Contrasting patterns of Mega-Bergerac® pavers add interesting detail to the driveway above. The main field of the driveway utilized a four-piece random pattern laid at a 45 degree angle. The border was created by laying only the rectangular piece in a double soldiers course.

Natural Look Mega ArbelFor the above driveway, irregular-shaped Mega-Arbel® pavers were used to create a natural flagstone look that seamlessly coordinates with the surrounding picturesque landscape.

Different paver products can also be combined to create visual interest or coordinate with architectural detail. For the above driveway, Mega Lafitt™ pavers offer a cut stone texture and were chosen for the main field in a color that mimics the stone veneer of the home.

  1. We are purchasing a house where we have a very long driveway on 35 ac. The weather in Castle Rock, CO is extreme and I am concerned about the amount of care need to maintain the drive.

  2. I have always had the idea that it is better to have a house that is unique and different from others. I think that paving your driveway with brick or stone is a great way to add a uniqueness to your house that separates it from the others. Like you said, you can add different colors and patterns so that no matter what it is unique to you and your style.
