A First Impression Paver Driveway

Your driveway is your home’s first impression. Why not make it a lasting impression with pavers?

Pavers are both durable and stylish. They are several times stronger than concrete and have a longer lifetime than asphalt or gravel. In addition, you can choose from a variety of colors, textures, and sizes, so you can have a driveway that reflects your taste and your personality.

When choosing a paver for a driveway, ICPI recommends an interlocking pattern instead of large slabs. The strongest interlocking pattern is herringbone, either in a 4x8 or 6x9 paver. Other options would include the “I” pattern (6x6/6x9) or some of the smaller modular (random) patterns.

Although the initial cost of a paver driveway is more expensive than plain concrete or asphalt, the 20-year lifecycle proves to be less expensive because it requires less maintenance. Remember, concrete cracks and asphalt must be sealed on a regular basis.

Stylish Options Custom Driveway

Stylish options include adding a wider, bolder soldier course, mixing colors, adding a circle kit in the center or a fan kit at the entrance. Special paver art mosaics and patterns are also available. Visit for more creative ideas.


Eco-Friendly Driveways Paver Driveway

For those who are committed to “going green,” we highly recommend ECO-pavers, which are permeable. Permeable pavement systems are perfect for managing storm water runoff and help protect the Chesapeake Bay watershed area. You can choose a simple permeable system using pavers and several layers of different sized crushed stone for your base, or a fully-operational rain-water harvesting system underneath the entire area of pavement.
