Creating Interesting Driveways with Paver Patterns

If you’re looking for a way to create unique curb appeal for your home, a paver driveway can present endless opportunities to add flair and individual personality to the entrance of your home through the use of various color combinations and laying patterns. This week’s blog will illustrate a few ideas for creating eye-catching driveway designs with paver patterns.

Bergerac Fan Design The intricate fantail design above was created using the hand-cobbled look of Bergerac® pavers and adds a whimsical touch to this elegant driveway.

Contrasting colors of Urbana® Stone pavers were used to create a contemporary design of interlocking geometric shapes for the parking pad of the driveway above, as well as add a striking border to both the drive and garden bed.

Mega Bergerac Angles

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. To add a tailored feel, the pavers were edged with stamped concrete stained in a contrasting color.

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. A contrasting color of Urbana® Stone creates a striking border and mimics the color of the brick.

This contemporary driveway uses a modular ashlar pattern of Rinn™ Medino® pavers, augmented with a custom carriage drop design consisting of a double Bergerac® Circle inlaid with a mosaic stair created using the Rinn™ Medino® pavers.

This eco-friendly driveway also uses an ashlar pattern, but it’s laid at a 45-degree angle to create more visual interest. The permeable Eco Dublin® pavers are used in contrasting colors with a triple border and inlaid stripes to create an ultra-contemporary vibe.

  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.

    1. Are you or do you do driveways with pavers or cobblestone or brick? And also do you give your opinion on what will look good according to the house.? It is a 1938 built home that we are remodeling, white siding with black shutter, cracked drive way. I thought a black asphalt driveway would look good but they tell me that won’t last because of the cracks in the cement driveway, We need a little help to decide. The driveway is over 3000sf. Look forward to hearing from you. Joy

      1. Belgard concrete pavers have a significantly longer life cycle than asphalt–which will sink, crumble and crack. If installed by a Belgard Authorized Contractor, Belgard pavers are guaranteed to last the life of your home. Depending upon how cracked your current driveway is and where you’re located, as long as the base of the driveway is still sound, there’s a possibility you can overlay it with thin pavers. If so, you will save a significant amount of money over demolishing and removing the old driveway. To see if this an option for you, visit our contractor locator page at http://www.Belgard.com/locator. Ask the contractor to inspect your driveway to see if you can use DriBond™ to help facilitate the overlay. This product by Techniseal® is relatively new to the market and will fill in the cracks on your existing driveway and provide a bedding layer for the pavers that when activated with water will harden and dry like concrete, creating a secure bond.
