The driveway is the first thing that a visitor sees when they enter your home and everyone appreciates a beautiful, well constructed driveway. A cracked, tatty drive makes your whole property look run down and getting the job done well can give you decades of good service. So if you want your home to really stand out you can start with the driveway first, then why not consider these options too!

Install a gate that compliment it

It’s obvious that when one enters your home the first thing they’ll notice is your gate. There are numerous choices of material eg metal or wood and you can also have electric options too – really creating the wow factor.

Line your Driveway

If your driveway is long then flowering shrubs compliment this piece concrete / tarmac / block paving. You can plant different types and colours of flowers to make it look more attractive and if you’re not keen on flowers, you can try solar lights on stakes.

Enough money? Build a fountain

If you have a big budget, why not have a fountain – especially if it is a courtyard or circular driveway. It puts your home on another level.

Paint a Decorative Turning Point

If you do want plants to maintain or you do not want a fountain, you can always be creative with paint or the arrangement of your block paving driveway. If you’re going for pattern-imprinted concrete then you can have a specific pattern to this effect.

Minimal

If you’re into a more minimalist approach then opt for hanging baskets or potted plants.
