Driveway Repair

Cheri Bednarck lives in  McAlester, OK.

She’s got a driveway issue and needs a repair.

Here’s what she told me:

“My property sits on a sandbar. My driveway has been cracking and slipping for years.

During the latest downpour a large undermining area has washed a lot of the sand between the driveway and the street.

Is there a way to fill under the driveway with gravel? I’m trying to avoid a complete new driveway for awhile.”

Here’s my answer:

Cheri, yes!

Just use large angular rocks about the size of grapefruit. It takes lots of water to move those rocks.
