Adding a long curving driveway to your home can definitely enhance both the curb appeal and value of your home. However, it can be somewhat challenging to choose the right overall design and pavers for your home improvement project. Here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes, we want to help our clients choose the right driveway pavers that will ensure not only the beauty, but the functionality of your driveway and even help to make it friendly to the environment.


There are many decisions that come into play when choosing the right design for your driveway. Choosing the right textures and colors are among some of the most important decisions. You want to be sure to choose a paver that complements the already existing décor of your home. With that said, for traditional homes cobblestone concrete pavers and even classic brick pavers may be the ideal option. If your home has more of a modern design, sleek pavers with softer hues will give your driveway the perfect look.


Contours and dimensions play an important role in the overall design and look of your driveway. Small properties often benefit with a simple straight driveway design that can easily maximize your front yard. Modern homes tend to fare well with larger pavers and traditional homes with brick pavers, small in size. The form factor of your driveway pavers must be selected very carefully with a prime focus on your overall front yard and home dimensions.


Given the very heavy loads that driveways experience daily from vehicles, the durability of your pavers plays a very significant role in the overall strength and lifespan of your driveway. Here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes our team of professionals recommends you choose pavers that are robust to elements including dirt and stains so as to reduce damage to the surface from oil spills and the likes. In addition, choose pavers with UV resistance that prevents colors from fading when consistently exposed to the harmful outdoor elements.


Here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes, we believe that permeable pavers for driveways help to minimize the environmental impact on your property and helps to ultimately avoid standing water. Since permeable pavers have not only a porous surface, but also jointing compounds, water is allowed to flow through to the layers of subsoil and find its way to the groundwater.
