Use a backblade to smooth the drive or just float your bucket to fill in the holes?

seems like you do a fair amount of stone work. I dont see why stone driveways are so popular there. Seems like a disaster waiting to happen with the hills and snow and ice.

I literally REFUSE! to plow gravel driveways. It's a nightmare people around here opt for them time to time and it's just chaos. IMO its people cheeping out over and over instead of just paying to have something done right once. Not that I'm routing for Bosseti to lose any work.

Ya every so often people want them around here-cheaper option than concrete or asphault. Pavers are not real big here and there is alot of conrete but most concrete guys are expensive.

Ya I dont plow them either. I do one flat gravel driveway and 2 very small lots and hate them. But its what the customer wants!

The first year I had a plow one of my first clients was gravel and omg did I get chewed out first I got called that I didnt plow the snow low enough and then i came back and I pushed too much gravel. Thats when I decided I was just done plowing gravel. People are to difficult to please and I have way to many houses to plow in a night to sit there coming up with some algorithm to fit their gravel drives lol ... Id consider a lot if I have a loader with a snow blower attachment or if a contract stating gravel WILL BE PUSHED was signed lol
