Traditional gravel or pea shingle driveways: These were once only for the very wealthy. They were introduced as a security measure. The idea being that when a vehicle or person made contact with the shingle, the noise would alert the household to the intruder.
Hold your level on this line at the house end and either raise or lower it until it is level, if you have a gap under the level and the line on the end facing the pavement, then you have the correct direction of fall in the driveway. When you are satisfied with the height and fall of the line, wrap some tape around the pegs to the underside of your line, this will save having to go through the same process again if the line is moved for any reason.
Having a sealed driveway or parking lot surface has benefits far beyond the money saved on re-paving. For starters, the smooth, sealed finish will be easier to clean than cracked, stained asphalt, enabling you to keep your property looking its best. Even more importantly, sealed pavement is safer to walk and drive on. Large cracks and holes can pose a tripping hazard for individuals of all ages.
These have only been around since the early eighties but seem to have lasted the test of time. There are many different types colours and styles to choose from, you could even make your own pattern if you so desire. The advantages of having a block paved driveway are marginal; much of it comes down to personal taste. But durability is a major attraction as block paving can last a very long time.
