Cost of driveway & walkway

We have a split level house with a two car driveway. I'm considering having the driveway and steps replaced. Driveway with asphalt and steps with a durable stone/paver.

Any recommendations? Anyone know what the approx price range would be? I know we will have to get estimates but just curious if it's even in our budget.

TIA!

We just had our stop, walkway and driveway (1 car) done. We have a split as well. We also had them do retaining walls on either side of the stoop. We used Dr. Pavers and they did a great job. We paid over 12,000 mostly because we used cultured stone and bluestone steps. Basic pavers would be less and if you dont do retaining walls it would also decrease the price. We had some estimates come in at 10,000.

We paid $7,150 for:

new paver walkway to house with 2 steps
belgian block border
new sidewalk
new double apron
blacktop driveway
new dry well
new retaining wall by side gate with flower box and 2 steps

we have used them for 2 more paths and we are using them to do the pavers around our pool. They are very reasonable, get the job done fast and do good work.

Re: Cost of driveway & walkway

For the driveway it's easy. Add up your total square footage.

Budget $3-4 per square foot for blacktop
$6-8 for concerete
$11-15 for pavers/bricks

Steps are another story and really vary depending on what you are doing, like if you have to replace the foundation and have to get a permit.
