A Brick and Stone Entry Walk Doubles as a Driveway

Entry walkway and driveway in Charleston, South Carolina.

Entry walkway and driveway in Charleston, South Carolina.

In Charleston, South Carolina, I spotted this newly installed brick entry walk trimmed and accented with stone–that doubles as a driveway.  In Charleston, many houses are turned on their lots so that the front door faces the side yard, with the result that driveways for cars can also serve double duty as a walkway for pedestrians.  This example, though, is among the most attractive and picturesque, and it will become even more alluring as the new bright mortar joints will mellow with age.
