5 Distinctive Driveway Entrance Designs With StoneBy admin
Tuesday, 24 September 2019
Driveway landscaping can be a tricky project, even if you have the perfect design in mind for a driveway that you know is going to impress.
Whilst there is a lot that you can do with driveway borders and decorative plant features, that still leaves you with the task of creating the most impressive and functional driveway entrance.
For a touch of inspiration to help you make a statement of your drive design, we’ve put together four drive entrance designs with stone – the ultimate material for a driveway entrance that is designed to stand out!
Design One: Grand Pillars
Nothing quite screams ‘grand’ like a stone pillar. The simple design feature delivers a serious punch when it comes to establishing a standout driveway entrance.
From smooth stone pillars topped with lanterns, to those made from brick to create a strong but effective contrast to beautiful garden fencing, if you’re stuck for entrance ideas, two stone pillars are a great place to start.
Design Two: Decorative Stone Copings
Every attractive stone wall deserves a decorative coping, so if you’re thinking about designing your driveway entrance with a short or tall stone wall, it’s worth paying that little bit extra for coping stones.
Coping stones are a beautiful addition to the top of stone walls and they also help to protect the wall from weather damage, so it’s a win-win investment!
A stone monolith, stone fountain, or even large polished stone spheres can create a statement beginning to your driveway, giving it an aura of utmost distinction!
Design Three: Stone Wall with Balusters
Balusters are commonly seen on staircases and railings to provide support in a very decorative way; combined together to form a balustrade, if you’re looking for something that makes your entrance stand out then they’re an excellent option.
A decorative stone balustrade used to top a small stone wall will create a driveway entrance that looks very beautiful and elegant in an understated way.
Design Four: Stone Feature Decorations
If you want to go in a different direction to stone walls or pillars, then stone decorative features might be one of your best options for incorporating stone into your entrance design.
A stone monolith, stone fountain, or even large polished stone spheres can create a statement beginning to your driveway with a true difference. You can complement the design of modern homes with stone water features or play with the traditional design of a property and add stone sculptures – there is a lot of room to get creative!
The natural stone choices available resemble the appearance of decorative smooth gravel, but unlike a standard gravel driveway where they wouldn’t be suitable, the process of creating a resin driveway makes the small and delicate looking stones absolutely perfect
The Perfect Stone Driveway for The Perfect Stone Driveway Entrance
To provide the perfect compliment to a stone entryway, there are few better choices than a stone driveway. However, to design a driveway to impress, just any old stone driveway won’t do.
A unique approach to creating an impressive stone driveway is to install a resin driveway. This type of driveway looks very different to what you might to be the standard stone driveway, but it is still made out of stone.
Resin bound driveways are comprised of thousands of small aggregates, or depending on the size of your driveway, millions of stones.
The natural stone choices available resemble the appearance of decorative smooth gravel, but unlike a standard gravel driveway where they wouldn’t be suitable, the process of creating a resin driveway makes the small and delicate looking stones absolutely perfect.

Constructing a Resin Driveway: The Lowdown
Resin driveways are built on a strong sub-base of concrete or tarmac, before being completely transformed. By combining clear resin with one of the wonderful stone varieties available, the surface of the driveway can take on a modern appearance or a traditional one – making it perfect for your chosen stone entrance design.
Of course, it’s not looks alone that make resin a wise choice for a driveway surface, the additional benefits of a resin bound driveway include:
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Not prone to weed growth or cracking
- Creates a permeable surface that allows for great natural drainage
- Can be easily customised with tree pits
- Created with eco-friendly material
- Strong and very durable surface
- No loose stones
