gravel road

While I'm (somewhat impatiently) waiting for our planning meeting to take place, Dave is busy behind the scenes. One thing he's currently researching is the cost to put a road into the development. There are two options for the finish- gravel and pavement. We are leaning towards gravel. I looked online to find information about both.


Gravel Driveways

Pros:

  1. Easy on your budget. Gravel is one of the most affordable surface material options available.

  2. Easy to maintain.

  3. Diverse style and quick installation

Cons:

  1. Ruts and sinkholes may form.

  2. It can be dirty, particularly in summer.

Concrete Driveways

Pros:

  1. Flexible in extreme climate conditions (very strong).

  2. Long lifespan.

  3. Clean surface.

Cons:

  1. Costly to put in.

  2. Costly required maintenance due to breakdown.
