what is the thickness of the pad, you may want to regrade the driveway area then add your driveway slabs.

Thanks. Regrading is where i am struggling with and still searching for video tutorial . do you know where i can  find a good and simple resource to learn that ?

The pad is very thin 'slab' so to cut through the earth. Isnt' that what it does?

you'll find that most people have some troubles with the site work capabilities with revit. Pad is probably the least liked of these tools but it can be rather useful. Generally, I will use pad as a base 4" thick but not always. Here is a set of tutorials for site work I have not reviewed them all, but I hope that they will be helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZA7Zsz8zFg I started with 2008 Revit and at that time they had published books, User's Guide. I prefer books usually to videos and books in the software because you can flag them and write in the margins "Old School". To do grading work on your site look for the term Graded Regions. Hope this helps. Revit has a very steep learning curve, but can be very satisfying to get it right.

Pads are an interesting object. They have thickness, material and a relative level. 
You can use the pick walls or sketch methods to outline the footprint.
Pads can also be Sloped. 
They can add material or remove material.
The big trick is to get it to do what you want THEN turn the visibility of the pad 'off'. It will still removes / adds the material from the toposurface while it's visibility is turned off.
There are 100's of REVIT videos here > http://www.myvbooks.com/cadclipsstore/stores/1/index.jsp 
Search on the left to see a list of tutorial series that include 'pad'.
You can also view a tone more free videos on this page > http://www.cadclips.com/FreeCADclips.htm
