Types of Groundworks we specialise in:


Earthworks are the engineering works involving removal, excavation and filling of an surface soil or rock necessary for creating a sound surface for construction of any type. If earthworks are not carried out correctly a complete build can be compromised.


Piling is a process of boring or driving pile foundations into ground that is perhaps too weak to support a building. This piling transfers the loads across the ground instead or relying wholly on the structure. This creates total stability. Piling may be made up of wood, steel or concrete.


Foundations are the lowest part or a building or piece of construction, they provide support for any structure or surface making an even weight bearing capacity to ensure a structure does not move or drop in any area. The depth of foundations will vary according to how high or big the structure is. Construction of foundations can include concrete, steel, stones and bricks. It will depend on the soil and the structure as to what is necessary.

Masonry works

Masonry work is the construction process that uses bricks, stones and concrete. It may be either weight bearing or not. It can mean building walls, tunnels or attaching cladding. We at Ashley Paving have skilled masons able to undertake all forms on masonry work as required.

Reviews & Testimonials

What our customers say about us

Ashley Paving have just finished a small area of patio and a garden pathway in sandstone block paving for me, and we’re delighted with the work. It’s been professionally done with a good base and I was asked at each stage of the laying if I was happy with how it was being set out etc. Paddy came to quote and oversaw the work: really straight forward and easy to deal with. The pricing was really competitive, the guys were all courteous and cleaned up when they left, and although it was a relatively small job it was done with care and professionalism…. would happily recommend.

Anna Baldwin

My driveway has just been completed and it looks amazing. Shane and his team were punctual, professional from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble, the site was left neat and tidy each day. I was also kept up to date on a daily bases. The work was finished on time and with a minimum of fuss.

I would highly recommend Ashley Paving. Thank you, Shane & Paddy

Sharon Cuthbert

Ashley paving did an absolutely fantastic job with our garden! They transformed it from a post-apocalyptic wasteland into a gorgeous garden, replete with grass, well-constructed walls, paths and a patio. We are really happy with it. The chaps are very professional, polite and easy to talk to and negotiate with. We can’t recommend them enough. Thank you, guys! Mike & Tash

Michael Keegan

We had some flooding back of garden during long spell of rain, I left it a year before this review and the work still seems fine. Drainage and paving was supplied professionally to a high standard and am very pleased. See before and after photo. They offered advice to raise shed height and build walls round the neighbouring gardens to avoid rain overspill. Friendly and reasonably priced.

Mr Manuel

We had our drive completed in October 18. Shane and his team did a brilliant job. They were polite, trustworthy and reliable, and the drive looks great. Really happy with the service throughout.
