We wanted a concrete driveway going up to the back yard. This is for convenience such as unloading goods or groceries.
It’s also for “Age in Place”, so that when we get too old to walk up the stairs, we can drive right up to the main level of the house.
We also added a shower in the main level bathroom for this same purpose.
Hollywood strips or Hollywood driveway is not very common. We were required to “soften” up the concrete drive way, so our landscape designer Anri of ANR Design came up with it. It looks pretty cool, but it does require some maintenance. It’s also easy to drive over the grass, so we have to be careful.
