Driveways, paths and patios are an essential part of most properties and this comprehensive book provides a detailed explanation of exactly how they are designed, planned and constructed. The features of this book are: discusses the design of driveways, paths and patios with reference to their planned use, style, size, gradients and special features such as steps, ramps and terraces; considers the range of materials available including block paving, flags, slabs, setts, cubes, cobbles, loose aggregates, plain and patterned concrete and tarmac; analyses how to estimate costs and making the choice between the DIY approach and using a professional contractor; examines the critical issue of drainage; lays bare the mathematics associated with accurate setting-out and levelling; describes the range of tools and equipment needed; details the correct constructions of kerbs and edging and laying methods for flags, block paving; and much more.
