Driveway Envy Driveway Done

By
Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE

Back on January 22nd I shared an article about driveway envy here in The Villages, Florida, my driveway construction started Friday and as of Tuesday evening it’s done for the most part.  I heard from so many of you the past four days with questions and having interest in the project.  I have my contractor coming Wednesday to discuss the project and will interview him and it looks like I have a paver guy to add to my guy list. 

I have been very impress with his crew, the materials they used and now the finished product turned out.  Wednesday I will find out what all he does as far as landscaping and I think they call it hardscapes meaning stones, pavers etc.  If you have any questions for the contractor put it in the comment section or message me and I’ll ask him.  I hope sharing this series on paver driveways has been helpful!

P.S. expect one more picture when the sod is done.

That looks great, they did an amazing job!  Maybe it's just the video, but I couldn't really see the house number very clearly, seems like perhaps that should stand out a bit more and maybe even light up?  Unless the blue hairs aren't really out much in the night time, but I know you have parties and people will certainly want to find your house.  Of course, they will know there is a party going on by all the cars or golf carts being parked there, haha.

Good afternoon Dick,

It looks like your journey with your new driveway with pavers went well! Thanks for including us with your segments of construction. I like Brian England found the numbers of your house hard to read..was it just the video?

Dick Betts  looks awesome, when we did our house painting, we would let the Contractor put his sign up while doing it and another two weeks after it was finished so he could generate future business from the neighborhood.
