Sealing your Driveway

Seal Edge by Hand: Avoid backing yourself into a corner by working from the top of your driveway down towards the end. If the top of your driveway meets a structure, like the garage or sidewalk, use an old paintbrush to cut in around the edge. A squeegee will be good for covering the main area, but the edges look nicely finished when brushed with precision.

Pour Sealant Along Edge: Begin sealing the rest of the asphalt by pouring a line of sealant along the width of your driveway. Those sealant buckets are heavy, so do your best not to spill excess.

Incorporate the Wall Into Your Lifestyle

Retaining walls are usually thought of as utilitarian and for merely holding back soil. But you can use them to create beautiful outdoor living spaces and incorporate multi-use spaces.

Add cap blocks to the top row of a block or stone retaining wall. You can add a layer of masonry adhesive to hold them in place, then back fill. Or you can backfill as you go, then add the cap. Either way, it provides a nice finished look, much like edging added to a paver patio.
