There's a perfect, inexpensive solution for rural driveways that have become worn and bumpy. In many cases, that solution is chip rock.
It is the least expensive way to have a level driveway, one free of mud, washboards, and potholes, and one that is easy to maintain.
After grading the existing surface, laying chip rock down with a chip spreader allows for an even coat of rock along the driveway.
Much later you can put additional chip rock on top if needed to refresh it.
Sometimes it's best not to overthink it, or overspend on it.
Texas has it's share of extreme weather. The heating and cooling of the ground through the seasons along with rain and vehicle traffic exaggerate any soil issues under country roads and driveways.
Simply put... over time, country roads get bumpy.
A Celina, Tx rural neighborhood asked us for help after the roads into their properties became too damaged. Leaving and getting home everyday was a jittery, jaw clambering experience, one where bumps were jarring and uncomfortable.
As if that wasn't enough, the driveways were long, and the roads even longer.
Grading the roads and adding material to it was a cost effective way to put homeowners at ease, without the expense of installing new private roads. Many residents took the opportunity with us out there to upgrade their driveways as well.
Homeowners in this private rural neighborhood of Celina, Texas went from buying replacement shocks for their cars, to enjoying a leisurely country drive home.
