U-Shape Driveway

Hello,


We just bought a home in Vienna, VA. It isn't grand. But, I believe the front yard has room for a U-shape driveway. In order to access the front door, I would like coverage over that portion of the driveway, so would need a portes-cochères built.

The material used for it is important to me. Taking snow into account, I am presently thinking grass pavement, because it absorbs water quickly and blends well into landscapes. I recently read about a product called Geoweb, which comes in long roles, and Grasspave2, sheets of circular spacers made from recycled plastic.

I would like to hear from you when you have a chance.

Thank you.
Sincerely,
Jackie

HI! Thanks so much for contacting me. I have never had much luck with grass pavers. Virginia is such a hard state to grow grass anyway that growing it in the cells of a paver never has been successful for me. It's such a shame because having a grass driveway is such a nice thought.
You could explore some paving contractors in your area and see how their projects look. Zoysia or Bermuda grass would be the grass to use, not fescue.
I hope this information helps!

Nancy
