Spring Is a Good Time to Plan for That New Driveway

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 26 July , 2015

One of the most overlooked aspects with regards to the exterior of any residential property is the driveway. Driveways tend to set the tone for how people respond to a home. If a driveway is relatively new and in good repair, it provides a positive vibe. If a driveway is in disrepair and it looks shabby, people tend to feel that way before they ever come inside the house. Aside from aesthetics, there are other reasons to make sure that a driveway looks good and functions well. Spring is the time to start planning on the possibility of improving this aspect of your home.

Below you will find a brief overview of different aspects of putting in a new driveway. You will find information regarding how the aesthetics of the driveway can be improved and how the functionality of a driveway serves a very important purpose. Anyone who has been considering this step should seek the help of experienced San Diego hardscape professionals as soon as possible.

Choosing the Right Materials

Many people simply choose some form of light-colored concrete for their driveway and then move on without another thought. While this may be the best choice for some, it should be noted that any leaks from vehicles on this color will leave stains that can be quite noticeable and ugly. Therefore, you need to carefully choose the type of material you want to use. Fortunately, the choices vary widely and can be catered to your tastes. You can choose smooth concrete or patterned stone – it’s up to you.

Choosing the Right Shape and Layout

People who live on a street with heavy traffic may dread having to back out of their driveway every morning, as no one wants to back into oncoming traffic. Fortunately, there are different shapes that can be chosen such as a T-shape that will allow people to back up and then turn around so that they can pull forward into the street. This obviously adds safety to the home, but it can also add a high level of aesthetic quality.

Choosing the Proper Driveway Company

Unfortunately, there are many companies out there that will promote themselves as driveway installers even though they basically work with concrete. People who are looking for professional help need to work with a team of partners who understand how to plot out a proper driveway, how to pick out the best materials, how to put the driveway in and how to help the customer understand what’s being done and why. This will only make the entire experience more enjoyable for everyone involved and likely lead to a much better result.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
