Tips For A Great Gravel Driveway

This article will give you some great tips for a professionally designed, installed, and maintained gravel driveway. You might think a gravel driveway would be easy enough to install but actually, there's more to it than you can imagine.

Hire An Installer

In general, a lot of people think a gravel driveway is not expensive in comparison to a traditional driveway but that's just not the case. If not installed correctly or you skimp on the materials you could end up with a mess on your hands. Cheap materials like plastic edging will eventually lead to serious repair issues when it starts breaking down. The following is a list of steps you should never overlook when installing your driveway:

Phase One – You need to spend money on a professional installation.

Too many homeowners believe that a gravel driveway and the materials are a lot less expensive but what they do not understand, they are installing these driveways the wrong way. Overlooking a compacted base or using cheap plastic or wood edging will lead to disaster and many problems down the road. You will be highly disappointed with the final outcome. Everything you have come to hate about gravel driveways comes from not knowing what the heck you are doing.

• First and foremost, you must excavate down 12 inches
• Lay down geotextile fabric making sure you cover the bottom and sides of the excavated area.
• Apply 8 inches of the base material, compacting in 3-inch lifts or a well-graded crusher run.
• Install your edging using anodized aluminum or steel.
• Spread a 3-inch layer of gravel.

When following these steps you can plan on spending anywhere from $18 to $38 per square foot. Using good quality pea gravel will cost less than asphalt or concrete. If your area has ruts or drainage issues or the gravel has not been applied correctly, it can move outside its borders.

Step One - Do not take shortcuts that can harm the driveway, I'd recommend going with exposed aggregate concrete if you have drainage issues and it will save on costs.

Step Two – Unfortunately, most people do not give enough thought to the edging used for the driveway. First off, edging contains gravel and will create a very attractive3 look to the border.

You should consider Belgian block edging for an impressive look. Belgian block edging is made of large blocks measuring 11” x 8” x 4”. You can place them lengthwise on top of the compacted base material along with 3 inches of pea gravel to raise the blocks one inch above the surface of the driveway when it's completed.

Step Three - Keep in mind, absolutely no driveway is free of maintenance. Concrete will need to be cleaned and sealed from time to time. Pavers will need to have weeds removed and if polymeric sand was not applied then occasionally the joints will have to be filled. There are times when asphalt will need the tar reapplied.

A gravel driveway, just like all other driveways, will have its own maintenance issues. Do not despair, with good installation techniques, you can keep maintenance way down. With yearly re-grading, you can keep your gravel driveway in great shape for years to come. These two procedures will prevent your driveway from washing away by rain or runoff from irrigation.

Step Four – Collect water using your driveway. As I'm sure you are aware, your driveway covers a great deal of ground and is more than likely the largest paved area on your property. Design your driveway so water can flow through into the underground reservoir.

You will have a layer of #3 gravel, then #57 stone which is a material similar to gravel but is a specific size of stones Most driveways are made of three types of gravel. The base foundation is made of 4-inch deep #3 gravel, the middle layer is for drainage consisting of #57 stones, and the top layer is pea gravel. Depending on the collection of water, the depth can vary. You can now collect water for various irrigation reasons.

Gravel paver systems can help to keep gravel in place. Consider the NDS EZ Roll Gravel Paver system. This system will add cost but will create a very stable and rut-resistant surface. You only need one inch of ravel spread as the grid below the gravel will hold it in place and prevent ruts. When using this system, re-grading may be needed more often to prevent the grid from showing through.

Step Five – You can prevent ruts by making the surface layer of pea gravel shallow. When the gravel is too deep, it will move the gravel around when vehicles drive over it. Keep the top layer of gravel down to 3 inches. This will prevent the movement and shifting of the gravel. In turn, this will decrease the need to regrade.

Step Six - Choose a local stone to get a color that looks natural in your area. Most regions have their own very distinctive color of gravel that are available for your use. In some areas, like Williamsburg, the gravel is dark brown and beige while heading further south, the colors are much lighter. You should select a color of gravel that is within your region for a natural look. On the other hand, if you are set on a specific color you can get it at a cost.

Step Seven - Before choosing a specific gravel, think about how it will work with your home's design. The materials you select for your driveway should reflect your home. Gravel is great for Colonial homes but might not work well with modern homes. If you are looking for a clean, crisp landscape, gravel might not be the ideal look. If you want to emphasize the classical features of your home, gravel might be perfect.

Step Eight – Let your climate speak for you. If you are considering making improvements to your hardscape, your climate should take center stage. Ask yourself if your region suffers from severe weather conditions like heavy snow, flooding, or serious wind conditions, one of the biggest problems will be your gravel driveway. Unless you know how to clear snow from a gravel driveway you should hire someone with experience.

If you are set on having a gravel driveway, take into account if your region has multiple snow events that can affect your gravel driveway. One hint, allow the first snow to pack down forming a protective layer against the movement of gravel.

A lot of hard work will go into installing a new driveway but if you listen to the of experts, it should be well worth your time. If your driveway has been installed properly, rain, heat, high winds, or snow should not have an impact on the surface of your driveway.
