Amateur driveway layout attempt. Please critique.

mebke33July 21, 2012

Our house is on a 3 acre lot. Dimensions are 262ft deep x 502ft wide. House is a walkout ranch with 3 stall side entry garage. I've attempted to make a simple, efficient drive. We are not interested in a circle, or U-shaped drive in front of the house. Driveway will be 20ft wide off street. 20x20ft turn around pad which can double as parking for guests. Any suggestions or criticism are welcome. Thanks.

I would widen the turn area down to the dotted line in the pic.
I would consider changing the 3 inside corners to curves for a more graceful appearance. Also, I would not add the sidewalk until people walk the path for awhile and find out where they really want to walk.
