Asphalt four feet wide pitched away from garage. Removable metal grates 2 ' x 3' in front of door. 1' x 8' in front of each garage door. Then hard pack or ledge pack for driveway and walkway over heavy duty weed block.

You can do a custom design with brick and stone. Not cheap, but looks awesome.

They can do some really neat stuff with stampcrete these days. My boss had his parking pad in front of his garage done with a really low profile worn wood plank pattern. And I believe it was even dyed to match his trim work. It’s freaking sweet. Nice garage!

they can also do neat stuff with pavement, making it look like bricks and or different designs in it
I like the idea of gates out in front,
have to ask yourself , how pretty do you want it, or how durable?
and how do you plan to move snow off it
plow, snow blower, shovel?

what ever you do, I strongly suggest doing a very good BASE, so it doesn';t shift., lift or crack what ever you put down from freeze thaw/frost lines!

up my way many hire the cheapest big, and get this base or NONE at all, and then a winter to 2 pass and things lift, crack and just end up re doing, spending a LOT more $$ than if done right the first time!

sweet looking building.
Do you run studs?
Are you worried about stud lines?

My brother has a prestudded track but we have dollies to protect the concrete


Thanks for the ideas
