How to lay a gravel driveway?

Gravel driveways don’t take long to install. If you have a small driveway, a contractor can lay it in a day. You also don’t need to leave it to set or settle; you can use it straight away.

Gravel is not suitable for sloped driveways. It will collect at the bottom of your driveway and could spread into the road. This would be a safety hazard and look scruffy. It would also be difficult to walk and drive on.
