How to Build Gravel Drive Ways/Roads that Won’t Wash Away

The first thing you need when building on an off grid property is a road and or drive way. And the best way to do this is put a lot of time an effort into it the very first time. First bevel the road into two sides that allow water to drain to the side of the road. Build up the road bed with Caliche and several inches of gravel. Over time the Caliche will bond with rock, gravel and sand and almost turn into cement. You can also put in French drains that will guide the water to where you want it to drain such as a yard, garden or pond. Since the water will flow here every time is rains, this is a great place to plant wildflowers that will bloom many times when it rains. Also lay down a gravel grid of Geocells that will keep the gravel in place and keep it from washing away.
