Project Profile:

Residential Ribbon Driveway

Project Summary

The customers wanted to replace their old asphalt driveway with something that was more aesthetically appealing and environmentally friendly. They are very happy with the end result. The driveway is a play on the old style "Ribbon Driveway" (aka California driveway) where two tire strips of concrete were placed inside a grass area. Here, the whole driveway is drivable, and porous, with support from Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2.
