Drive Way pavers question


Ok I have a question and could use some input. I'm getting ready to move into a new home(no pictures sorry) and there is a garage. behind the garage I want to make a paver drive way since there is a alley and i dont want to concrete this. I want something unique. Question is i have done walkway paver paths but when it comes to a drive way or parking pad do Is there a different paver to use. When looking at the home stores I can only find pavers for walk ways. I seen some beefy lookng ones but i just dont know. Thanks in advance for the advice

Drive Way pavers question


Buy from a mason yard not a home store or lumber yard.

The Pavers are the Same,.. You just install a deeper stronger base under them..

Actually I think the home store's pavers are thinner then from the mason supply. At least the ones in my area are, I wouldn't use the pavers from the home store on a driveway.
