Guide For Aggregate Maintenance

A gravel path or drive is a low maintenance solution but will still require some TLC to keep it in top condition. We would, therefore, recommend the following:

  • Make sure the entire path or drive area and its surroundings are well weeded before the path is laid.
  • Rake and tidy up any moved aggregates on a regular basis so you can maintain an even surface.
  • Stay on top of low spots or potholes, To solve this simply widen the pothole and fill the entire area with fresh new gravel.
  • Expect to lose and replace a little gravel over time. General wear and tear can result in the redistribution of any loose gravel, so it’s a good idea to have some spare slate chippings of the same colour and size to top up every so often.
