What Size of Gravel Aggregate Is Best for Driveways?

• Earth Depot

Although the process might seem as simple as buying some gravel, dumping it onto your driveway, and spreading it around, there's more to consider.

For instance, did you know gravel size can make a huge difference?

What's the Best Gravel Aggregate Size for Your Driveway?

The best size gravel aggregate for your driveway ranges from ¼" – 1" because it clumps together better when a tire presses on it, so the result is a more stable and less slippery surface. It's also great for drainage, ensuring you won't end up with a pond instead of a driveway.

Understanding Gravel Driveways

A gravel driveway consists of small stones, pebbles, or rock fragments. They're particularly loved in rural areas because they're cost-effective and easy to install. With the right type and size of gravel aggregate, you'll have a sturdy driveway that can withstand the test of time with proper maintenance.
