Many towns have certain rules and permits with needing circular driveways to be on certain streets, a landscape architect will help you to properly plan for this.
For a more formal appearance, we advise our clients to go with a circular driveway landscape design. It provides the property with a more grand appearance and creates a larger focus onto the entry of the home. Piers or stanchions are often used at the entry or exit of the circular driveway landscape design on both ends to complement the formal layout.
