To repair potholes, cut the walls straight down with a shovel. Partially fill the hole with loose, course gravel and tamp it down. Fill the remainder of the hole with the same gravel used on the driveway and pack it down with a tractor.
Each spring and fall, dress your driveway with a fresh layer of gravel. The pieces of crushed stone on a driveway should have pointed edges, not rounded, in order to pack together tightly.
With a front loader, spread the gravel along the length of the driveway and smooth it out to create a slight crown in the center. Make sure the crown is at least one inch higher than the edges for each four feet of width. This will ensure proper drainage and will prevent standing water.
All fields are required.
