Grand Entrances October 7, 2011
Our home is at the end of a short asphalt lane and the asphalt continues onto our property, serving as our (very large) driveway. As far as aesthetic appeal is concerned, on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best looking, I give asphalt a zero. So, suffice it to say, I have yearned to have the asphalt replaced for years.
I’ve thought of just about every conceivable surface. There are lots of manufactured pavers on the market today, but to me they all look manufactured. As if they’re trying to be something they’re not.
I’ve seen 4″ concrete squares with alternate grass squares, that I really love!
I also like cut gravel driveways. Cut gravel, as opposed to pea gravel is much more stable, as the gravel will lock together, flat side to flat side.
But while I dream of this project actually coming to fruition here at the homestead, let me show you a couple of home entrances that are out of this world…in my ever so humble opinion. As I’ve always said, “If you’re going to dream, dream BIG!”
Enjoy your weekend!
