The first impression visitors get of your home is your driveway. Make a good first impression by choosing a custom paving stone driveway, with a unique feature or design that will make your home stand out. Unique driveway designs have been popular for a while now, with concrete or asphalt driveways becoming a thing of the past as more and more homeowners embrace the standout patterns and colors that can only be achieved with paving stones. Read on for some driveway landscaping ideas to help your home shine.
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.
