New concrete driveway in Didsbury, Manchester
Decorative pattern imprinted concrete has become one of the most popular choices for driveways and patios in the UK. It’s not surprising as it’s long lasting and durable and with a little regular maintenance can continue to look as good as it did when it was first laid, even after several years!
There’s also a wide range of choice with pattern imprinted concrete driveways both in pattern, colour and finish, which makes the options endless and means you can choose a driveway that is bespoke to you. To many that would be the ultimate in luxury!
Lasting Impressions recently completed installing a new driveway across the front of a house in Didsbury, Manchester. Our customers opted for a driveway printed in Grand Ashlar. This particular pattern creates stones of various sizes and shapes which are laid in an Ashlar pattern with a slate texture. Our customer chose to have the concrete coloured in russet with a dark brown release which adds depth and enhances the original colour giving a subtle extra tone. You can see the overall effect of this in the pictures included.
Looking at the photographs you can also see that the driveway included a decorative pin wheel for added interest and acid stained edging which defined the edges of the driveway. We also shuttered a double step with brass door numbers in it. The combination of colour, additional imprinted pattern and edging all perfectly complemented one another and created a stunning result.
At Lasting Impressions, we don’t just lay the driveway but can also install additional features such as boarders or raised beds to complement the driveway or patio. In this instance we used sleepers to create two raised planters at opposite ends of the driveway. We also worked around an existing bush that our customers wanted to keep. Our customers were thrilled with the end result!
