Great Home Project: Turn Your Driveway Into A Basketball Court

One of our favorite projects, this unique driveway, was featured in Houzz.com's deep dive on home basketball courts. This classic paver driveway has a special twist: an inlaid basketball court. While pavers are an unconventional choice for basketball, they are great for driveways because cracks can be easily and seamlessly repaired.

Southview offers expertise on the pros and cons of asphalt, concrete, and pavers.
