Wide strips of concrete are interspersed with crushed limestone. These strips are offset, adding a softness to the design and breaking away from the expected straight route to create subtle curves. By stepping the materials in this way, planting pockets of varying widths and lengths have been created. These have been filled with an assortment of drought-tolerant shrubs, perennials and grasses with a crushed rock mulch being applied as a finishing touch. This mulch connects the plants seamlessly to the driveway itself while continuing the contemporary style and reducing weed growth.
