Is it gravel or crushed limestone?

There is some confusion on gravel driveways vs crushed limestone driveways. Most of the time when customers call us for gravel driveway installation or repair, it's actually crushed limestone! But, they are both very different materials. Gravel can be used for driveways, but is not ideal. It's a naturally occurring rock that is mined directly from the ground. It is screened into different products such as sand, pea gravel and #8 course L commonly called river rock(top of picture above). This makes a great material for landscape rock mulch, drainage and French drains. With its round shape it doesn't fare well for driveways but doesn't mean it can't be used in the driveway application. It does not compact and lock together like crushed limestone.

Crushed limestone on the other hand is most ideal for driveways. Crushed limestone is great for a driving surface because the material spreads easily and locks together. This is ensures a tight, well compacted driveway surface. There are many different sizes of crushed limestone to build the best driveway. surface. #2 stone is used for very deep potholes or a base layer for new crushed stone driveway installation. #53 stone with crusher dust is ideal for repairing smaller potholes, building up second layer of new driveway work. It can be used as a top layer. #53 stone is great if looking for a material that will compact tight for a hard road surface. It can get muddy in the spring, but is like concrete in the summer. #8 washed stone is what makes your gravel(crushed limestone) radiant when we are done. #8 stone is most common for top dressing a driveway.

"In 2 hours John took my large gravel parking area from overgrown, weed infested, uneven mess to level and clean gravel area. He communicated often about the timeline and came 2 weeks early. Very good price."

"John was on time, polite, very detailed description on the work to be performed, and completed the work when promised. He widened my driveway and made a parking lot big enough for my camper and 4 cars! John went above and beyond what was expected. Very pleased with Schott Services and I highly recommend and will be using them again."
