3 Ways to Add Curb Appeal to Concrete Driveways, Honolulu, Hawaii

Concrete driveways are already celebrated for their durability and practicality, but with a bit of extra attention, they can become more attractive to neighbors and future homebuyers alike. Follow these three rules of thumb to improve your curb appeal with concrete.

How to Add Curb Appeal to Concrete Driveways

1. Keep the Driveway Maintained

Unsightly cracks or stains on your driveway can lead to deterioration, especially if weeds gain a foothold. Clean concrete driveways regularly to remove any oil or brake fluid that may have accumulated, and apply a sealant every couple of years to create a barrier against future threats.

2. Trim Your Lawn’s Edges

Grass and weeds that grow over the edges of your driveway may make it look neglected. Take care of your lawn, especially near the concrete itself. Use an edger as needed, and consider planting shrubs along the driveway for a more streamlined look.

3. Add an Eye-Catching Border

Concrete DrivewaysThere are many ways to help your driveway stand out from its surroundings and become an appealing feature on its own. If your home’s exterior lacks vibrant color or natural components, use flowers to edge your concrete driveway for a pleasing juxtaposition. Depending on the size of your lawn, this may be a personal gardening project or a job for a landscaping contractor. Want something that requires less maintenance? Whether they’re brick or stone, pavers can add a unique touch and solidify the border of your driveway. You may even wish to install lights on either side of the concrete to make it easier to navigate at night.
