I HAD a gravel driveway......


I had a gravel driveway,
over time it disappeared.
i need a tool,
that any fool,
(or is it as i feared?)
to dig a few inches,
and bring all the rocks,
back up to the top,
(but not in my socks)
not knowing the name,
could put me to shame,
when i call up the rental store.
so what do i rent,
so my money's well spent,
and my driveway's not an eyesore?

tnkx for reading this ridiculous rhyme.... sorta....

Anyway,
How long is your driveway?
For rocks,
I'd use a tractor and a grader box.
And for Pete's sake
Do not use a rake

Rocks

That way you will build off the base
Just don't race

there's a local Joe,
(though his name is ernie)
10 yards stone for a bill and a half.
a tool rental to me,
just seems to be,
much cheaper so she won't have a calf!

DangerMouse
in front of your house
the gravel is sinking low

a gravel lane
can be a pain
especially in the snow

go to the quarry
tell them your story
ask Ernie to deliver

no need to dread it
your kids can spread it
while you go fish in the river

now here's what i dare,
move the gravel that's there,
to the surface and smooth it to level.
then rinse off the dirt,
and not lose my shirt,
(buy rocks and pay like the devil.)
now so far as the rhyming,
it's all in the timing,
(shown by gma2rjc!)
so it's all just in fun,
no need to run,
grab a coffee and simply say "wheeee!"

gravel raised to the surface
will serve its purpose
it certainly will save money

getting that rental
seems monumental
but it's sure to please your honey

you'll drive on the rocks
with none in your socks
and money in your wallet

so...something to rent
or pour new cement
it's your choice, you call it

and i don't want to fiddle,

Go to low
and you will know
The phone is dead
your face will be red
buying the rock
was not a crock
saving money
for your honey
did not work
if the phone line is higher, by some quirk

Call the company
say "come help me,
I need to know
how deep to sow
because it's your responsibility"

"You've got this fancy meter
you warm-chair lowlife greeter
I need it now
and don't ask how
and yes, I could talk sweeter"

So good luck with Ma Bell
like talking in a well
just add on top
and do not stop
or just go buy a cell

one option to consider, before adding more gravel, if you go that route, lay down some fabric. I got some they use for roads before, it will delay the stone from settling. I also tried using the "screenings" on top, never did get that "just like concrete hardness effect". It was always the small stuff got packed down and the larger size came to the top. I wouldn't dig up what you have.
