What is the smallest diameter for a circle driveway in my front yard?

Older ranch set back from the road 70 feet with a slight slope to the left of house. I need to tie in with existing driveway.

Hi! Thanks for sending the survey. Your property lends itself better to a U-shape driveway. The minimum diameter for a circle driveway is 50' which will looked cramped on your property. The fact that you have 100' across the front allows you to have an entrance at one corner of your property and an exit at the other corner. Tie the one side into the driveway off the garage. Refer to the page on U-shaped driveways for some additional information. This style of driveway looks good even if it sweeps close to the house with a short walk to the front door. Make the driveway a minimum of 18' wide in front of the front door, so cars can pass one another. The rest of the driveway width can be 12'
I hope this information helps! Thanks!
