1. CREATE UNIQUE SHAPES AND STYLES
The concrete can be poured in almost any shape you want – we just lay out the design and pour it in! This is one of the big benefits of pattern imprinted concrete.
You could have a straight, square or rectangular driveway to sit nicely in front of your house. Or you might want to create a sweeping curve to have a circular driveway leading up to the entrance.
You could even decide on having a wavy edge to add extra decorative features or a meandering path.
2. ADD STUNNING BORDERS & CONTRASTING EDGES
Jagged edges add a strong look, whilst block edges are a good option to define a boundary. You can even use borders to create different sections.
The great things about decorative concrete is choosing a different pattern and colour to make a border really stand out.
You might have a contrasting border running around the edge, whilst lines printed with a new pattern in the middle of a driveway separate different areas for parking and walking.
You could even choose to stain parts of the driveway to create a picture frame effect!
3. CHOOSE YOUR OWN COLOURS AND PATTERNSAs well as all the different driveway ideas you see here, if you choose pattern imprinted concrete for your new driveway, you’ll also get to choose from an extensive range of colours and patterns too! How will you design your new drive?

We have lots of ways to personalise and enhance your new driveway too, adding features that look great and which can be really useful.
4. Install new steps and pathways, up to your front door or down to your garden
Stamped concrete is a great option for creating some beautiful looking steps, and you can add patterns to the edges in any way you want. It’s really easy to add a long pathway down the side of your house in the same, or a complementing style
5. Raise flower beds around your front driveway
Some people might worry that a large block of concrete on your driveway can look boring and unattractive. But as well as colours and patterns, we have lots of ideas for adding raised flowers beds around the border and even in the middle of a new drive.
6. Include standout features or geometric patterns
Whichever way you want to customise your driveway, you can. We’ll just help you decide the best options for you. You might want to include a curved area for a planted tree or some pot plants. Maybe you’d like to include a stylish compass image? Whatever driveway ideas you have in mind, we can help.

You might want a new driveway designed and laid to provide a safe, secure place for parking – complete with gates and bollards.
It’s a great way to have a private, professional looking parking space.
Safety at night can also be important, and a well-lit driveway makes parking, unloading the car, and generally moving about in front of the house a lot easier.
Why not install floor level lighting, or concrete around some period lamp posts?
