Plants for future driveway beds

    Haha, that's ok ? Yes, you've got it spot on. We own the whole lot. The current gravel bed is easily big enough to take our car and I think could fit two small ones at a push, we just can't get down the sloping verge without it scraping our car as it's quite low to the ground. We will be getting a car more suited to a family with two children (three door suzuki swift is amazingly not working out so well) so we'll make sure to get one high enough off the ground that we can get down there. 

    My idea was to get rid of everything currently there and start again. So yes, a double width driveway with a border on each side. If no steps then would just have to walk down the slope past cars. I dont have measurements, but there is room for two cars to park lengthways on the road roughly corresponding to the width of our drive.

    Got it now. I thought it was only the stepped bit you were talking about!
