Stone Driveway in Brighton

Paul and Fiona requested an elegant driveway and entrance of their Brighton home.
Contrasting to the shining zinc and timber façade, a darker stone was an obvious choice to use for their project. As the space was quite vast we decided to use 400x800mm bluestone pavers which in turn, helped highlight the area. A sleek aluminum edging borders the bluestone paving and ties in the zinc façade to the garden. The edging holds a well positioned Japanese Maple which draws focus to the garden in conjunction with low lying Blue Chalk Sticks and other various succulents. Kangaroo Paws were planted to add colour in the warmer months and existing tussocks were re-planted to help frame the entrance.
