Maintaining your gravel driveway.

When you have a gravel driveway one of the tradeoffs between it and a paved surface is the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking good. With it being crushed stone on earth you should keep in mind the possibility of weed growth—so make sure to periodically apply as much weed killer as deemed fit. Along with weeds, the cost of winter on a gravel driveway is paid off in the spring when you should take care to return any gravel that migrated from the driveway to your lawn during plowing or shoveling. Keeping up with the list of little things like this will keep your driveway looking good longer.

I had an old building that was just falling apart. It started to become a real eye sore on my property so I contacted Kitchen Excavating and they removed it for a great price. You wouldn’t even know a building was there.
