DRIVEWAY: 3. Do you need to accommodate wheels? If you’d like to use gravel in an application that receives regular wheel traffic, choose a type that is less prone to rolling underfoot or getting stuck in wheels, and make sure the gravel is properly installed on a compacted base. This includes gravel used for driveways or pathways and patios that you’d like to make safe for wheelchairs, strollers, walkers and wheelbarrows. For any wheel-friendly application, choose a gravel that is either very fine (like decomposed granite or path fines) or one that has a large particle size (like crushed rock or drain rock) that locks in place. Gravel should be installed on a compacted base rock and thoroughly tamped down between layers, and it can be covered with a binding product to lock the path fines or stones in place.
