My new concrete driveway is now higher than the yard. Any cheap landscaping ideas to make it look better?

In some spots it's only 2", but in others it's 4" higher than the yard. The driveway is 200' long and has some curves in it.

Details:

  1. I'd probably put mulch along side and plant low growing ground cover such as pachysandras.
  2. Planting some low level evergreen bushes to draw your eyes away from the edge of the driveway would help. Planting evergreens will provide a draw year round.
  3. I would probably put in some sort of edging and a pea gravel with a gradual slope to even things out. You could plant some flowers every few feet, of varying heights, to add dimension.
