Woodland Paving lay driveways, patios and paths using blocks, gravel and natural stone. We provide quality workmanship that will last – block paving, granite, gravel, natural slabs, patio slabs, slate, drainage, edging, walling and lighting. Landscaping facilities include real or artificial turfing, sleepers, shed slabs, decking and fencing.
We dig deeper – 250mm rather than the usual 200m. Then we lay a membrane to help prevent shifting or sinking. On top of this we place then pack down 150mm of Ministry of Transport type 1 sub-base – which is the material used for road foundations, 50% deeper than the industry standard. Next goes down 50mm of sharp sand packed down and levelled – which acts as a shock absorber.
Our 60mm blocks are then laid – these are 20% thicker than most. All free edges are set on a concrete base then finally we brush fine kiln dried sand between the blocks to complete a solid drive.
We dig 150mm, lay a membrane to help prevent shifting and sinking. Then we put down 75mm of Ministry of Transport type 1 sub-base.
Slabs are then laid on mortar or a screed of sand and cement – depending on the type of slabs – then pointed with mortar. If blocks are your choice, then 50mm of sharp sand plus the blocks go on top of the sub-base.
We supply and fit garden landscaping which includes turfing, sleepers, shed slabs, bedding/retaining walls, decking, fencing. Gardening works including planting, rockery/water features and soft landscaping are all provided.
“I have seen many driveways in the Romford/Hornchurch area and was sceptical about getting the right firm for the job. I spent many hours on the net and decided to use Woodland. Hornchurch. I made the right choice. A competitive price within the range I expected. This firm does not just employ craftsmen, they are artisans of the highest standard. The team were polite and clean workers. They followed my ideas on what I wanted and discussed pros and cons and I changed my mind and they didn’t even bat an eyelid and did what I wanted. Compared to my neighbours drive, well I’m lost for words, theirs looks like something thrown together. If you want proof come and look at mine and compare. I’m sure Woodland would give you my address. I am more than happy with the work carried out; and glad I chose them”. Leslie Montague-Nahla, Romford
