The driveway is a large paved area that is often a central feature of the front yard, contributing greatly to the home’s curb appeal. For this reason, it should definitely not be overlooked when searching for ways to add personality to your Burr Ridge, IL, landscape. Edging, or bordering, is a great way to boost the aesthetic appeal of your driveway and add contrast, depth and complementary texture to your driveway design. This small design trick can have a huge impact and can be achieved using a number of different combinations from the vast inventory of Unilock pavers. Here are some edging ideas that incorporate a classic brick style while bringing cutting edge design to your driveway:
Town Hall Pavers With Umbriano Borders
This combination of pavers is sure to give you the contrast you need for a beautiful driveway. Town Hall is an expertly-crafted paver that offers the elegant, aged appearance of original street brick, while Umbriano pavers offer a stunning substitute for natural granite. These two pavers are an ideal pair. Umbriano in French Grey or Winter Marvel, for example, contrasts perfectly with the deep charcoal of Town Hall in the Basalt color option.
Tribeca Cobble with Courtstone Edging
This combination is straight out of Old World Europe. Both of these pavers are made to look as if they have been aged for centuries, but this does not mean they lack in color or integrity. These pavers are manufactured with EnduraColor Facemix Technology, ensuring that they continue to look brilliant for years after installation. The Peppered Granite color option of Tribeca paired with accents of Belgian Blue Courtstone pavers produces a soft contrast for those looking for a more subtle design with emphasis on depth and sophistication.
Richcliff Pavers with Copthorne Edging
Paring these pavers together is sure to create a warm color scheme for your driveway. With the rich natural flagstone textures of Richcliff pavers, along with the time-worn street brick texture of Copthorne, this pairing results in a cozy, traditional design. Impressively, both of these pavers are up to four times stronger than concrete thanks to Ultima Concrete Technology with which they are manufactured. There are many color options and combinations possible with these two pavers. Consider, for example the Richcliff Dawn Mist/Pebble Taupe Blend and the Copthorne Burgundy Red for an attractive, warm color scheme.
Artline with Town Hall Borders
Artline is an optimal choice for complementing a contemporary design. With its clean, sleek lines and smooth surface, along with its elongated, plank-like shapes, this paver choice presents a minimalist style that is ideal for creating simple driveways that nonetheless capture the attention. Pair this with the subtle ruggedness of Town Hall as a border paver and you've got yourself a beautifully balanced driveway that combines the best of both traditional and modern design. Artline’s Steel Mountain (Smooth Option) coupled with the Town Hall paver in Basalt, creates a captivating contrast that won’t overpower the facade of the home.
