The inspiration for this Florida driveway's paving pattern was taken from the classic shapes of the parterre gardens of Versailles. The formality has been deconstructed by ArquitectonicaGEO and reassembled into a careful arrangement of salt-treated, poured-in-place concrete pavers that appear to float in a pool of crushed seashells and native coral rock.
Beautiful tropical landscaping frames the front of the HGTV Smart Home 2013. The Florida home features a covered porch, beautiful tropical landscaping, and a paver driveway to a matching detached garage.
A paver driveway leads to the remodeled house exterior. The typical garage door was transformed into a custom wooden door with a tropical influence. Above the garage door, an awning is installed to provide shade from the Florida sun.
For this bold contemporary driveway in Sarasota, Fla., panels of permeable paving extend the architecture and horizontal grid of the home while allowing water to percolate instead of running off site. The landscaping project by DWY Landscape Architects was a 2014 Florida Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects award winner.
