Driveways don't have to be plain concrete. Colored or stamped concrete can also be used. Stone or brick banding can be added to accent areas or just add interest to large expanses of paving. Say "Come on in!" with an interesting courtyard adjacent to the entry. Using stone paving often emphasizes casual living or enhances a rustic setting. Using brick walls can add formality and elegance. Use stone to spruce up a concrete walk with color or decorative banding.
