Maintaining a Gravel Driveway

It's always so important to keep up with the maintenance of my Bedford, New York farm - especially the four miles of carriage road that meander around my homes, gardens, horse paddocks, and through the expansive woodland.

My carriage roads are all covered with natural colored gravel. Over time, rain and traffic cause the gravel to shift or run-off a specific area. Yesterday, Pete Sherpa and Fernando Ferrari took on the task of adding a fresh top layer of gravel to the driveway outside my guest house studio. They edged, weeded, leveled, and then dropped and raked about an inch-and-a-half of new stone. The project took a few hours to complete, but it was an easy way to smooth and maintain the driveway and give it some instant curb appeal.
