What gravel should I use for my driveway?

Crushed gravel is ideal for driveways, as it’s easy, affordable, compacts easily, and prevents shifting and is easy to maintain.


How long will my gravel driveway last?

Your gravel driveway should last 3-5 years on average, and if maintained regularly, can go as long as 10 years.


How do I maintain my gravel driveway?

Much depends on your driveway and how many slopes and curves it contains. You may need to add some stones to maintain smoothness based on drainage patterns... Regularly herbicide treatments are a must to keep weeds from sprouting.


What kind of gravel is best for landscaping?

Round gravel is better suited to landscaping projects, as it allows water to drain easily.
