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.

Hello, what is the size of the driveway arc and how far is the home from the road? Thanks

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
