either look nice the advantage to block paving is that if you damage a block its alot cheaper to rplace than it is to replace what would be a large section of imprinted concrete if you go for block paving you have to look after it for example every so often you need to go round the block paved drive and scrape out any moss or weeds that may have got into the gaps between the blocks and wash it every so often after you have dug out any weeds or moss and washed the drive with a power washer for example you may need to spread a bag of silver sand over the drive to keep it a1 i myself prefer block paving to imprinted concrete from the cost of replacement point of view
