A tar slurry is sprayed on the asphalt before the bluestone chips are installed. The chips will need occasional raking though the year, and top-dressed with new chips every 2-3 years. During the winter snow plows must be raised so that they don't scrape away the chips.

Thank you very much. I already have an asphalt driveway and want to update it with blue stone chips. You mention using a tar slurry and then the chips. I read that you need to put 12 inches of gravel first then the blues stone chips. This seems a bit too much for my driveway would be raised a foot. Since I already have an existing asphalt can I do as you said to add the tar slurry and then The blue chips? How many inches of blue chips would be suggested?

The darker paver in the foreground is a concrete paver from Unilock called Courtstone. The banding is a granite from Coldspring Quarry, and the arc of the driveway is crushed bluestone laid on an asphalt sub-base.

Thanks for the quick reply ..One last question would this type of stone paving hold up in the snow especially with Snow removal with plows and such equipment
