Riven Paving

Riven-effect is the name given to those patio flags manufactured from cast concrete that mimics the appearance of the traditional old stone flags. There is a vast range available, and an equally massive range of quality to suit including highly accurate copies that can easily pass as genuine stone to the untrained eye. The better quality ranges come in a wide selection of plan sizes to enable traditional random layouts to be laid.

Pavers

Block Paving also known as brick paving is a commonly used decorative method of creating a pavement or hard-standing which can easily be lifted and replaced when they suffer damage or become worn.

The bricks used are typically made up from concrete or clay, and sometimes other composite materials. The concrete style blocks most commonly used are made from porous materials.

Using blocks can achieve many different laying patterns, one of the most popular is the herringbone pattern; as it offers the strongest bond due to it’s interlocking.

Used in light traffic areas it’s a great solution as a surface option for walkways and patios due to the strength of the interlocking and the ability to replace individual blocks.

Block paving is the option of choice for a surface solution due to the huge range of benefits it has, although more expensive than other options it can last longer when maintained correctly.

Patterns and Designs

There are many techniques to make these patios look even more amazing. They can be combined with paving bricks to create borders or panels of contrast and they are available in a variety of colours, of which we find the reds and buffs to be the most useful, other colours tending to look wishy-washy after a few seasons out in the British climate.

From chequerboard patterns, masonry designs, circles or more radical patterns, we can design your patio to suit your style.
