You can give your home a worthwhile makeover by adding a paved driveway. Not only will it add an aesthetic appeal to your home, but it will add quite a bit of value. Materials used for driveway paving are varied, and all have their own unique benefits.
A popular choice is an asphalt driveway. These are practical, functional and can look very attractive when edged with pavers, bricks, or blocks. For an extra touch, you could consider placing a circle of pavers somewhere in the driveway.
To create a rustic look, you could build driveway made of stone and asphalt. This is known as ‘chip and tar’. You can use colored stones that blend in with your garden and your home. These days you can get stone in beautiful colors.
For durability, longevity and practicality, concrete is the ultimate choice. There is however one very important aspect regarding a concrete driveway. It has to be well constructed with all the necessary joints. If not, it will crack and look unsightly.
Another brilliant option is concrete pavers. You can pave the entire area with these, and your driveway will look fantastic. A brick driveway is also an option for a long-lasting driveway. You can buy extra strong bricks for driveways that won’t get damaged when cars drive on them.
