I have an old concrete drive along the side of the house. Although i believe there is a slight fall to the road, there is nevertheless puddling in places after rainfall, which only disappears by drying. I would like to lay block paviours but don't really want to take up the concrete. The drive used to be used by small lorries (40 years ago) and I believe is very thick. Would it be acceptable to lay say 30 - 50mm sharp sand over, then paviours on top. If I laid to a 1 in 60 minimum fall, would the water nevertheless get through the joints and puddle under the paviours and on top of the concrete? Many thanks.
