This driveway has presented many problems to access the garage due to the high degree of the slope. The house was built in the 1950’s and the environmental department rules back then were not as strict as it is today. With today’s rules and regulations this building lot would not have been approved for building a residential construction because during the winter months it’s been very dangerous for this homeowner to drive up and down this very steep driveway. The installation of paving stones has made the curb appeal of this house the neighborhood talk.

The installation of Nicolock colonial coble 4 pieces random combo in Granite City blend on one inch of sand over the existing concrete base gave the driveway surface a texture for the car tires to grip and the look of a natural cobblestone pavement. The multi level retaining walls created terraced planting boxes a setting you would find on the Tuscany coast line of Italy or the Amalfi cost.
The new construction of this front yard created additional parking areas at the driveway entrance, for the home owner to be able to park the cars off the street in heavy snow storms. A Belgium block curb has been installed on both sides of the driveway to prevent cars from sliding out of the driveway in icy conditions.
In addition to this safety feature the installation of paver lights in the driveway border further helps the drivers see the edge of the driveway when backing out of the garage it also enhances the beauty of this front yard. In-lite paver lights were used for the driveway, 1 inch led lights were installed we started with drilling precise holes in the paver borders, the lights were then slid in from the bottom before laying the pavers. Each light came with 24 inches of extension wire that has been connected to the main electrical feed wire that runs on the outside of the driveway. The walls and steps were lit with Evening Star lights, the lights installed under the caps of the steps make the walking area to the bottom of the driveway very safe and by using warm white light the entire front yard turns in to a spectacular setting, functional, safe walking and driving areas. Lights under the wall caps further enhance the landscape planting beds. The outdoor lighting used in this project is only visible at night when the power is on, during the day time the light fixtures are camouflaged with the masonry brick work and the flower colors of the landscape.
