We just made a green driveway, literally (as in grass) and environmentally, to allow for better use of our frontage, as well as to better link the front and backyard. We used recycled plastic grids sourced from Vancouver which prevent ruts from forming (due to the weight of the car) and allow the grass to have deep (protected, strong and drought resistant) roots. The result is a lovely carpet of lush green grass, and no big mass of asphalt or blah interlock.
The Case Against the American Front Lawn

In our new studio space we installed plywood which we white-washed on site. It was easy and affordable, and has an edgy and industrial look, without trying too hard. I love the not perfect, milky white-washed look, which also calms down the colour of the plywood. Simple to install, you just need to align your seams, aluminum screws proportionally with even spacing.
