Custom Driveway Material Design Ideas

Custom Driveway Material Design Ideas

For the homeowner dedicated to the most beautiful design both inside and out, there are many areas of landscaping to consider. One outdoor design element often passed over as people look to the usual suspects: Driveways. When guests arrive at your home, before they even get up your front walk, their very first impression will come from your driveway. It might be subtle and won’t be a talking point for the whole evening, but it will often set the tone. At Impressions Landscape, Pools & Spa, our hardscape services include custom paving for everything patios and decks to driveways and walkways. Let’s look at a few different materials, and how they can add to your driveway design.

Paver Driveway

Whether you’re using brick or any other type of stone, this look can give an elegant, homey feel to many driveways. The stone look goes well both with symmetrical designs and asymmetrical ones, and can be perfect when placed in between tiles of poured concrete. Many of the most modern homes, including many with studio architecture, complement things with paver format driveways. It’s easy to work around items like trees or plants – some people even use these in the middle of their driveways to add to the ambiance.

Concrete Ideas

Concrete is often used to complement stones or gravel, but it can also be perfect as the primary material. Many modern, minimalist house designs include basic concrete poured driveways – many of these are also some of the best with drainage and other practical elements. Concrete is also great as the primary product around a grass lining in many rural settings, or in combination with asphalt on a large incline.

Gravel

For houses going for an even more homey theme, loose gravel on the driveway can be a great way to attain it. Gravel is perfect for a rural setting with lots of trees and green in the eye line, or perfect for a small family cottage. It’s easy and cheap to install, plus simple to maintain.
