Driveway Curb (pictures)

Since I have a mixer and portland, sand/gravel left over from my 2 other cement projects (see Steps and Walkway) I decided to put curbing along the driveway. I was getting tired of forever fighting the grass that kept growing into the drive!!

Man that looks great! Good Job. I'd be too tempted to cement the whole driveway after that.

Since the road is also gravel, I would then be forever sweeping it!!!

Thanks for posting these photos. Inspiring to get off my behind and get larger projects done.

Did you roll or treat the driveway before putting down the gravel to stop weeds?

The drive has been there for 11 years, I have them pretty well under control. It was the grass intruding that was my biggest problem.
