The importance of keeping your gravel driveway free and clear of weeds

gravel driveway

Do you have a gravel driveway? As you may know a gravel driveway can be an inexpensive alternative to an asphalt or concrete driveway, however it can also present some problems that other driveways do not.


Keeping a gravel driveway free and clear  of weeds and grass is often a problem for homeowners. If weeds are left untreated more weeds will germinate leaving your driveway to become overtaken. Eventually your gravel driveway will just disappear!


Though there are many methods that can be used to control weeds, two of the most common are methods are herbicide applications and torches designed for burning weeds.

*Note- Do not pull the weeds out by their roots. This is due to the fact that the weeds root system is under the gravel and it will disturb your driveway.
