If asphalt is not your preferred choice in a driveway consider interlocking pavers. This will be the last driveway you will ever need and It is a great way to merge your front walkway and driveway into one continuous flow of stone. In some cases it is the ideal situation when your entrance falls almost on top of your driveway.
Small or large pavers, both work. Low, high or no driveway boarders, the choice is yours. Typically your home grading plays a factor in this decision or if you wish a raised garden along the edge of your driveway.
