Afternoon all - the time has finally come for me to sort out our front driveway. We've lived in the house for 3 years now and my wife parks on the front grass and it's starting to feel all a bit too pikey. I've only got a streetview image from before me moved in (The area has been tidied up massively since the Google Streetview picture was taken); The area is 6m*2.9m. Ideally we wanted to extend the block paving across but the few quotes we had about 18 months ago just came in too expensive for it to be worthwhile (we're planning on moving in a few years and my wife hasn't minding parking on the grass). The main reason for getting it sorted is just for it to look nicer. With all of the above taken into account and my preference for making it look nicer for as little cost I think we've decided to put gravel down. Plenty of other houses down the road have gravel driveway so it won't look out of place, it should be cheap(ish) to complete and won't take much time. What am I looking at to gravel the area? I'd like to do the work myself (or with friends) over one weekend and think I've got a rough idea of the plan; Day1 - dig out existing soil (roughly 20cm deep), have soil (3.5m3) collected by 'grabber truck' Day2 AM - lay hardcore down (10cm) Day2 PM - have MOT Type 1 delivered from GravelMaster, rent whacker and compact down to fill 4cm-5cm and gaps Day2 PM - lay gravel into gravel holders which fills remaining 5cm-6cm Anyone have any tips or advice? I'm unsure of how to get rid of the soil at the moment as that seems like it's going to be very costly? Rough man maths seems to suggest - 6m*2.9M*20cm = 3.5m3 Each Travis Perkins bag is going to be roughly 0.5m3 so I'd need rougly 7 bags across all 3 materials. Cost roughly of £370. TL : DR - looking for cheap way to make driveway look more presentable, landed on gravel - am I doing it right?
