-Borders and Aprons: How to create a visually interesting driveway using concrete pavers -
Picture this: You’ve just purchased a beautiful new five-bedroom Craftsman home in a wonderful neighborhood. The landscaping is superb and you love the interior details of your house. But something just isn’t quite right. When you drive up to your new home, your driveway doesn’t match the overall aesthetic. You begin to wonder how you can improve the overall look of your driveway without spending too much money or destroying the surface that’s already there. Alternatively: You’re close to retirement and looking to sell your house. How do you make your home the home to buy? The answer lies in using concrete pavers to create decorative aprons and bordering for your driveway. Pavers can be used to effectively create a whole new front yard aesthetic. Whether preparing your home for sale or for your own enjoyment, concrete pavers offer an amazing solution to a vexing problem: how do you make your driveway as dynamic and exciting as the rest of your house?
Borders for definition
Borders provide visually interesting contrast and highlight your home’s entrance when used to frame a driveway. Borders constructed with durable concrete pavers can preserve the edges of an asphalt surface and aid in containing gravel. For this reason alone, using a border to frame your gravel driveway is a sound choice. On a design level, stunning effects can be achieved by utilizing dark borders in combination with light gravel. For example, when the old world cobblestone texture of paver interacts with pale and coarse gravel, a beautiful cool and earthy aesthetic is achieved. From a design standpoint, the varied textures and tones of the gravel and pavers create a wholly unique and dynamic image. The use of pavers as a border creates a clear distinction between the road and your home while simultaneously heightening the overall look of your landscaping. Lastly, using pavers as a border, rather than as the driveway itself, saves you money while creating a unique and fresh design.
Aprons as an aesthetic opening
Driveway aprons are perfect for boosting curb appeal and creating a memorable driveway opening. Aprons also make the construction of a flared driveway entrance a possible addition to your gravel or asphalt driveway. This is achieved by replacing the front section of a driveway with concrete pavers, creating a durable link between the street and the home. Normally this section extends between 5 and 15 ft. away from the street, but can extend further to accommodate longer driveways. Choose from various styles like modern, colonial, contemporary, English classic, or craftsman.
Great materials for matching your home’s aesthetic
Concrete pavers provide a wide spectrum of style and color option to accommodate the architecture of almost any home. By adding an apron or border with concrete pavers, you can add character to existing asphalt or gravel driveways with product choices that play off the materials used in the façade of the home.

Top 5 Driveway Design Considerations
1. Complement Your Home
A Peninsula paver driveway enhances the curb appeal and value of your home and reflects your pride of ownership.
2. Size Matters
The minimum width for a single car driveway is 12 feet. For a double car garage, plan a minimum of 20 feet. The minimum length of driveway in order to park a car is 22 feet. Add 22 feet for each additional car you wish to park. If your driveway abuts a wall, slope or garden, add 4 feet to the width so that passengers in the car can comfortably open their doors and exit.
Consider how guests will get from your driveway to your front door. When adding a walkway that joins your driveway at the front of the house, the optimal “mouth” is 16 feet so that the car door isn’t too far from the walkway, 12 feet is the minimum.
4. Four Season Considerations
Think about where you will pile snow in winter and be sure to choose a paver that can withstand de-icing salts. Consider permeable pavers to reduce rainwater runoff and decrease ice accumulation in winter. This applicable to our customers in Newport News, Wiliamsburg, Richmond, James City County, Toano, Virginia areas only.
5. Make it Your Own
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your driveway to make it your own. With pavers, there are an unlimited number of design possibilities.
Consider using Pavers instead of stamped concrete that is prone to cracking or asphalt which disintegrates and breaks away at the edges.
Two types of concrete:
