Tar and chip driveway. This has an upscale look with the cobblestone edging. The raised curbing will work great. And although I like the look of the triple border, I would imagine this will take some upkeep.
Tar and Chip Driveway from Atlanta Tar & Chip Paving, also known as Chipseal, is a cost effective, yet attractive, driveway paving option. The Tar & Chip method combines asphalt and stone to create a textured hard surface. The end result is a driveway that provides more texture, giving the look and feel of traditional gravel but is much stronger and durable and will blend with the natural surroundings.
The Beth Chatto Gardens - Woodland Garden. The Beth Chatto Gardens began in 1960. From an overgrown wasteland with poor gravel soil and boggy hollows, it has been transformed into an informal garden harmonising with the surrounding countryside. The gardens are an inspiration to anyone who visits them - the art of planting at its best.
