All driveways, private lanes and parking areas shall be of a hard surface and may be composed of asphalt, brick, concrete, pavers, colored concrete or stone in an ARC-approved color. Materials used to create special paving patterns are subject to ARC approval. Driveways and private lanes shall be constructed to design specifications which will allow them to accommodate heavy vehicle loads such as fire trucks, trash trucks and moving vans. Walkways shall be of asphalt, brick, colored concrete, stone, wood or gravel in an ARC-approved color.
Cut and fill slopes are discouraged although when necessary stone retaining walls should be used in a material to blend with the environment and design of the home. To reduce erosion, driveway culverts with stone riprap at both ends may be required.
