Apple Landscaping Creates Charming Driveway and Driveway Apron in Arlington, IL
This breathtaking suburban driveway in Arlington Heights, IL, was created by Apple Landscaping. Apple Landscaping had a lush and spacious front yard to work with and, to match, created a versatile statement driveway that weaves graciously through the softscape, all the way to the doorstep.
A sophisticated blend of Dawn Mist and Pebble Taupe Richcliff pavers was selected for the body of the driveway. This cool, subtle color palette pairs well with the warm, vibrant hues of the surrounding greenery, giving both the driveway and softscape the ability to grab more attention. The most proximal portion of the driveway is shrouded by tall trees, and the deep blue and gray undertones within the pavers come to the forefront in the shade. The mere presence of Richcliff pavers can give any driveway a chic, sophisticated look and feel due to their similarity to natural stone.
Apple Landscaping used the warm, rich browns and reds in the body of the home as inspiration for eye-catching contrasts that add dimension to the overall landscape design. The cool Richcliff pavers are not only striking in juxtaposition to the wooden garage doors and brick siding, but also contrast the landscaper’s choice of accent paver.
Copthorne pavers in a lovely blend of three red shades was selected for the thick, prominent border that outlines the entire driveway. These pavers were also used to create an eye-catching apron that spans a section of the driveway. The apron pavers were laid in a herringbone formation to further separate the apron from the rest of the driveway and add depth to the design.
In addition to their excellent use of contrasting elements, Apple Landscaping ensured that the driveway was well-suited to the home. Its spacious layout and interesting color palette result in a warm, welcoming end product with plenty of character and a subtle, yet palpable, visual connection into the adjacent home.
