Planning for new driveway designs requires creativity and practicality. Planning is even more difficult when homeowners have no particular driveway design in mind. Here are a few things to consider when planning for driveway designs.
The distance from the driveway entry towards the garage or parking area highly determines the available designs you can push through with in your driveway. If the distance from the driveway entry and the parking area or garage is quite short, you might not have a lot of options but just to make a short direct route. If the distance is quite longer, there are more designs you can adopt such as circular driveway designs, courtyard driveway designs and crossover driveway designs.
Circular driveway designs are probably the most popular most especially if you have ample space. It is basically a loop, with one end coming from the street and the loop incorporating the garage or the parking area. The great thing with a circular driveway is that you can also choose several design elements to place in the middle. If you have more than one vehicle in the family, having a circular driveway might be quite tricky. Since traffic only flows in one direction, you would have to park in the correct sequence in order for the person who leaves early to get out of the loop first. This wouldn’t be a problem though if the loop is wide enough to accommodate two vehicles side by side – a problem addressed by the next driveway design.
The courtyard driveway design is another popular choice for homeowners who have larger areas for the driveway. Unlike the circular driveway design which is only limited to accommodating one vehicle at a time in the loop, the courtyard driveway design allows for two to three vehicles in the loop side by side. Like the circular driveway design, one end also leads to the street.
Another driveway design is the crossover. Crossovers have one side that serves as driveway entry, another side that serves as driveway exit and a crossover at the front of the property that serves as the garage or parking area.
