Artificial Grass

Have you ever wanted a luxurious looking lawn all year round?

Artificial grass is made from synthetic fibres that are made to look like and feel like real grass. It has been used mainly in sport Arena’s but has now become more popular with many of our customers in Essex. We have supplied and laid artificial grass in many residential gardens because it not only looks good but it doesn’t need anything doing to it once we leave.

Block Paving

When it comes to replacing or having a new driveway in Essex with Allison Paving, you will instantly improve the whole look and value to your home.

We have listed below the technical specifications that we undertake when laying block paving:

  1. We will excavate to 200mm of soil and with then lay 100mm of lean mix concrete as a base to minimise any chance of the base sinking.
  2. Free edges are then set on a concrete base to stop the blocks from coming loose.
  3. We add, pack down and level 40mm of sand, which helps lock the pavers together and acts as a shock absorber.
  4. We lay our blocks only once we are satisfied that the foundations are correctly installed.
  5. We then brush fine sand between the blocks for added stability, it is then compacted again to further ensure the block paving will not move.
