Concrete driveways. The words used to invoke images of plain, straight, crisp, and— dare we say it — boring driveways. Pristine but bland.
Nowadays, concrete driveways inspire images of a smooth, personalized, unique structure leading to your home and garage. They continue to grow in popularity with landscape designers and homeowners across the country opting for clean and customizable concrete vs outdated and lower quality asphalt.
Whether you are building a new property or looking to replace an existing driveway, Big Easy Landscaping has everything you need to create a unique, personalized concrete work of art that you will enjoy and utilize for years to come.
Concrete is a versatile, durable material, made to withstand some of the toughest storms and conditions Louisiana throws our way. Even so, we understand that selecting a material for your driveway can be a difficult task.
With so many options to choose between, you must weigh several options, ranging from durability to aesthetics, and budget.
To help with your decision, we’ve compiled a list of benefits for choosing concrete.
Your concrete driveway can be enhanced in a myriad of ways to better complement the other outdoor features or your home, landscape or garden. From colors to engraved patterns or stamped designs, your concrete can be transformed from the typical gray slab into a work of art and admiration.
Our teams are supplied with state-of-the-art equipment to stain, dye, stamp, imprint, or engrave your concrete. With a little help from our team, your driveway will be the envy of the neighborhood.
Concrete is extremely low-maintenance. You won’t have to spend hours on your weekend or days off to clean or clear off your driveway’s surface. When using a smooth-slab style, you have even less work to consider! Best of all, it is also durable and long-lasting, meaning you won’t have to deal with cracks, sinking, and having to “patch” it as the years go by like you would with lesser quality materials (such as asphalt).
High-quality concrete isn’t exactly cheap, but it still beats out most of the competition when it comes to driveway materials. While some contractors will cut costs by choosing cheap concrete mixes that risk cracking shortly after install, Big Easy Landscaping is dedicated to providing the most bang for your buck. We won’t cheat you quality to save a dollar, and you’ll end up with a driveway you can be proud of for years to come.
Concrete driveways can be shaped, patterned, and colored to match your unique aesthetic.
Stamped Concrete— Also known as ‘textured concrete.’ Our landscapers can imprint shapes on your concrete to make it look like paving materials such as slate, brick, tile, wood, and more! Obtain the distinguished look of these materials while benefiting from the durability (and cost) of concrete.
Colored Concrete— Big Easy Landscaping offers a plethora of color options to choose from. Our teams use several methods to attain these colorations, though the most popular is to stain the concrete.
Engraved Concrete— Once your concrete is dry and set (or if you’re looking to refresh an existing driveway), we can use state-of-the-art tools and equipment to engrave designs, we engrave designs into the concrete. This unique approach to your driveway will last for years to come while adding a more personal touch.
Exposed Aggregate Finishes— Tried and testes, this more traditional style is still loved by many homeowners. Our teams are highly skilled in this particular method! Bits of sand and gravel are mixed in with the concrete in a manner that creates a classic, textured driveway.
Sawed/Grooved Patterns— These are two other options we offer to enhance your concrete driveway. If colors or engraving aren’t for you, talk to us about our use of patterns and how these can be used to create a driveway to perfectly fit the rest of your property’s aesthetic.
