Turning Your Dreams Into Reality
Creativity. Craftsmanship. Pride.
If you have a driveway, then you know that it is an important part of your home. The way your driveway is designed can have a dramatic effect on how your home is perceived from the outside.
It’s what we call ‘curb appeal’. Lee’s Landscaping and Design, the Minneapolis landscaping experts, has been designing driveways for over 9 years. We specialize in driveway design and construction that is durable, attractive and adds value our customers’ homes.
Driveway Design Considerations
All Driveway designs are not equal – and neither are driveway designers! There are some main areas to think about when designing your driveway. Driveway design is also not a D-I-Y job; it requires the work of an experienced professional.
Here are a few things that we keep in mind when designing your driveway:
- Driveway Design and Width
- Your Overall Landscape Features
- Driveway Distance (Length)
When we embark on designing a driveway for a customer, we think about things other inexperienced landscape companies don’t, such as if you need extra parking for visitors (speaks to width) and how the driveway will flow with your home’s landscaping.
Top Quality Materials
Perhaps the most important aspect of designing your driveway will be the landscaping materials used.
Use the wrong materials, and the driveway will look cheap and out of place. Use the right materials, and your driveway will dramatically enhance the look and feel of your home’s entryway.
During your consultation, Lee and his team will work with you to decide on the materials that best fit your taste and budget:
- Loose Stone
- Concrete or Concrete Pavers
- Natural Stone
We will also advise you if using edging is the way to go or not. Its nuances like this that makes all the difference – and it is here that experience counts.
