So, you need your driveway to be paved. Before deciding what material—concrete or asphalt or pebbles—will be used on the construction of your driveway, you have to answer one very important question: how will you use the space? Your driveway can have several different functions for you—ranging from a personal Lakeland parking lot paving to an extension of your garden. The range of these functions will require different pavement materials, so it is important to pinpoint on what the function of your new driveway will be for you and your family.
What are the different designs and functions that your driveways can provide to you?
The most common function of home driveways is to create a space where the homeowners can park their cars. You know how much money needs to be paid to rent or buy a land in America right now? Not all people can afford a house with a garage, but almost every house has a little driveway in front of it. Pave this land with asphalt and you’ve got a good space where you can park your car (instead of leaving it by the side of the road). You will feel safer leaving your belongings on your personal driveway than on the streets, right?
Play space for kids
You can also turn that extra land in front of your house into your very own play space for kids. Got kids? You know they need as much room as you have where they can run, jump, and play around. You can turn your driveway into a personal playground and put up a slide, a see-saw, and a ball pit. Just make sure you have a fence surrounding your property, too, so that your kids wouldn’t wander around other people’s properties.
Oh yes, you can turn your driveway into your personal lounge area, too, where you can sit in the morning, drink coffee, and read your magazine. Sure, it could be a little too public, but if you’ve got no problem with it, then your contractor certainly wouldn’t find an issue, too.
Your driveway could be an extension of your actual garden area. You can put up lush greeneries on either side, so that you will have a pretty space leading to your house. You can hire a separate contractor to landscape your driveway after it has been paved with concrete or asphalt or decorating tools like pebbles.
