A paver driveway apron or paver borders on your new driveway will help to lock the asphalt in place. Pavers are chosen by many of our clients because you can choose your color, texture, finish and design. With pavers, the opportunities are endless. We'd love to show you some photos of driveway projects we have completed - and can offer samples that match with your home.
Belgian Block Borders are the cheapest driveway border available. They are a natural stone, cut from the side of a mountain, and imported specifically for your driveway project. Cobblestones are a timeless classic that will last until you are ready to replace your driveway again. These stones never fade, and will help your driveway to look new for years to come.
Concrete curbing is a tried and true approach to installing a driveway border. While concrete curbing is more expensive than paver borders or Belgian Block Borders, it does provide an industrial look that is different from other offerings. Concrete curbing is very durable, and can be installed with or without metal reinforcement, depending on the location's traffic.
While it is recommended that you install a driveway border, we do run into pavement projects where we can install the asphalt up to your existing border - or to no border at all. A driveway border will help to minimize the likelihood of the asphalt failing prematurely, and will add significant curb appeal to your home. While it is possible to install a new asphalt driveway without a border, it is best practice to use pavers, concrete, or cobblestones.
Not thrilled with the idea of asphalt for your driveway? There are other options - concrete and pavers also act as great materials for parking or for your driveway, but are not as cheap as asphalt. There are advantages and disadvantages to asphalt driveways, concrete driveways, and paver driveways.
