This driveway-courtyard has two things going for it: line and rhythm. Bands of poured-in-place concrete alternate with similar-size bands of turf. You have to admit, this is way more exciting than an ordinary concrete driveway. The design transforms what would otherwise be a utilitarian driveway into a delightful, graphic auto court. The horizontal lines of the architecture play nicely with this treatment. And using bands of grass is a great way to make your driveway permeable.
