It's time to repair our long driveway again.....
A couple of days ago, Duane and I did just a little repair on our own part of the driveway - some spots have lost their "chip and tar" coating over the years. First we use the leaf blower to blow all the pea-gravel away and expose the bare hard-packed dirt.
Then we apply layers of hot tar and sprinkle new pea gravel over the tar. That's it - simple process.
Here's a closeup with a little tar showing thru. As we drive on it, the gravel will "sink" into the tar a bit to make a smooth surface.
Then this morning we and the neighbors got up early to tackle the "shared" driveway.
Duane's "new" tar-wagon is working great! Much easier than gravity feeding out of a 55 gallon barrel like we did the previous times!
Fun, fun....just kidding - it's a lot of work!! Glad we only do it every few years.
