A gravel driveway can provide an attractive area to park vehicles. Residents do not have to worry about unsightly cracks, chips and holes in concrete that can eventually lead to a costly re-pouring project. The gravel driveway installation technicians in our network of professionals are available to visit your property for a consultation at your convenience.
The types of stones or pebbles that can be used for gravel driveways is virtually endless, and the experts in our network can advise properties owners about the size and type of gravel they may want to use. In general, rocks that work best range in size from 6mm to 20mm. Pebbles that are smaller than 6mm are too easily moved out of place and rocks that are larger than 20mm can be difficult to walk on, particularly for elderly residents. For most pathway areas rocks, that are 6mm to 10mm work well and the larger stones that are 10mm to 20mm work better for driveways that have to support vehicles.
Average prices can vary depending on the length and width of the driveway that needs to be covered as well as the type and size of rocks that are chosen. The gravel driveways technicians who perform the installation will dig an area of at least 135mm and up to 180mm for property owners who have heavier vehicles. The next step is to remove all weeds and unwanted organic matter, apply a weed-killer to the area, lay a permeable membrane on top of the area, install restraints to prevent gravel from mixing with grass on the lawn, and finally, install the gravel that the customer selected. The end result is an attractive and easy to maintain driveway.

Gravel driveways are popular in part because they are generally easier to maintain; they do not require sealing, but rather just the periodic adding of additional gravel to fill in cracks.
To fill in holes, fill the crevice with coarse gravel and compact it. Then top it off with gravel that matches the rest of the driveway and smooth it over. Alternatively, hire a professional for a quick easy fix.
Use a larger 'clean' rock that contains no smaller rock or particles, as it will pack more tightly and produce less mud.
This will depend on the size of rock you use, the amount of drainage your driveway has and how often you drive on it. Most people can expect to add new gravel every five to ten years.
That will largely depend on how much traffic your driveway must withstand. In most cases, gravel will last anywhere from 10 to 15 years.
