Building a feature driveway starts with a great design and professional dirt work to prepare the site. Slope, drainage, lighting and blending the driveway with surrounding walls and surfaces are all important details that need to be considered along the way.

In this example, the homeowners chose a design that featured decorative aggregate bands along the edge of their driveway and a brushed concrete finish in the middle. The aggregate provided visual appeal while the brushed finish coordinated well with an adjacent masonry retailing wall. Brushed finishes can also provide a bit of seasonal traction – a nice feature for NW Washington hillside driveways.
