Driveway Envy Part 3

By
Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE

Back on January 22nd I shared an article about driveway envy here in The Villages, Florida and I discussed painted and paver driveways.  Many of you commented or reached out to me about more information as I started our new driveway journey.  The project has started and we are on day two.

Day one was demo day and by afternoon they were hauling in the base and spreading it and started compacting and leveling the driveway.  Day two is more leveling and compacting and starting to actually lay the pavers.  When I met with the contractor I told him you know what you are doing so design a beautiful driveway.  He lit up and smiled and said this is the type of project he loves.  Sometimes customers tell them designs even drawings we decided to let his creative mind work.  I learned the difference between Herringbone and Basket Weave, shapes and borders.

This crew is amazing and how fast and carefully they place each paver.  Let’s see what day three brings as the driveway takes shape!
