How to fix a washed-out driveway

1 min read

For those with gravel driveways heavy rain can be a bit of a bummer as well as much-needed liquid gold. Washed out or badly damaged driveways can lead to accidents and cause thousands of dollars in damage to your vehicles. There is a break in the weather forecast for the Sunshine Coast over the weekend, so it is a good opportunity to get onto it, and fix your washed out driveway for good. The key to safeguarding your driveway from the elements is in the base that is laid before fresh gravel is poured. This safeguards you from having to repair the same stretch of driveway after every major downpour.

To make sure the problem is permanently fixed, make sure a base of 75mm is laid first. Then you can go ahead and lay a 25mm road base over the top.
After you have carefully prepared this base (with the correct amount of product), you can smooth out the surface, and then you are ready to apply fresh gravel. If you are unsure about how much product you will need to fix your driveway properly, we are happy to point you in the right direction.
