The standout benefit of a gravel drivewayis cost; it is one of the least expensive options when deciding to replace your existing driveway. In an era in which the upkeep of your property is so expensive, an inexpensive option is always welcome and seriously considered. It is also a viable option should you happen to have a long driveway that would be very expensive to install concrete and maintain over the years.
A gravel driveway is also relatively easy to maintain; there isn’t a whole lot you need to worry about after it is installed. There is no need to seal it, patch it, or even sweep it to keep it clean. So if you needed an excuse to buy a power washer, having a gravel driveway is not a reason. In addition, any repairs are just as inexpensive and quite easy to do. For example, you can fix a hole in your gravel driveway by simply filling it with more gravel.
Gravel driveways also drain very well, so you don’t have to worry about standing water. However, if you stop to think about it, water that falls when it rains has to go somewhere. If you have a concrete driveway, that water could be draining from the driveway and forming puddles near the foundation of your home, which can lead to future problems and expenses.
