Is it worth it to have a gravel driveway?

Yes, a gravel driveway can be worth it. Gravel driveways have some benefits over asphalt and concrete driveways. Gravel is more affordable to install and repair, they are easier to maintain, and they can handle different weather conditions without cracking. However, if you don’t maintain it, a gravel driveway can quickly develop holes and runoff into your yard.

What is the cheapest type of gravel driveway?

Pea gravel and crushed stone are the cheapest options for a gravel driveway. These materials are readily available and have a lower cost. Keep in mind the price will still vary based on the size and complexity of the driveway.

Can I pave my own gravel driveway?

You definitely can but make sure you have the right tools and know-how. You will have to prepare the ground, spread, and level the gravel, then make sure it’s thoroughly packed down. It’s not complicated, but it’s hard work, and if you’re not 100% confident it’s best to hire a gravel paving contractor.

What is the most common gravel used for driveways?

Crushed stone is extensively used to pave gravel driveways because it’s strong and durable. It’s made by crushing larger rocks into smaller stones and it can come in different sizes. This provides you with a level of customization.

How do I make my gravel driveway look nicer?

There are a few things you can do to make sure your gravel maintains good curb appeal.

  1. Rake the gravel regularly to make sure it stays even and looks neat.
  2. Install a border with brick or timber. This is called “driveway edging.”
  3. Pick any weeds that pop through the surface.
  4. Add new gravel to replace any gravel that’s been pushed to the sides or lost
  5. Ensure the driveway is draining properly to prevent water puddles and washouts.
  6. Consider landscaping around the driveway by adding shrubbery and flowers to increase the gravel’s curb appeal.

Any of these can help maintain or improve your gravel driveway’s curb appeal. Just make sure you don’t wait too long because like any driveway maintenance, the longer you wait the more expensive and time-consuming the repair will be.

What are the cons of having a gravel driveway?

Every type of driveway has pros and cons. Some of the cons of a gravel driveway include: Snow and ice can be harder to remove from gravel, the gravel can wash away, weeds can grow through the surface, and it more easily develop potholes.
