If you own a home, chances are you have a driveway for easy
access. Though often overlooked, a driveway can have an impact on your property
value by increasing your curb appeal.
There are a few driveway design ideas that you can implement that will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the appearance of your home from the street. At Amaya’s Landscaping, we can help you decide and implement the top driveway designs for your home. Whether building or just simply renovating your driveway, the professionals at our driveway installation company Amaya’s Landscaping have you covered. We will help pick the design that is best suited for your home.
Here are a few things to consider to help you get started:
- Budget — This
is a big part of deciding what driveway design you can implement. If you want
to install a paver driveway, the upfront cost might be a tad higher than other
building materials. However, maintenance for a paver driveway is typical lower
than other materials like gravel, which is cheaper to install but more
expensive to upkeep. Concrete will give you the middle of the road in terms of
install costs and maintenance costs over time.
— The look of your driveway is obviously a large component to consider when
designing a new driveway. It can make a big difference in the exterior
appearance of your home. Based on your home’s material, color and other design
elements, you should vary your driveway’s material to match what you have. Some
driveway materials look better with different homes. A gravel driveway might
look great if you have a rustic farmhouse cottage but would look out of place
in a suburban neighborhood. A brick driveway might look great as a contrast to
a colonial-style home.
Requirements — Though design and visual appeal are important pluses that a
new driveway can bring, the most important aspect is the driveway’s utility.
After all, it is the access point from the road to your home. Where you live
can play a large part in determining the type of driveway you should build.
Precipitation, like snow and heavy rainfall, can take a toll on your driveway,
so can large variations in temperature between seasons. The climate in your
region should give you insight into the durability requirements for your
- Layout — The
three most used driveway layouts are straight, circular and curved. Depending
on your home’s style and yard you will need to make a decision among these
options. You will also need to determine the width requirements, which can be
determined by the size of your house and the number of drivers you have living
