I wouldn't use a paint on your deck, I'd use a Solid Stain
Looks like paint but it's a stain

I use Sikkens or Cabots for decks
I've not found any superior at this point, including Sherwin Williams and Ben Moore
Though if I couldn't get S or C, SW or BM would be OK

Your driveway...that's interesting...I don't get asked to paint those
I'll have to leave that to someone else who does
maybe someone will be along who can answer that

I wouldn't recomend paint either.
Use a concrete stain on the driveway. H&C stains are one of the better concrete stains but they do have a powerfull odor When it wears away apply another coat and it will 'melt' into the existing one = little to no chance of peeling The concrete must be good and clean [and dry] prior to application.
