3 Ways To Increase The Curb Appeal Of Your Driveway This Summer

Blog

If you want to increase the curb appeal of your home this summer, start with your driveway this summer. There are various ways that you can increase the curb appeal of your driveway.

Start by Repaving Your Driveway

The first thing that you should do to increase the curb appeal of your driveway is repave it, or pave it for the first time if you currently have a dirt or gravel driveway. A paved driveway can help give your home a really nice and polished look to it. It can pull together all of your outside landscaping.

When choosing a material for your driveway, asphalt is a great material to use. Asphalt is not that expensive to install, making it an affordable way to upgrade the look of your driveway. Asphalt is also really easy to take care of. You just need to get your driveway seal-coated every few years and your driveway will continue to look like new.

Additionally, the black color of your driveway can create a great contrast with the paint on your home and all the colors in your yard. A black driveway can really pop and highlight the other features of your home.

Then Outline Your Driveway

Once you have a new driveway in place, outline your driveway to bring attention to it. One of the best ways to outline your driveway is by using pavers to create a boarder around your new driveway. The same team that installed your new asphalt driveway can also put a layer of pavers around the edge of your driveway to really highlight this key features of the front of your home. If you are looking to save a little money, you can install the pavers around the edge of your driveway yourself. Bricks may be a little expensive to use for your entire driveway, but pavers can affordable when you use them to line your driveway.

Add Some Landscaping Features

Finally, finish off your driveway with some landscaping features. On either side of your garage where it meets with your driveway, purchase some tall plants and fill them with some colorful seasonal flowers. Place some other planters where your new driveway meets with your walkway. Colorful planters can really bring together your driveway with the rest of your home.

This summer, bring your entire driveway together and increase its curb appeal by installing a new asphalt driveway, outlining your driveway with pavers, and adding some big planters near your garage and walkway to bring your driveway together with the rest of your landscaping. For more information or assistance, contact local paving contractors.

Improving Your Paving

About a year ago, I realized that there were all kinds of problems with our home's pavement. The driveway seemed to be chipping apart and the front walkway was desperately cracked. I knew that I had to do something to improve things, so I started working on getting bids to improve things. It was amazing to see how many different pavement options we had and how great of a job one contractor eventually did. The difference was astounding after all of the pavement was broken out and things were fixed. This blog is all about improving your paving and making a significant difference in your home.
