    I have a friend that has a business in a high traffic area (for vehicles). Can anyone offer an affordable soution for the front of the property that faces the road (4 lane, lots of traffic and crappy soil) that is low maintenance but attractive. THere is a ton of rocks, etc that collect from the road. I am imagining that gravel is the way to go, but wondering if anyone had some original ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes gravel is a very good way to go. Quarry dust or some small yet large stones than that work great. Just spread em out evenly and use a compactor to work them in. Also i would suggest putting a plastic barrier along the side of the traffic area so the stone doesn't get moved around. Also dig down maybe 3 inches and then add your material in.
