Three Things to Consider When Choosing Driveway Pavers

Your driveway is one of the first things people see when they pull up to your house, so you want to make sure your driveway’s design flows with your home and landscape. However, you also want it to function properly. Driveway pavers are a great option if you want to have a beautifully designed and properly functioning driveway. Here are a few things to consider when looking into driveway pavers:

  1. Durability- Driveways endure quite a bit of wear and tear over time, so you need to choose pavers that will handle the heavy car and foot traffic they receive. Some different types of durable pavers to consider are concrete, brick, and cobblestone.
  2. Design- You want to choose pavers that will flow with the style of your home. Brick pavers are an earthier style and come in red, orange, rust, and brown colors. They are a great option if you are looking for a more neutral look. Concrete pavers come in many different shapes, sizes and colors. Your options are endless, so it is easier to design a driveway to fit with your home if it has a more complex or unique style. You also want to consider the layout of your driveway and choose pavers that will be easier to install and work with your design layout.
  3. Maintenance- You want your driveway to be as low-maintenance as possible. Natural stone pavers require less maintenance than if you were to use loose gravel for your driveway. Though the up-front investment of pavers is higher, that investment is worth it in the long run. By using pavers, you avoid spending more money on maintenance costs.

There are many options to choose from for your new driveway. Do your research and figure out which driveway pavers are right for you.
