Crushed Gravel Driveway and Parking

River rocks were delivered and spread early in the morning last week, and we had a little problem, actually two. One: wrong rocks. We had specified crushed gravel and these round rocks were uncomfortable to walk on as compared to the 3/4" crushed gravel rocks that interlock and pretty much give you an even and flat surface. Two: while hauling the load of rocks up the driveway with heavy machinery over a dozen pavers were destroyed, cracked under the weight.

The next day all the rocks were scooped up and removed and the new crushed gravel was delivered promptly, this time from the top. New pavers were ordered and should be arriving later this week from Canada. And if you look closely you see that in the meantime the hedges were planted too.

And here they are. Beautiful privets, 40 to be exact, lining our property toward Main Road, and of course the finished crushed gravel parking area that we love.

Then Saturday night the wind came, strong winds I have to say which are not that unusual here near the water and some of the privets fell over. Something needs to be done about that.
