Improving Curb Appeal with Paver Driveway and Landscaping by Bahler Brothers in CT




Driveway- Sprucing up your driveway is a great way to make the front of your house stand out from the rest and add instant value to your home. You can do this by replacing your asphalt driveway with a paver driveway.  This can take an average blase driveway and make it come alive with texture, color and design.

If replacing your entire driveway is not in your budget, you may want to consider adding a paver apron by the street or in front of your garage doors. This adds a touch of elegance to any home.

Curbing/Edging-  Curbing or edging is a great way to add a touch of class to your home.  There are different edging options including bricks, pavers and natural stone.  This element is typically installed to define the edge of driveways, walkways, landscape beds, and patios.  It also is extremely effective in keeping mulch from spilling out of its defined area.

Walkway- Adding a new walkway or updating your old one can drastically improve the look of your home. If you currently have a concrete or asphalt sidewalk that is cracked or falling apart, a new paver walkway is a definite way to make your front yard more appealing. It also helps remove a potential tripping hazard.

Landscaping- Adding flower beds and landscaping will quickly turn up the appeal to the front or back of your home. Plants are a great way to soften hard edges of a house and make it feel like it is established. Choosing a variety of plants to maximize flowering throughout the seasons, with some evergreens to give visual interest in the winter, can make a huge improvement to the front of your home.
