Here are some answers to common questions we get asked about our patio, driveway and landscaping services.

We would like a new driveway installed. What are the options we can go for?

Here is a list of paving options for you to choose from:

  • Block Paving
  • Resin Bound
  • Imprinted Concrete
  • Tarmac
  • Concrete

Once installed, how long do we have to wait until we can drive on our new driveway?

We would ask you not to drive on your new driveway for 24 hours. However, you can walk on it after 4 hours.

Do we get to choose what colour block paving we can have, or do you choose that?

The choice is completely yours. We can show you a wide range of coloured blocks that come in different shape and sizes. Each can be laid in the pattern of your choice making your new driveway unique.

What is Resin?

Resin is made up from aggregates, stones and pebbles which are bound together with resin. We use it to create lovely driveways and garden paths for our customers in Colchester, Braintree and Chelmsford.

What are the benefits to having an imprinted concrete driveway?

There are many benefits. Imprinted concrete does not crack if installed properly. It is permeable so no additional drainage is required. You can choose the pattern of your choice making your driveway unique.

Can you give me a quote to have my garden landscaped?

Yes, we can offer you a free no obligation quote once we have assessed your garden and you have told us exactly what you want us to do. We can offer you expert advice on all of our landscaping services including garden design, garden maintenance and our tree services.

Do you work at the weekend?

Yes, we do work at the weekends especially when we have a gardening project to complete.

Are all you groundwork services guaranteed?

Yes, all of our groundwork services are guaranteed and fully insured.

Will I need to hire a skip or can you take care of that?

You will not need to hire a skip or dispose of any rubbish and materials. Pro Pavers will see to all of that for you.

Is it possible to see some of the driveways you have installed?

Yes, if you live in Colchester, Braintree or Chelmsford then you can see some of the driveways we have installed. You can also check out our other work here on our project page.

Could I lay tarmac myself?

Our tarmac experts wouldn’t recommend it. Pro Pavers have been laying tarmac driveways for many years and know how difficult it can be if you do not have the proper machinery or materials. So, we would love to offer you our tarmac services and complete your tarmac project for you.

We have an area in our garden that is in need of a makeover, what would you recommend?

We could either install some timber decking on this area or maybe a patio using sandstone, slate or granite paving slabs. We love transforming unused areas, giving our clients somewhere lovely to sit in their back gardens.
