Company News

We Have Moved

Propave Solutions has now changed address. The premises in Waterlooville was the first address for the business since it started back in 1997. The company grew in size in terms of customer demands and an increase in services offered. Originally customers were happy to have their paved driveway built with no extra demands. After 10 years of service the company started to offer other solutions including groundworks, drainage, landscaping and drop kerbing. This forced the business to look at other premises to store the machinery they now acquired.

The company has now moved to Horndean, not too far away from the original location and still offers it’s services to local residents, homeowners and commercial properties.

New Business Ventures

Also to add to the good news Paul Weaving has now launched two other new business in the construction industry. One business is to offer groundwork services to construction companies on a contract basis. He supplies gangs to cover all the foundation work on new builds around Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. His groundwork gangs has proved successful and there is always work. He is in the business of signing up new recruits to meet the ever changing demands of this growing industry. The firm is called Trade Labour Services, also based in Hampshire.

More recently Paul launched another company in January called Plans To Completion Ltd. This company provide a complete build and management service for new builds, extensions, general builds, conservatories and loft conversions. Utilising his skills as a foreman, he has partnered with building specialists to launch this new venture. Visit for more information.

Step By Step Process

The Design

The exciting part is to design the layout and design with you, taking in to consideration the block shape, material, colour and finish. This will help you feel comfortable with the work from day one, and put your mind to rest if you have any questions. We would only proceed once you are fully satisfied with the design and quote.


We will excavate to the regulated depth for the sub-base, screeding and paving, ensuring the finished level is the correct depth below the damp proof course of any adjoining building. We will have to create a very slight slope to allow for drainage.

Edging & Drainage

We would then lay a concrete foundation to the required thickness, mixing the ballast and cement accordingly. The kerb units or edge restraint will be built. At this stage the edging would be fixed in place and drainage, if required.

Sub Base & Screeding

We would now create the sub base using the layers of MOT Type 1 and standard levelling techniques to set the base to the required thickness.

Screeding will now take place to the required thickness.

Paving & Finishing Touches

The fun part will be to install the block paving in the desired pattern, which was decided on step one.

Now for the finishing touches to sweep the driveway to remove debris before filling any minor gaps and setting the stones in place, then cleaning or washing the whole driveway for a beautiful finish.
