What is a concrete driveway?

A concrete driveway is a paved road with a wooden sidewalk or path over it. When a homeowner builds a concrete driveway, they usually use stakes in the ground to anchor the concrete to the ground. 

If the homeowner then plants a species of tree or shrub that is similar in color or growth form to the stake, the concrete driveway can be considered a walkway.
