3 Easy & Effective Ways to Enhance Your Concrete Driveway, Windham, Connecticut

First impressions are important, which is why your concrete driveway should look as good as the rest of your house. After all, it's the first thing that your visitors will see when they arrive at your home. If you have an uninspired gray slab of concrete for your driveway, there are a number of easy and effective ways to enhance its appearance.

3 Ways to Enhance Your Concrete Driveway

1. Line It With Plants

One of the best ways to make a driveway look inviting is to line it with plants or flowers. Choose lush and colorful vegetation to give it a vibrant feel, and opt for potted plants if you feel like changing the foliage every few weeks or so.

2. Provide Distinction With Edging

Putting some edging on your concrete driveway can make the area look neater and more presentable. What's more, it provides a clear separation between the lawn and the drive. This makes it easier to maintain the drive and prevents tires from flattening the grass.

3. Stamp Your Own Design

concreteConcrete stamping is a wonderful and low-maintenance way of improving your driveway. This driveway treatment offers limitless designs but can take on the look of bricks, cobblestones, flagstones, or slate. An overlay gives your driveway a more luxurious appearance for a fraction of the cost of other materials. While it’s often applied on new concrete driveways, stamped overlays can still be used on older driveways in good condition.
