Others who cannot afford the cost of all-cobblestone driveway pavers opt to use cobblestones as borders or just perhaps part of an inlay design.

Choosing your Driveway Pavers ContractorBelow are tips that would help you hire the right professional in installing your driveway pavers:
- Expertise - Getting neophytes or newbies would mean not only disaster but also the quality of the job might not be as you would expect it to be.
- Reliability - Much that there are numerous experts, some if not all are just mere hypes as far as reliability is concerned. Always remember that trust, dependability, and reliability are foremost considerations you should have in getting contractor for your driveways.
- Cost – Higher cost does not necessarily mean quality. There are contractors out there who can provide lower cost but with quality products and service.
- Location – Always choose a driveway contractor within your vicinity. It would be easy to hear about their quality of work through nearby friends or acquaintances. If they come from other states, expect that you’ll incur additional costs since they would definitely jack up their prices to recoup transportation costs.
