This week's featured project involved renovating a concrete driveway in Ponte Vedra Beach FL. This residential driveway was not in bad shape, but the homeowners felt it could be improved both in function and aesthetics. They wanted to be able to accomodate more vehicles and also desired to be able to navigate a turn-around within their driveway so guests could pull onto the residential street safely. They were especially sensitive to keeping the soft look and curb appeal of the home without creating a "parking lot" or rigid feel.
To accomplish the task they turned to Jay Devine- a local landscape architect who specializes in residential and commercial redesign in Ponte Vedra. Jay has an extensive portfolio and with careful consideration of the homeowners needs, his firm developed a plan to gracefully expand key areas of the driveway to improve the look and maneuverability. "When dealing with a residential project of this scale, every subtle detail is combined to create a beautiful finished product both in function and style" Says Jay Devine, RLA.
The pavers chosen for the driveway are Tremron's Plaza series, part of their Classic Collection in an 8" x 12" shape. The pavers were laid out in a running bond pattern with lines that bring your eye from the curb to the home. The color chosen is Sierra, with subtle blends of Tan, Sandstone and Charcoal to harmonize with the homes base, roof and trim colors.
