This month, Arbor Green Landscapes is building a small driveway at a residential property in Bethesda, Maryland. See pics below!
The surface of the driveway will be made of Hanover concrete pavers in a blend of charcoal and tan. Because the front yard of the property has a slope about 4’ tall, we will build retaining walls around the driveway, which is really more of a parking pad because of its small size (about 18 1/2′ x 12′ wide). The retaining walls will be faced with natural stone (the interiors will be made of rebar-reinforced concrete cinderblock).
When the driveway construction project is complete, there will be a set of masonry stairs leading from the new driveway to a new secondary flagstone path that leads to the front door. New plantings will be installed to soften and beautify the new car parking area.
The ability to park at least one car is a primary goal of this customer. Soon that dream will be a reality! All it took was some careful planning to avoid an existing gas line, a set of engineer-approved retaining wall drawings and a couple of weeks to shepherd the project through the Montgomery County permitting process. More photos to follow when the project is complete…
