Havenbrick Driveway Pavers | 200 x 100 Paver

When it comes to your driveway, there are many options for your driveway pavers. So how do you choose the best driveway pavers? First, you need to determine a few things to ensure the paver is suited for its purpose. One thing to remember is that all driveway pavers need to be a minimum of 50mm thick.

Is your driveway steep or curved?

If your driveway is steep or curved. Not only will your paver choice be important, but so will your paving pattern. Some paving patterns are more interlocking and stronger than others. For steep driveways, they need extra strength. Therefore a brick driveway paver or an interlock driveway paver is best. The most popular and best option interlocking paving pattern is 90 degree Herringbone. As a result, over time the more compaction it gets, the stronger the paving gets.

Is water a problem on your driveway?

You may want to consider a permeable driveway option to allow water to run away from the top of your paver. At APC, we have a range of permeable pavers. Some of our permeable paving options also allow for incorporating grasses or stones.

I want a slip-resistant driveway paver.

For a slip-resistant driveway, an exposed aggregate finish paver is your best choice. These pavers not only look great but with the exposed aggregate finish provides further traction which is great for sloping driveways or if they are exposed to more water.

I want to match the driveway pavers to the aesthetics of my house.

The great thing about pavers is they come in a huge range of colours, textures and sizes. Not only this, you can create some great looks with different paving patterns. For driveways, we recommend a darker colour to hide marks and you can incorporate lighter colours for banding, diamond patterns or header courses.
