Muddy gravel driveway
We have 700' or so of long curving driveway at our newly constructed home. It was a muddy mess any time it rained, and our contractor recently put down some gravel over the whole driveway. This helped with every spot except for one low spot in the driveway where water pools up when it rains. Even with the gravel down, it becomes a muddy mess the first time it rains and we try to drive over it.
The contractors solution is to keep dumping more gravel on this spot. To me, it seems that if this spot is so low that water always collects there when it rains, the gravel will keep washing away or sinking into the mud, no matter how much is added. I think it might make more sense to build up this low spot with more dirt so it's at the same level as the rest of the driveway, then gravel it.
Can anyone help with ideas on the best way to handle this? I'd just like to end up with a gravel driveway that I can drive up and down even when it's very wet without getting my car coated with mud or risking getting stuck!
