Driveways can be boring. Black or grey, asphalt or gravel or dirt. Paths for you and your car.
But they don’t have to be boring. A driveway can be a work of art leading to your home, drawing the eye into a landscaped and polished yard.
At E.R. Baisley Tree and Landscape, we’ve been creating decorative driveways for more than 25 years. We understand what materials work on what type of grade, and what will work best for your particular needs.
Most driveways in this area are asphalt. They are common here because of our freeze-thaw cycle. If your driveway was installed properly and the drainage is good, your driveway should last between 20-25 years, especially if the driveway was sealed every few years in the fall. The amount of traffic your driveway sees, and the weight of vehicles using it, also contribute to its lifespan.
Eventually, though, a driveway will need to be replaced. But how do you know when?
