Your driveway is the first thing you see every morning when you leave for work and it’s the last thing when you get home. It’s also the first thing anyone sees when they come over, so it’s good to make a first impression. Whatever the reason, there are a lot of ways to customize your concrete driveway.

A lot of homeowners don’t realize that they can personalize their driveway. Stamped concrete has all kinds of aesthetic options that you won’t get with other materials. Here at JDW Quality Landscape & Design, we can use colors and stamps to give you a concrete driveway you’ll love. It’s even possible for us to make your concrete look like other, more-expensive materials like flagstone or brick!

Benefits of a Concrete Driveway

Since it’s the front of your home, your driveway can be a way to bring in buyers and increase curb appeal. The pros of a professional driveway don’t stop there, though:

  1. Concrete is a sturdy material that’s built to last. That’s what makes it perfect for your driveway, because it can handle your vehicle and bad weather. Proper maintenance and sealing it will extend its lifespan, too.
  2. We mentioned it earlier, but concrete driveways have a surprising number of aesthetic options. We can help you choose the right color and style to fit your personality and home.
  3. If you want the look or texture of other materials, like pavers or brick, without the cost, concrete might be perfect for you. 

In case you’re not familiar with concrete pavers, there are a lot of differences between them and stamped concrete. While pavers can create a pattern, they take a lot more intricate work to put in. 

Pavers are also known to shift as the years go by, because they’re not set the same as concrete. With that spacing, weeds can start to poke through and cause a nuisance.

There’s also asphalt, which lacks the aesthetic variety of concrete. It can hold up as long as you’re willing to put in more work. Unfortunately, asphalt costs more now than it used to.

This affects the installation cost, so asphalt has some downsides. Your concrete contractor can install your driveway to resemble pavers and be as strong as asphalt.

 When JDW Quality Landscape & Design, LLC works for you, we’ll seal your concrete and give you the best first impression. Give us a call at 443-QUALITY today to get started!

Put Your Best Foot Forward with Concrete Designs

A major factor that you might want to consider for your concrete driveway is the aesthetic. We’ve touched on it briefly, but you’ve got a lot to choose from with concrete, from colors and patterns to full designs. Many homeowners choose from a plethora of color schemes to complement their house. 

Whether you prefer a dark gray, earthy tones to match your home, or multiple colors to tie in your hardscapes, you’ve got options. The only real limit to your imagination is your budget, but the good news there is that concrete is more affordable than some other materials. Still, there are a few variables that affect the overall cost:

  1. A big part of it will be determined by your aesthetic decisions
  2. How large is your driveway?
  3. How thick will the concrete be?
  4. What kind of shape is your property in?

Keep in mind that most concrete driveways fall around $10 for a square foot, so the average residential one is somewhere around $6,000-7,000. However, concrete is built for longevity, so you won’t have to worry about the short-term problems that other materials can have. Plus, you get to design the perfect driveway!

There are all sorts of things you can do to personalize the front of your house. You can add a colorful border to bring out flora in your yard, for example. You might also want a pattern in your driveway, though we can smooth out any seams if you want it to look more like natural stone.

To add flair, you might just want to stamp the concrete in sections rather than the whole driveway. Not only can this give you a unique look, but you can save on materials and labor. If you already have a concrete driveway and want a fresh start, we can help with that, too! All we have to do is resurface your driveway with an overlay of stamped concrete.

Whatever you want, we recommend choosing a color scheme and pattern that brings out the best in your home. Different builds and architecture look better with different tones, which our professionals are happy to help with. You can go with a multi-colored driveway or keep things simple for the aesthetic and savings.

If you’re wondering about patterns to use for your stamped concrete driveway, here are some of the most-common ones lately:

  1. London cobble can make you feel like you’re walking the streets of Britain.
  2. Rough stone is just as the name suggests.
  3. For something more intricate, you might like the European fan design. This look is curved outward in half-circles.
  4. Maybe you like slate, but want it to look rougher. If that’s the case, sanded slate is popular.
  5. Another frequent choice among homeowners is the stamped medallion. There are different images to be picked from, so you can go with one that fits you.
  6. If you want more of an accent design, we can border your concrete driveway. You’ll have all kinds of options, from leaves and swirls to geometric styles.

Popular Trends to Personalize Your Driveway Contract

Once you’ve decided to get a concrete driveway, there are several ways to make it your own. The options don’t end once you’ve chosen the style of concrete you want, which is another reason to hire us. We know the current trends in driveways, but here are some of the top ones for you to consider before you call:

  1. Time has a way of affecting things and your concrete driveway is no different. While it’s a solid material, you might find cracks over time, especially if you have pavers or bricks. Getting those cracks filled and having your driveway sealed again can breathe new life into it.
  2. Proper maintenance is always a good start. Letting dirt or grass make your driveway look grimy is never a good impression, so sometimes it’s nice to just freshen up. You can do it yourself with a power washer or hire someone to do it, but you’ll be happy when your dirty driveway looks good as new.
  3. If you’ve had your driveway for a while and want to add something, staining might be in your future. There are several stains to choose from and you’ll get to pick between acid- or water-based. Just make sure you clean oil and previous coating off of your driveway first and seal any cracks.
  4. Whether or not you got a stamped border when your driveway was installed, you might consider a physical border. Having a border of pavers or brick that complement your driveway’s color scheme can be a cool design.
  5. Just like the patio in your backyard or your home’s interior, lighting can add a lot to your driveway. There are all types of lighting to choose from, with the added benefit of being able to see better. Having more security is never a bad thing. You can use solar lighting, lights wired to your home, or automatic lights. Advanced lighting lets you choose to have lights built into your pavers border or line your driveway with light poles. Whatever lighting you’re looking for, there are always multiple options within your budget.

If you’re not quite set on concrete or want to change it up after years of a concrete, we know the other materials well. Pavers have numerous colors and sizes for you to pick from. They can be installed in different patterns and shapes to give your driveway a specific appeal. You might not know that bricks also come in many colors for a solid driveway enhancement.

Something we see more in rural settings is a gravel driveway. They require little upkeep and gravel’s more affordable than other materials. A big part of that is because it’s relatively easy to install yourself, though we always suggest letting a professional take care of things. Otherwise, you might do a lot of work and spend a lot of money that you’ll end up having to fix.

More Concrete Solutions


Ideas to bring out your driveway aren’t always exclusive to the driveway themselves. You can use your yard and surrounding space, too.

Landscaping decision like planting flowers along the driveway can add color. Different flowers last longer, like perennials, while others grow slower.

There are also some, like the annual, that come in many colors for whatever aesthetic choice you want to make.

If you’ve got a mailbox on your property, you can also use that to your advantage. You can match the style of your driveway to the structure of your mailbox.

If it’s got a specific architecture or material, you can go from there. On the other hand, we can use stamped concrete or pavers to resurface your mailbox.
