Great hardscape to soft scape, what are the dimensions for driveway? - Did you place anything to support the car on the soft scape?

Each pad is about 36" square, with 36" softscape between, so 9' width total. We used road bed gravel or 3/4" crushed gravel below.

In the Chicago land area I would be concerned with snow removal on this drive! I love the look though.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Ribbon Driveway
With individual concrete pads, this modern take on the ribbon driveway has an increased amount of green space and facilitates water drainage.
2. The Large DrivewayThe challenge: The driveway dominates the property, taking up a significant proportion of the front garden.The solution: Rather than using solid paving or poured concrete, add a center strip of grass or drought-tolerant ground covers. Flank this with large pavers separated in such a way as to create a checkerboard with plants growing in between.This gives the effect of another border within the front garden and extends the visual green space, making the driveway less obtrusive.Although grass could be used for this, I would opt for a tough, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant ground cover, such as elfin thyme (Thymus serpyllum 'Elfin', zones 7 to 9) or miniature brass buttons (Leptinella gruveri, zones 7 to 9). Both of these withstand heavy foot and vehicle traffic, are evergreen and need neither mowing or fertilizing. Dymondia (Dymondia margaretae, zones 9 to 11) is a good choice for warmer climates.
Repair, enhance or replace? Repairing an existing driveway or path costs far less, and takes less time, than replacing it. Cracked asphalt can be filled and a new layer of asphalt added over the old. For badly cracked concrete drives and walks, however, repairing is not an option.If your existing driveway and front walk are in good condition already, consider adding a decorative edging made from brick or pavers to boost curb appeal.
