1. Will the type of paver used affect the driveway surface?
There are three types of pavers and Premier Paving & Planting is experienced with them all. Brick, concrete and interlocking pavers will provide a smooth driving surface that easily sheds water off, which helps to prevent puddles. Clients that are environmentally conscious will often find that permeable paver driveways are a better option. These pavers allow water to seep into the sub- ground underneath the driveway, instead of running off into nearby rivers or streams.
2. How common are paver driveways?
In almost any neighborhood in Springfield, VA one can find paver drivers, usually designed and installed by Premier Paving & Planting. Pavers are more commonly used in the south due to their ability to withstand minor freezes and frequent thaws. Since pavers are relatively pliable they are less prone to cracking, unlike concrete. Occasionally there can be a problem with a paving shifting if excess frozen water becomes trapped underneath. If this does occur Premier Paving & Planting is more than capable of handling any necessary repairs.

Wow! How relaxing it is to come home, sit on the back patio, and listen to the new stream and look at the new pond. We did a lot of research and talked to many other landscaping companies about doing this work. We wanted it to turn out really good, but it turned out even better than our expectations.
