Below is a quick breakdown of the higher end type and style of driveways.
A long standing favorite with many homeowners, block paved driveways are a little more expensive than other types of driveways due to needing a sub base and blocks, you cannot put block paving on an already existing hard standing such as tarmac.
You will need to have the area excavated, then a hardcore base is put down, once this has been compacted into place a compacted sand layer is then put down, only after this can the blocks be laid, this is the reason it is more expensive.
Block paved driveways have many styles and look fantastic when installed properly, they are Suds (sustainable urban drainage systems) compliant which means surface water will drain away.

Pattern Imprinted Concrete
Another great type of driveway which is not Suds compliant, this means that when installing the pattern imprinted concrete (PIC) the area will need to drain away the surface water.
This type of driveway or patio also needs a hardcore sub base before the concrete is poured, depending on the size of the area expansion gaps will need to be positioned so the the driveway does not crack in extreme weather conditions.
They come in a variety of colours and styles and are very popular, the concrete sealer that is put down after installation will need to be re-coated every 2-3 years especially on a high traffic area such as a driveway, you must take this ito consideration when choosing this type of driveway, it will not be expensive to re-seal but nonetheless you need to remember to have it done.
