Laying & Design Patterns for Driveway paving

Laying & Design Patterns for Driveway paving

As with garden and patio paving, block paving and setts can be laid in a variety of patterns to create simple or stunning driveway designs. Depending on the driveway product, a wide variety of designs are available, again the greater the number of block sizes used in the design, the greater the number of laying patterns there are to choose from.

All Marshalls block paving laying patterns are categorised into 4 groups, as defined by the filters below. These include random course, stretcher bond, herringbone and other, which includes circles and octants.

Random course driveway block paving designs use different sizes of blocks laid at random. However, it is important to avoid cross joints which can draw the eye to a specific point in the design. Marshalls Drivesett Savanna block paving is ideally suited to this type of driveway pattern.

Stretcher bond is the simplest offset block paving pattern and is also known as a running bond or half bond. The joints are offset by exactly half the width of the block.

Herringbone is an interlocking laying pattern which is used for all trafficked areas such as driveways. The interlock ensures that where vehicles are braking and turning, blocks are not moved out of position. Common designs are 45° and 90° herringbone, utilising block paving products such as Marshalls Driveline 50.
