    I have a dirt driveway (very long), and it is getting very rough, especially the center. Its packed down really hard, but rough material was used since there a some large stones in it. ( i didn't make the driveway).
    My question is, can i topdress it with stone dust to smooth it out, and make it level? But will the stone dust run off the driveway after time?
    From my few experiences with stone dust, it seemed to pack down very well.
    any advice would be appreciated, thanks
