Temporary Fix for Muddy Driveway?


All of the snow is melting up here in Michigan and my gravel driveway has become a mud pit. The more I drive on it the worse it is getting, so I'm wondering if anyone would be able to suggest a cheap temporary fix until the ground finishes draining.

Once spring hits I will be able to put in a more permanent solution.

Thanks!

Add more gravel. If it's deep enough add bigger size gravel first then add the smaller size on top. This should give you some room for the water to drain.

Just finished spreading everything. This is actually a second drive that goes to my shop.
No more mud.
