    I've got a hillside that is about 50 feet in length and has a slope of 14''/12''. The customer said they dont care so much about the look but they want a surface where they can drive their lawn tractor up and down without slipping. They currently have an uneven slick slope and they suggested putting down a compacted crushed stone layer. I personally think that this is to steep and the crushed stone will erode down the hill. What do you guys think? My supplier suggested duragreen pavers but they are pretty expensive, are there any other suggestions? thanks
