Cobblelock paving installation
Cobblelock is commonly used for driveways and also less commonly for patios and paths. It is lay on sand, and the narrow joints are filled with a thin sand called silica sand. This sand prevents weeds from growing in the joints and also helps the paving blocks to be more stable and prevents them from moving.
Firstly the preparation stage for cobblelock is similar to all other types of paving. Following a careful survey of the ground, we dig the ground to the required depth. We install drainage as necessary. Then we lay our 804 hardcore layer and compact it very well using a heavy duty plate compactor. Then we spread our sand layer and level it to a smooth level ready for the cobblelock to be installed.
We lay the cobblelock in your chosen design. This could include laying the block paving at 90 or 45 degrees to your house or entrance, circle designs, diamond designs, and borders. We usually lay all the full cobbles first, followed by the cut paving blocks. Once they are all lay and cut in then we spread our silica sand, brushing it carefully into all joints. We then compact the paving using the plate compactor one final time to ensure theyre all level and solid.
