If you have a long approach to your garage from the street, you might want to install a gravel driveway. It costs much less to install than asphalt or concrete and wears just as well. A gravel driveway, if installed properly, can last up 10 years with regular upkeep. The variation in age can be determined by the amount of slope on your drive, the amount of curves, the stability of the sub-grade and climate. Gravel driveway installation should be accompanied with drainage planning and an experienced grader to minimize maintenance.
Depending on the size of work involved, a new crushed stone or gravel drive can be installed by an experienced grading contractor generally over a 1 to 3 day period. Gravel driveway installation is relatively simple, with most of the work being done with grading equipment and front end loaders so it can be completed fairly quickly with minimal impact. You can expect to drive on and use the driveway throughout the construction of of a gravel driveway. To build a driveway out of gravel, you will need to use heavy equipment such as a skid-steer loader with a scraper blade attachment or a small bulldozer or bobcat.
