Your driveway is one of the most important exterior features when it comes to having your property make a great first impression on visitors. By its very nature, it’s one of the first elements that your visitors will see. Furthermore, driveways occupy a significant part of your property. Even a small suburban driveway needs to be aesthetically appealing, financially feasible and completely functional.
That’s why at Prior Products, we’re such big fans of block paving driveways. Block paving is an elegant choice that offers a plethora of different design options that can complement any exterior—and it’s also extremely affordable. But can such an affordable paving method really offer enough design ideas that you’re guaranteed to find one that’s perfect for your home? Why not decide for yourself? Here are a few of our favourite block paving design inspirations.
Integrated ground cover
By integrating a geometric ground cover design in your driveway, you can create a path to your home that exemplifies a perfect fusion between landscaping and practicality. For example, you can create boarders that allow for a thin strip of ground cover between the driving tracks of your drive way and the edge of your lawn.
You can also create islands of sturdy, low to the ground foliage in the centre of your driveway. You can even get pavers designed to be porous that allow you to plant vegetation within designs in the pavers themselves. As an added bonus, these types of pavers are exceptionally environmentally friendly, reducing the risk of run off.
Contrasting colours to create elegant lines
A slate grey drive accentuated with ivory pavers, in a geometric or organic design, creates a high contrast aesthetic element that your guests are sure to notice and admire.
Block paving can also be used to mimic more expensive paving methods to great effect, and this is the case when it comes to offset brick designs. Shaped and coloured to resemble brick, these types of pavers can be used to create an inexpensive driveway that evokes luxury.
Light up the night
A well lit driveway is always appreciated, but did you know that with block paving, you can integrate paver lights? That’s right, instead of installing lights beside or above your driveway, these sturdy lights can be inset within your drive.
These are only a few of the exceptional and diverse design options you’ll find available when you opt for block paving for your drive! There are truly endless possibilities—one of them is bound to be perfect for your home.
