Flagstone Specialists – Garden Patio Driveways Flagging
Are you looking to resurface your driveway, replace a tired or unsafe patio or redesign your garden access? Flagstones form a versatile, hard-wearing surface that can add character to a driveway, patio area or even a garden path, providing the stones are professionally laid and the ideal balance is found between style and function. As flagstone specialists operating in the Chorlton, Didsbury and Greater Manchester area, MT Paving can guarantee an exceptional service and an end product that you can be proud of for many years to come.
A good, solid, weed-free foundation is the starting point for any successful surface-laying work and we would begin by excavating the target area to an industry-specified depth of 250mm (all debris will be removed from the site to leave your home looking neat and tidy). A geotex membrane will then be laid to keep weeds at bay and provide more strength and stability. Next comes a layer of MOT Type I aggregate which is then compressed before our flagstone specialists lay the stones on top and finish to your specification.
It goes without saying that laying a long-lasting, hard-wearing surface requires sourcing high quality materials. Our experienced flagstone specialists have an eye for premium quality slabs so you can rest assured that your product will be free from the kinds of defects seen in driveways, paths and patios that have clearly been constructed from low grade ‘budget’ materials. Once you have provided us with an idea of your functional and aesthetic requirements, we can help you to select the right type of flagstone for your project and answer any questions you might have about the strengths and weaknesses of different types of flagstone.
You will probably have seen that flagstones come in numerous styles, shapes, sizes and colours and MT Paving can offer you to an extensive range of options to choose from. Whether you already have a clear idea of the type of driveway, patio area or garden path you are looking for, or you are seeking some inspiration and creative ideas from our flagstone specialists, we can provide sound design advice from our many years in the industry combined with an appreciation of what is popular and what works in the local area. We will also make sure that your chosen flagstones are suitable for the purpose you are intending to use them for. For example, driveway flags will need to be able to bear a heavy load without cracking while safety is an important consideration when designing a patio surface.

Our team can carry out a full range of landscaping services including brickwork, turfing, fencing and gravelling.
