Grassy driveway

Hey there!

I wonder if anyone is re-doing their driveways to look like the old ones...two strips of concrete with a path of grass down the middle. Though this is the "old" way of doing this doesn't it make green-sense to do this? It catches water and less will run down to the street at the very least. Just wondering what folks think. Seems to make sense.

New driveway got cut from our plans this year. Originally wanted to do the beautiful cobblestone pressed concrete.

We are considering something like this:

Ecogrid with grass growing in the centers. Would be great in the summer, must less hot that our current blacktop driveway. Not sure about the winter. Still researching.

That looks really interesting. I would wonder too how the snow and ice is on it. It actually seems like ice wouldn't form evenly and would be easier to break up when I think about it. If you find out more, drop a line here.

Thanks for sharing!
