After reading a previous post, ‘Where Have All The Drive Strips Gone?’, I ‘ve been more cognizant of driveway replacements.

We wanted to do it because it extends the visual greenscape. Cement isn’t very attractive. Plus, drive strips were in keeping with the original style of the home.
They are cooler, temperature wise and they are more quiant.
