Sorry- you may not have the answer-- didn't see landscaping was the topic.

My experience with loose gravel is that it tends to make a lot of noise when a car pulls over it and over time the gravel reduces; not sure whether it sinks into the soil or just gets cleaned off with cleaning of leaves and dirt over it. I would like to hear what experiences others may have with gravel that sits on cement. Thanks

my guess is that this is called "chip-seal" which is gravel on a bed of asphalt to keep them in place. It works best in non-snow areas (shoveling would pull up the stones).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Gravel Driveways: Crunching the Pros and Cons
Disadvantages1. Snow removal. For those who live in snowy climates, removing snow from a bumpy surface is a hassle, and removing the rocks that get pushed into the yard after shoveling or plowing is an even bigger hassle.
