Gravel driveways are very popular and in many rural areas, gravel is the material of choice for both driveways and roadways. For homes, it is not uncommon to have gravel driveways leading to concrete garage floors. Gravel is much less expensive for long driveways than most other driveway materials, and it can last for generations with regular maintenance.
Maintaining a Gravel Driveway
Gravel driveways can require regular maintenance to help ensure optimal performance and help prevent costly replacement. Potholes and dips should be filled in to prevent them from getting larger and deeper. Potholes can be repaired with hand tools, but regrading requires heavy equipment, such as a tractor with a bucket and grader, to grade the surface and spread and compact fresh gravel.
How Long Will a Gravel Driveway Last?
With proper care and maintenance, a gravel driveway can last up to 100 years. The beauty of gravel is that it can be repaired and replenished on an ongoing basis. Gravel is also less vulnerable to damage from seasonal freeze-thaw cycles, or frost heave, which can cause significant cracking and settling in solid driveway materials.
