Need feedback on gravel driveways with cell grid systems
May 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are completely re-doing our front yard and will be installing a new driveway to replace the old 1950's cracked concrete one. To be more green we are going to go with gravel, but have read a lot about these grid systems with geotextile fabric backing. The grid system gets laid down on your subgrade and then the small angular gravel gets poured and spread on top of these cells. This keeps the gravel from moving around, but still allows the water to permeate through to the water table. Would love to hear if anyone has installed them and if you like them?
