Should I put some of that special fabric over the base to stop weeds

this affect the depth of the gravel? (Moves around more?)


Gravel is a cheap quick way of providing a drive, it is also not too
permanent if you want to change your mind later.

Have a good look at different sizes of gravel , on the first area I
did the size was far too big. !

If you can get a lorry load and keep some excess for topping up later
all the better.

Think how you are going to contain it at the edges.

It does need raking occasionally to keep it looking its best tho'.
