Home Renovation: Gravelling the Driveway

Garden Projects, HOME RENOVATION

Ourselves. Thats right. We are gravelling the driveway ourselves. If I would have known how heavy gravel *actually* was I may have reconsidered this choice. Yes I know we ordered 4 x 850kg bags of rock however I think I was so caught up in the end result that I forgot about raking and moving it. We also believed naively that we would be able to cut the bags as they came off the truck and the truck would be able to empty them in the middle of the driveway but nope. On delivery the bags actually get placed on the edge of the driveway so that the gravel gets scooped out. I am leaving that sentence there as a strong reminder in case I think about doing the same at another house. Even my husband who is no stranger to a little heavy work said that it is in fact, good graft.

On top of the gravel delivery I also purchased some flowers to line the outer border that I wanted to leave in as a bit of decor and bark to lay on top. I now can’t wait for each plant to grow to really fill it out in the purple shades I have chosen.
