4 Reasons Why a Paver Driveway is a Good Investment in Central Florida

Posted by Joe Mouad on Jul 7, 2022 10:30:00 AM

Some paver driveways are so impressive, you can host a party out there. The problem: everybody will spend the whole time looking down and not even notice your great new haircut.

Paver driveways are absolutely prettier and more luxurious looking than plain concrete. But is a paver driveway a good investment? You bet.

The benefits of a paver driveway really add up — here’s a look:

1. A Paver Driveway Sets Your Home Apart

Pavers let you tap into your inner artist and create a driveway unlike anybody else’s in the neighborhood.

So many colors, styles, and patterns — settle in for some real design fun.

Choose pavers that look like rustic slabs, quaint cobblestone, sleek slate. Or any combination.aerial photo of paver driveway with inlay
Do some inlays. Pick a fun color. Do a double border. You can make your driveway so fantastic, you’ll want to hang out there, just for fun. That beautiful paver driveway will increase your home value.

Feeling overwhelmed with all the choices? Don’t worry — a great Central Florida hardscape company will walk you through it and offer plenty of pro advice.

Make sure the one you choose has a landscape designer on staff. They bring the wow.

They’ll have samples you can compare to the color of your house, and catalogs packed with design ideas.

2. A Paver Driveway Is Built to Last

Unlike solid slabs of concrete, pavers flex and move as they shift, which means they don’t crack.

Tree root troubles? Nope. You can pick pavers up, take out the offending tree roots, and replace the pavers. No sweat. Maybe just a little sweat. This also comes in handy if you ever need to run a utility line underneath your patio. You can’t do that with concrete. It’s one of the great benefits of a paver driveway. paver driveway in front of home with green grassIf a paver gets chipped or damaged, it can be replaced.

All of these factors means a paver driveway is a good investment in your home’s value.

A paver driveway is an instant upgrade to your home, adding high-end appeal that boosts the beauty of your home and makes it automatically more valuable. Is a paver driveway worth the cost? It is.paver driveway lined with bushes and plantings

4. It Can Solve Landscaping Problems

Sometimes a paver driveway is more than just a driveway — it’s a landscaping dilemma problem solver.

At a Spanish Colonial home in a Central Florida gated community, a paver driveway made all the difference for one Ground Source client.

The homeowners of the striking high-end home entertain lots of friends, colleagues, and family. But getting to the front door was a real challenge, trudging up an 80-foot sidewalk from the street. paver driveway in front of spanish colonial homeInnovative paver driveway design to the rescue.

Their re-do would involve an elegant second driveway, adding parking spots for company, and connecting to the front door entrance, with a courtyard sort of feel. It eliminates that long trudge up from the street.

No boring stretch of pavement, the paver driveway incorporates stunning inlay designs in circles and overlapping diamonds.

Have a big Central Florida backyard? Lucky. Not everybody does.

“Big outdoor spaces offer a lot of options, but not many people have that luxury with the current lots being sold in Orlando,” says Ground Source Landscape Designer Eric Frisch.

Larger lots are typically outside of town, he says, and often much of the property is weeds and some scruffy Bahia grass. Sounds like it’s time for some large-area landscaping ideas.
