My driveway is rocks. Everytime it rains & we drive out or into the driveway, more & more rock goes into the road. How can I keep the rock in my driveway where it needs to be?

    I was thinking maybe if you want, take out all the rocks and just pave your driveway so that problem doesn't happen anymore

    Well you could take out all the rocks and pave your driveway so this problem won't happen. Only if you want o though. You don't have to

    I wonder if you could etch out a small channel between the driveway and roadway, maybe a couple inches wide and deep. It wouldn't have to be too big, so you felt like you were driving into a dip. The rocks would go into the channel instead of out onto the road. I guess you'd have to clean it out occasionally.

      P.S. This wouldn't stop the problem entirely as rocks tend to get stuck in tires, so there will still be some getting out onto the road, I guess.

    Just an idea. Why not try pavers at the end of the driveway,maybe two rows. Dig out area so the pavers are level with gravel. The weight of the cars is pushing the gravel around. I don't know if the weight of car might break pavers, but it's worth shot.

    You could add asphalt to the bottom portion of your road where it connects to the road. Also dry conrete and water in cementing the section in place, and I found this on the internet:
    I found a product called Stone Man Stay Put. The manufacturer is Ivy League Landscape LLC. Found it at Ace but I'm sure Home Depot has it too. Simple water like mixture. Put it in your sprayer and apply a thin coating. You literally cannot tell there is anything holding the stones together, but they do not move. It's been two years and I have not had to rake a single pebble. Has no effect on your sprayer either. I still use the same sprayer for Round

    This is a shot in the dark. Do some research into Polymeric Sand, which is what they use between pavers. Perhaps email (with photos) one of the companies that produces it and explain your dilemma. I say this because you don’t want to waste $$. I believe in going to the source Rather than the blithe salesman

    If you can find crushed up concrete then I would put that down. Then water that down. It becomes hard again like concrete. It will be rough but the rocks won't slide anymore.

    So maybe you could still take out all the rocks and add something like tile but not like bathroom tile. Do you know what I'm talking about? If not I am really sorry I wasn't helpful

    What if you put one or 2 rows of bricks at the end of your drive at? Or more if you wanted to! Then it would give kind of a barriers for the rocks to stay put. Just dig deep enough so the bricks are level with the road or however deep you want them
