Mine's gravel. I've been considering paving it for some time, but since it's so long, it would be hard to do....moneywise.

Concrete with pea gravel mixed in it. The home is about 2 years old, so it's still in good shape.

150' long 12' wide plus a 30' x 30' side patch of asphalt. It cost about $3k to repave a few years ago. I wish the previous owners didn't tear out the original concrete drive. I'd much rather concrete over asphalt but the cost to redo that area in concrete would be 4x as much. Pavers would be about $10K.

Concrete, with a little bit of asphalt at the very end of the driveway at the road. When they paved the road they went up each house's driveway about a foot or two.

Asphalt, 150' long. Desperately needs to be retopped and expanded since my original garage has been expanded.

When we moved to this house it had asphalt that hadn't been kept up. We ripped it out and put in concrete.

Brick. With tons of F'in weeds between each one. I recommend not getting brick because of that.
