After grounding out the front of the car one to many times on the steep gravel incline the customer asked what could be done?

Rather too much plum slate on this driveway with a narrow side path way out of proportion, so the remedy… install a very pleasing light grey block with a dark grey outline, a percentage of graveled area was retained due to the property being at the bottom of a hill and can at times collect a lot of surface water. A couple of planting areas was incorporated¬† to break up the hardness and soften the look once planted.

An unwelcome snow storm covered us overnight but was soon gone to allow progress.
