Nothing is more pleasing and satisfactory than an organized layout of sandstone pavers installed on a driveway. It speaks volumes of the elegance and contemporary approach of the homeowner and very beautifully complements the wooden exterior panels.
Back in the day, rustic driveway meant cobble pavers unevenly installed in countryside homes.

A variety of crushed stones such as granite, limestone and cobble are laid down together evenly to create a leveled driveway. This driveway design is practical and has quite a naturalistic appeal to it.
