacted in two even layers. Blocks should be laid on a 25 to 30mm layer of screened compacted sharp sand or grit.

Block laid, kiln dry sand laid then compacted.

The excavation depth for a typical domestic driveway is 250mm below finished paving level, based on -150mm sub-base, 40mm sand bed and 50mm block. All to be compacted and kiln sanded
