Driveway Help


No offence intended, but you've obviously been too pampered. There is nothing worrisome about that driveway. If you are planning on re surfacing it,
I wouldn't spend a cent on it now.

ALL short sale houses are neglected - IF the owners had the $$$, they wouldn't be losing their homes,,, this place has been neglected for years,,, short term, get some GABC & fill the holes then compact it,,, make certain the slope allows water to runoff & NOT seep into the ground.

there's plenty of dirt driveways up there that still work well

This is a fine mix that is easy to spread out by hand and
sticks well enough to get you through the winter.

Sorry... I guess I overreacted a bit
I will leave it the way it is, and will re-do the entire thing next.

Thanks guys..
