Website with driveway design??

Anyone know of a website with design info, such as the minimum turn radius.
For example, if I am standing well away from a house and facing the garage door, how much space is needed to the left of the garage door, if I want to reverse out and then reverse the car to the right. Take the car as 15'-18' long maximum.
Basically, I want to maximize my landscape and minimize the paved area.
I did a google search and found a few mildly interesting things but mostly chaff.
TIA

Virtually every "main" public library, if not all branches will have one or two copies of Architectural Graphic Standards in their reference sections. Not usually for checking out, but you can make copies of a couple of pages, which will do the trick.
Maybe worth the effort, to see what you can reasonably get by with (AGS tends to be a bit conservative in space requirements and well-covers the circa '70s autos as well as more current), do a Google for parking buildings, parking equipment, etc. Also, some residential garage door manufacturers often have rudimentary layouts (illustrating backing and turning, etc.) and may be worth some Google time.
Or, you can call some garage door retailers to see if they have some data for you. Best thing, however, is the library and AGS, but remember, you can stay at the lower end of what they prescribe . . . except for differences between "curb" and "wall" clearances in turning/backing.
