    Stone & Paver Driveway Installation

    When was the last time you thought about your home’s driveway? If you’re like most homeowners, it’s likely been quite a long time. But your driveway goes a long way toward setting the tone of your home from the moment that guests approach.

    If you’re considering upgrading your driveway — either as a standalone project or as part of your larger landscaping plans — get in touch with Van Zelst. We’ll explore materials, patterns, textures, and designs, working with you to transform your driveway into a showpiece that complements your home and increases its curb appeal.

    When it comes to your driveway, you have plenty of choices! Check out the images below to draw some design inspiration, then contact us to set up your complimentary consultation.

    Patterns Add Interest

    Your driveway pattern can add additional elegance and visual interest. Here, the homeowner opted for premium Whitacre-Greer North Shore clay pavers installed in a herringbone pattern with a five-course running bond border.

    Alternate Driveway Materials

    Driveways don't have to be crafted of boring asphalt—they can and should complement your home. Here, the homeowners opted for a red brick driveway framed by cobblestone pavers.

    Warm Tones

    The driveway materials you use can change the entire look and feel of your home's exterior. Here, the Glenview homeowners opted to call attention to the warm wood tones of their shutters and garage doors with a red brick driveway.

    Cool Tones

    The materials you choose for your driveway can have a huge impact on how formal or informal your landscape appears. Here, these Lake Geneva homeowners opted for a driveway consisting of cool-toned pavers, creating a more formal-feeling entryway for their home.

    Non-Paved Options

    There's something about the sound of gravel under your tires that reminds you that you aren't in the big city anymore. Here, the homeowners added to their home "country estate" feel by opting for a gravel driveway in neutral colors.

    A Taste of What's to Come

    Your home's entryway—and its driveway—should offer friends and visitors a taste of what's to come and a sense of your property's larger design aesthetic. This home's large gate and stone driveway allude to the luxuriousness of the overall property.

    It's in the Details

    Numerous little details comprise the overall look and feel of your home's exterior, and your driveway is no exception. Here, the pattern of the courtyard stone is reflected and complemented in the white brick and in the hatch-pattern planters that flank the space.

    Concrete Pavers

    It's possible to design an attractive, custom entryway with commonly-available materials. Here, the homeowners created a driveway using concrete pavers; the color and texture of the pavers complement the existing landscape and hardscape elements without competing for attention.

    Ample Space

    When designing your home's driveway, remember to consider your lifestyle and how you want to be able to use the space. For example, if you like to entertain friends and family, you may want to create a driveway that offers ample parking options.

    Upgrade Your Home with a Custom Driveway

    Replacing your existing asphalt or poured concrete driveway with a custom driveway immediately upgrades your property's appearance. Ready to explore how a custom driveway could enhance your home’s curb appeal? Get in touch with us to set up a free consultation.
