This family loves hockey and basketball. Between the tall shade trees and the barn-style garage they also love their beautiful back yard. So, when it was time for a new driveway they needed a design that would let them play the games that they love, without having a negative visual impact.
BEFORE: Country Gravel Road
The rough gravel driveway was uneven and unsafe to play on. Loose rocks made the hardscape vulnerable to erosion.
AFTER: Classic Brick Paver Driveway
Because the lines are a part of the paver pattern, not painted on, they will never wear off or need to be repainted. Paver driveways also rarely crack, and if they do it’s possible to restore driveway by replacing just the affected pavers. More attractive than mismatched patches, and less expensive than a whole new driveway.
Unique Design, Challenging Installation
Instead of white or yellow lines painted on top of black asphalt, this unique design integrates the lines into the surface of the driveway. This unique two-toned paver sport court was created by first laying out the entire surface of the driveway in traditional red brick.
Because of the large scale of the installation, it took plenty of patience and a steady hand to make the basing consistent and level. Tracing out the perfect arcs of the 3-point line was the next challenge. Once all the lines were drawn, the crew removed the affected pavers and carefully cut each brick to size.
