3 Stand-Out Stone and Paver Choices for a Custom Driveway

Custom driveways are the ultimate curb appeal. With so many varieties of building materials to choose from, boring and giant concrete slabs are a thing of the past. Driveways can now be designed and styled to match seamlessly with the rest of your architecture and landscape layout.

Installing a custom driveway with high-quality pavers or stones creates a hardscape element that never goes unnoticed, but picking the right building material requires a bit of research. Comparing and contrasting different materials like concrete pavers, cobblestone, and flagstone makes the decision-making process much quicker so you can have a new driveway for your property in Palmetto, Parrish, and Bradenton sooner rather than later!


Cobblestones offer a ton of different design opportunities for creating distinctive patterns!

Cobblestones have been used for centuries (yes, centuries) for different architectural design projects. Its beauty and long-lasting durability have stood the test of time and continue to be a viable option for custom driveways and other hardscaping projects.

1. Geraniums

In any place north of Florida, geraniums are spring (or even summer) bloomers, they will not survive the cold winter weather. In central and south Florida, however, they thrive in our mild winters. They prefer cool temperatures in the evening and need at least 4-6 hours of sunlight a day.

These bright flowers come in a variety of bloom shapes, and they come in varying shades of pink, red, orange, purple, and white and average 1-2 feet in height. They will continue to bloom throughout the season if you remove the spent flowers, referred to as deadheading.

Is Your Local Nursery Better Than a Big Box Store?

Knowing where to buy your plants is almost as important as knowing how to care for them after they're planted. Local nurseries and big box stores often carry the same popular species of plants, but how do they match up in terms of quality?

For many, the choice may come down to price, service, and convenience, but purchasing from our local nursery in Palmetto, FL has benefits that big box stores can't offer. See why buying from a local nursery is a better option for all your softscape needs versus going to a big box store!


Local nurseries offer a wider variety of softscape options.

Buying in bulk is a practice most big box stores follow, and it's the same when purchasing wholesale plants. Big box stores will often get a volume discount for buying several bulks of mass-produced plants.
