Paving East Rand areas
We carry out paving with the emphasis on quality, design and customer satisfaction. We are able to assist you with the design of your drive or garden project, advice on the options available and suggest suitable materials that will compliment and enhance your property.
Paving creates a flatter feel to an area, and optimises the space that is available, often creating larger effects to areas such as patios.
Make A Statement With Brick Pavers.
Just as your home makes a statement about who you are and what you value, so do the patios, walkways and driveways that connect your home to the outside world.
They deserve the same attention to detail as does the home itself. Perhaps the most important decision you will make in planning your home’s paved venues is the selection of the right paving product.
Brick pavers, that is genuine clay paving bricks, have a timeless appeal that imparts an image of classic elegance to homes of any style — from traditional to ultra-modern.
What are some of the benefits of choosing Brick Pavers over Stamped Concrete?
With Brick Paving you can choose your colour and know what the final product will be. With Stamped Concrete there are many things that could factor into your final results such as the powdered dye and the concrete not being thoroughly mixed together.
It is also possible to get a bad batch of concrete which would result in discoloured pavement. With Brick Paving you can always get a perfect match even many years later if you decide to add to your existing project. With Stamped Concrete matches are impossible.
With Brick Pavers if it is necessary you have a product that is repairable without noticing any repairs were made. With Stamped Concrete there are no guarantees and once that cement cracks there are no repair methods.
With Brick Pavers when creating elevated patios you will have a beautiful border contrasting with a natural stone or block retaining wall. With Stamped Concrete you will have a cement face that is prepared to look like block.
With Brick Pavers you will have a product that is more durable and flexible than any other product because they are small individual pieces enabling them to be able to move with the climate unlike Stamped Concrete which is poured in big slabs which poses a problem when the frost gets underneath and shifts the concrete causing it to buckle and crack.
What are Retaining Walls used for?
Retaining walls are used widely in the landscaping industry. There are a variety of materials that retaining walls can be made from, such as brick, stone, rock, concrete, wood, steel, reinforced soil. There are also different methods of structuring, for example; monolithic, rigid and poured concrete walls.
Retaining Wall Design
Retaining walls are used to give support to vertical sloping land. By installing retaining walls, such sloping land can be levelled and hence be of greater use. Plants, trees and gardens can be incorporated, to once useless land.
Retaining walls also have a less functional use, which is a visual or decorative purpose. Retaining walls can be used in the garden to add to the landscaping design, such as surrounding flower beds or to accentuate feature gardens.
With the use of coloured bricks and pavers, decorative stones and various timbers, retaining walls can add that aesthetic appeal to the garden grounds.
Retaining walls are also used for the construction of highway walls, parking lots, erosion walls and bridges
