once you got you land cleared back to the house site and the driveway is beening graded down to a completely level area running the length of the driveway from the turn off from the road to the garage area parking spot..
what is the standard depth of rocks on the driveway to give it the propler depth for the keeping the dirt to turning into a mud bath when it rains or after the snows in the area..for my truck is not a four wheel drive and i do not want to have to park at the front of the driveway and walk back on a gravel walkway as i seen on one person place there ..
i see a couple driveways up there that has a base of sand mix into the dirt to act as a first layer on the ground then the gravel is put down ontop of that mixture..
any info would help on this area..from what i have seen of the few driveways in my area that it seams to get chewed up a lot when it rains or snows ..
so it there a mixtured of gravel and sand to make the road better or just deal with the chewed up dirt road..
plus good drainage on each side of the gravel driveway is one of the biggest thing ..i was thinking about a 6.inchs deep trench on each side of the driveway filled with gravel mix to let the water run off into and move away from the higher unit or do i need to make the unit deep to help with the drainage ..
plus would have the drain water go into a large sized tank for use at a later time if it need would that be a good idea ..
