Depth of Crushed Asphalt


I am adding crushed (reclaimed) asphalt to our driveway. There is already a solid and compacted base of gravel. Our driveway is connected to an alley which used crushed asphalt. I was curious how deep I should lay the crushed asphalt? Obviously this will be needed to determine the total amount.

Would 2 inches be too deep? Or should I just put down an inch or so?

I don;t think you'd need more than 2" (compacted)
