We currently have what looks like really, really old and degraded asphalt. We really hate the mud on parts of it. We would like to redo it, but aren't sure what would be the best to use. We need it to be financially feasible, would like it to be something small children can ride bikes, etc. on, and since we will of course take into account "greenness" are not really sure that the standard asphalt or concrete are what we want to do. We have no idea what would be the most green. Any advice?

Could you find recycled bricks from a project where they have been torn down?
Financially, recycled products are often much more expensive than the basics, so cement is probably your cheapest bet.

Thanks! I love the bricks idea. Would've never thought of that. Can't do sidewalk chalk on it, but at least you can ride bikes on it! And I really hate concrete/asphault. From what I've found on craigslist recycled bricks are about .75-$1 a piece. So we just need to measure and figure out how much $$ we would be talking about!

If you are wanting an area for sidewalk chalk, depending on the length of your driveway, you could perhaps do concrete on part and the bricks on the other.
