Asphalt Paving – This material is resilient and covers the majority of paved roads in the US.  When properly   installed, it will last approximately 20 years.  It is composed of stone and sand, mixed with liquid asphalt cement (a petroleum product similar to tar or oil.)  An asphalt plant will mix in various sizes of aggregate, and heat it to      degrees F.   It is delivered hot to your home, laid down by the paver and compacted by rollers.  It will take a day ot two to completely harden.  This type of driveway is best for sloping areas and provides a durable, functional surface for sports and

Belgium Block Pavers Edging a Driveway       Belgium Block Edging –  If you want to improve curb appeal, and also provide a  clear    visual  aid as you drive in and out on your driveway – install a belgium block driveway edging.  The asphalt driveway’s edges must first be cut away with a concrete saw to create a straight edge.  A trench to house the belgium block is uniformly measured and dug out, and the blocks are installed after concrete has been laid down to stabilize the blocks.  After everything is dried and hardened, this new edge makes a terrific landscape border!
