Without the big fig trees the driveway area appears far larger as it gradually rises to the carport. A series of concrete bands divided by narrow joints of turf grass allows water to penetrate and slows runoff velocity. The concrete band at the top of the drive connects to a lateral walkway that travels across the highest terrace to reach the front door. This facilitates guests who park in the driveway—they are able to intuitively find the proper entry rather than entering through the carport to the secondary entry, which leads to the kitchen and dining area.
