    Macadam driveway


    Anyone here have one? I have a gravel driveway that is a total PITA in the winter: can't have it plowed so I end up snowblowing stones in the yard! I'd like to keep the blue stone look, but want less hassle in the winter.

    macadam is basically a chip n seal surface with what ever color stone chips ya want, subject to snowplow damage in the winter, not as bad as a loose gravel surface, but not as good as a bituminous concrete surface

    Go solar and heat the driveway?

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    250' worth?

    I know what it is - I just want to know if someone has firsthand experience with one.

    fwiw, this thread has me thinking of macadam for my driveway, snowblowing stones into my yard isn't as much of an issue cause I don't have a lawn that I mow, but I do go thru a lot of shear pins and see a lot of stones on the roof of my house (don't know why I've never put one thru a window)

    It's basically a chip and seal driveway, pick your color.
