It is important to consider that you will need to add more gravel every two to four years, particularly if you have a sloped driveway.

The different types of gravel that are available make these driveways a very attractive option.

What is interesting is that there are actually three sizes of gravel that will be used in the entire process.

The #3 stones for the foundation for the project, and allow for great drainage. Then on top of the base, crushed rocks that are the size of golf balls are placed, which are referred to as #57 rocks. Finally, the top layer of your gravel driveway I made up for marble sized rocks. Depending on the type of stone that is used, your driveway can appear to be black, gray or even rust.
