A growing number of Tucson and Phoenix homeowners are turning to driveway paving stones over traditional surfaces like asphalt, concrete and gravel for both new and replacement driveways. The reason is that paving stones provide several key advantages for those living in the area. Driveway pavers are available in a wide selection of shapes, colors and sizes which allows for a great degree of design creativity to complement Tucson, AZ homes and landscapes. They are also extremely durable, generally lasting for the lifetime of the driveway. Unlike poured concrete or asphalt surfaces that are difficult to repair when damage occurs, driveway paving stones are individually replaced should one or more become damaged. Also, paving stones can be driven on immediately after installation while poured concrete and asphalt require a “curing” period.
Driveway pavers can be more expensive than traditional options. However, the end results and benefits of using paving stones make them well worth the additional cost. Santa Rita Landscaping offers the following manufactured driveway paving stones for Tucson and Phoenix homeowners that are just as gorgeous and durable as real stone only with various additional advantages.
