How wide should walks and drives be in a front yard?

Drives- recommended widths

When constructing a drive for your front yard, keep in mind that the minimum width for a driveway should be 10 feet, preferably 11. If the drive also doubles as a walk, add 3 feet of width. Walks should be a minimum of 4 feet wide and at least 6 feet from the house.
