CONCRETE AND PAVERS DRIVEWAY & WALKWAYS

DRIVEWAY DESIGN AND INSTALLATION 


Your driveway is your home’s first impression. It’s the primary thing that guests see when they pull up to your home and is one of the most functional components of your home’s curb appeal.


DRIVEWAY DESIGN


When it comes to designing a driveway, you need to consider a few things. 


  • Driveways are built with purpose. King can help ensure your driveway is optimized, whether that means accommodating more cars, offering space for garage sales or whatever else you’d like to use it for.
  • Layout. Figuring out the layout of your driveway can be challenging, but King will work with you to ensure the design accommodates your lifestyle.
  • Laws and Regulation. New York has several zoning codes that will affect your driveway installation. These codes are meant to facilitate uniformity and safety.
  • Materials. Driveways can be constructed of everything from Belgium block to paver stone to decorative brick or asphalt. If you’re not sure which is right for you, we’ll help you make a choice about your materials and ensure that whatever you choose continues to work for you. Our knowledgeable team will also help you figure out how your desired materials fit into your budget.


DRIVEWAY INSTALLATION


The driveway construction and driveway design process is an important one for homeowners. When you work with the contractors here at King, we’ll walk through it with you, from determining the best layout to ensuring you’re using durable, long-lasting materials that will stand up to your lifestyle. Our contractors will walk you through every step of the process. 


OUTDOOR WALKWAY DESIGN


The outdoor walkways around your property serve many purposes. In addition to directing the flow of traffic, they also beautify the space, break up your landscaping and keep your lawn healthy by keeping foot traffic off of it. 


With all of that in mind, doesn’t it make sense that your pathways be as beautiful and durable as possible? Here at King Landscape Service, we specialize in helping our customers create beautiful, unique walkways to punctuate their property 


OUTDOOR WALKWAY MATERIALS


Not all outdoor walkways are created equal. In fact, you’ll have many options when it comes time to choose materials for your front or backyard walkway. As you choose between them, don’t forget to consider your home’s architecture and the garden and landscaping surrounding your home.


You’ll also want to consider the overall appearance you want from your walkway. While some materials look more formal and offer straight clean lines, others are more informal or textural, offering curved lines.


Last but not least, you’ll want to prioritize safety as you choose the material for your walkway. If the landscaping and architecture of your home are more formal, brick or stone will provide a nice, colorful and durable walkway that works with your home’s style.


Common materials include:


  • Bluestone, flagstone, brownstone or limestone. These materials are popular in grass or gravel and offer a more informal “stepping stone” aesthetic and feel.
  • Crushed stone. Crushed stone adds brightness to a walkway, thanks to a variety of white, blue, pink, gray and other colors.
  • For a softer look on your walkway, look to specific mosses or fragrant herbs, including thyme.


BENEFITS OF OUTDOOR WALKWAYS


There are dozens of benefits of an outdoor walkway. In addition to being beautiful and functional, walkways offer the following perks:


  • Walkways offer access to disparate parts of your property, like garden gazebos, benches, pools, outdoor kitchens and more.
  • Cohesion. By linking the various parts of your property and yard together, an outdoor walkway offers a sense of cohesion and purpose.
  • Visual Appeal. Depending on the material you choose, an outdoor walkway can be intensely beautiful. This is especially true for walkways that you adorn with ground covers, plants or similar green elements. For added appeal, include some lighting along the pathway.
