Tobermore Tegula block paving stands out for its wide range of colour blends as well as the availability of trio packs which increase the variety of patterns to lay.
The above product specifications are useful for a number of reasons. Many of us can be dazzled by spectacular looking pictures of driveway areas without paying enough attention to the ‘details‘.
Lets take a look at a couple of these below:
Firstly, stringent quality standards are evident. This is important as this gives peace of mind that a consistent high quality standards have been maintained during production.
Secondly, we’re informed that the chances of efflorescence are reduced due to a ‘12 hour vapour cooling process‘. This is reassuring as efflorescence is unsightly and takes many years to disappear.
Thirdly, the manufacturing location is UK based. This supports the UK economy and means high British Standards of manufacture are adhered to.
Finally, the references to recyclable qualities as well as information on energy use and carbon footprint all point to a production process with the environment in mind. This matters a lot.
So with some of the ‘nitty gritty‘ out of the way it’s just time to select a colour, some edging and book an installation date.

Tobermore Tegula Block Paving – Examples
So, with an idea of the colours available and an engaging online experience you can easily get a good idea of what may suit an area you intend to pave. It’s always a good idea to talk with an installer about edging, sub base preparation and of course drainage. It’s also a good idea to discuss any difficult areas to agree (beforehand) what you want to finished look to be.
This is a satisfying example of Tegula laid with a semi circular feature in front of the door and different sized block sets to create a border around the edge. Drainage to the lawn area provides a sustainable drainage system.
We think it’s wise to avoid ‘garish‘ looking colours on period homes. This is perfectly illustrated above by the use of the complimentary slate choice of colour from the Tegula range. The ‘cobble‘ feel fits the house. and there’s no need for added design features or different colour edging. On the basis that surface water drainage runs away from the house towards a road, an important aspect of this type of installation is ensuring sustainable drainage is in mind from the outset.
Tobermore Tegula Block Paving – Pricing and Availability
The Tegula range of blocks are competitively priced and the only issue we’ve come across is availability. Regional price differences make it difficult to provide an accurate square metre price but an approximate price range of £23 – £27 per square metre is about right.
In summary, we consider the Tobermore Tegula block paving range to offer quality driven value for money that maintain high manufacturing quality standards.
