We are paving our front drive and are using Marshalls coppice block paving for it (the bricks are larger than normally - 260x160mm). It's a very small driveway and we were planning to lay all the bricks in a single direction (including the edgeing) in a stretcher bond pattern to create a uniform look. However the path leading up to our front door is at an acute angle to the house so we are at a loss as to how to best edge that side of the driveway.

What would be the best way to tackle that slant of the path without making the driveway look wonky or not having enough support on that side?

It's difficult to advise on a site I haven't seen, but, if I've envisaged what you have correctly, I'd look at rotating the body blocks on that slanting path to keep the transverse courses running perpendicular to the edges.

Does that make sense?

If you post or send me a photie, I might be able to make things clearer.
