Visit a Nicolock Paving Stones design center for more driveway suggestions and driveway landscaping ideas.

1.) Eco-Friendly Pavers and Patterns

A typical paved driveway generates a lot of runoff every time it rains. Eco-friendly paving stones and driveway patterns are designed to allow rain to percolate through, returning water to the soil and replenishing the water table. From Checker Block® paving stones that allow grass to grow between the paving stones for a lush, green look to SF-Rima® permeable driveway pavers that look like stone, but allow water to percolate through, Nicolock Paving Stones has the eco-friendly options you need to stand out as a champion of the environment.

2.) Octagonal Cobblestone

Add a unique pattern and a rustic flair to your driveway by installing octagonal Cobblestone paving stones. Featuring paver-shield™ technology for true, fade-resistant color, the modern cobblestone driveway paving stones come in a combination of 2 shapes and can be installed in 3 different patterns to suit your space. No tricky patterns are needed as the unique shape of these paving stones keeps things interesting.

3.) Dripping in Diamonds

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but they're not too shabby for homeowners either. Give your driveway a high-end look by choosing a diamond pattern. Diamond paving stones deliver visual interest and by using contrasting colors, you can easily create custom patterns that no other house on the block will have. The 8" x 8" paving stones are designed to fit together easily and feature paver-shield™ technology for the most vivid driveway colors.

4.) Classic Chevron Pattern

Chevron patterns are making a big comeback, which is one of our favorite modern driveway ideas because of their versatility. The Holland Stone has a classic brick shape and is the perfect choice for pulling off the chevron pattern. The 3 1/8" thick bricks have a flat surface and chamfered edges. The simple shape allows them to be installed in a variety of patterns, though the classic chevron is always a fan favorite. Try playing with bricks of different sizes to create different visuals.

5.) Inlays, Borders and Circle Kits

Upgrade your traditional paving stone driveway by adding an inlay, a border or a circle kit. Designed to add visual interest, these kits and inlays come in a wide range of colors that blend in or stand out. The Ridge Circle is a popular choice when it comes to round driveway designs.
