Laura Gaskill added this to How to Give Your Driveway and Front Walk More Curb AppealFeb 24, 2014

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.

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 4 to 8) 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.
