Unlike concrete or brick, gravel can be installed relatively easily into a driveway without professional help. There are a few simple steps involved in getting a beautiful, easy to maintain gravel driveway.
Begin by marking the area where you will put the gravel. Use landscape stakes and twine to mark exactly where your driveway will run, and then clear that area of any grass or topsoil. Also be sure to even out the dirt where the gravel will go, and install a weed barrier, if desired.
Next, to determine how much hardpack gravel you will need, measure the length and width of the area, then multiple that area by the desired depth of the gravel to get the number of cubic feet you’ll need. You can divide this number by 27 to get cubic yards.
The next step is to order the gravel you’ll need. Talk to the supplier about getting it delivered in two or three separate rounds, so that you can properly layer them. Some gravel delivery trucks can also help you spread these layers, so ask about options for installing in addition to delivery.
The best way to install gravel is in three layers. The first layer (about six inches of stone), when spread evenly, should be packed down tightly with a bulldozer or car. You want the foundation to be as strong as possible. Then, the next two layers (about three inches of stone, and a third layer of one or two inches) can be spread over the foundation. When spreading, try to make the gravel highest in the middle of the driveway, to encourage rainwater to run off.
