Interlock and Asphalt

As part of this summer’s exterior work, we decided to get our driveway repaved at the same time we were getting our interlock laid in the backyard.

When we made the decision to get rid of our garage in the backyard, we decided to turn that area into a patio.  By laying interlock, the area will still meet the City’s zoning requirements for a parking space behind the house, but we’ll use the space as a patio.  Eventually, we plan to build a deck that will step down onto the patio.

Once the fence posts were installed, the contractors came and laid the interlock.  And then we finally got the new asphalt on the rest of the driveway.  Things are starting to look really good out there!

Great Blog! I'm casting for a new SLICE TV show and we're looking for couples who are renovating a room in their house while trying to plan a wedding or have a baby. We might be able to help! Any chance you fit into this? IF not, would be great if you could spread the word to your fellow bloggers. Interested people should contact me at casting@generalpurposepictures.com

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Jen and Dave,
I'm loving your blog. just wondering who you used for the asphalt. We're in Toronto and really need to redo our driveway. Thanks!

Wow, looks wonderful! Good idea about having the patio double as a parking spot.

Hi Rochelle,

We used Mancuso Paving for both the interlock and the asphalt. They did a good job and we were happy with them. They actually did a few driveways on our street at the same time. http://www.mancusopaving.com/

Good luck with your driveway!
