    Thomas, I have been wondering the exact same thing about what size of gravel to use on my driveway. I have been wanting to rip out my cracked concrete and put done something that requires less maintenance. I am leaning towards gravel, but there are so many choices it makes it hard to know what to go with.

Is this going to be finished product? Are you going to end up driving on it? Or are you going to compact it , and use it as a sub base, to pour concrete over it?
if it's going to be an underlayment, make sure that you compacted very well! Put down a layer, sprinkle lots of water on top of it, and then use a plate compactor over, and over, and over it, doing this repetitively water compaction, more gravel, water, more compaction.
3/4- works best for this.
If you are going to be driving on it, and it is going to be your finished product, then use something bigger like 1.5 inch, especially if there is no other gravel below it. If very muddy, and soft, and you will not be using an underlayment fabric, then go even bigger - 3 inches plus. But it is recommended to use an underlayment fabric.
otherwise, what can happen over time , is the rock will fall deeper and the mud will rise to the top.

Have a gravel driveway bought a Ariens 24 Snow Thro adjusted skid shoes to lift machine, is the scraper blade also adjustable, it is throwing a lot of rocks?

Yes, they are all adjustable. Loosen the hardware, Find something to use as a shim... a few paint can stirrers.. put them under the Scraper to lift it about 3/8" then tighten the hardware. See how that helps the stone throwing. Gravel driveways are tough for Blowers and Plows...It's best to actually leave snow on the driveway to pack down and form a Base. Then the next snow will be stone free.

How to keep gravel driveway from eroding

Yes sand and cement mixed with the gravel.

Another thing you can use is 'cold planings', (that is what it is called in the UK) and is what they skim off the top of the road when they are resurfacing. You will find it in various locations. Ask your local Roads Department.

Or you could use your gravel as a base, have it rolled and then asphalted (tarmacked).

How deep to dig a french drain side of a driveway

It all depends on the soil conditions, you want to consider the size of your gravel that you use for your french drain and next thing is,
few days before you start to dig your drainage make sure you should contact your local utility company and driveway contractors. Recently, my husband and I just moved into a new house in Long Island area, and I wanted to install a French drain which would help me to hold water. So I got in contact with the local utility company and driveway Long Island contractors to have all the underground utility lines of our property which are located and marked.

How much gravel will I need for my 80 gallon aquarium?

Well, I don't have a tank quite that large, but I use 150 pounds of gravel in my 75 gallon tank. Obviously this also varies according to pebble size; however you should try to have at least 6" of gravel from the back of your tank sloping down to around 4" towards the front. Hope you find this helpful.

I have a 99 Avenger and was told that I have a transmission leak after getting my oil changed. I have not noticed any leaking on my driveway (although I have a gravel driveway), I am not sure what to do...

Hi, I recommend you check your fluid level periodically to see how much it's leaking. If it isn't leaking much and since you have a gravel driveway anyway, I wouldn't bother fixing it. It is usually expensive to do so--much more than the cost of a few bottles of fluid per year. The transmission dipstick is near the back of the engine, near the firewall. You leave the engine running with the transmission in park to check it. Use a funnel in the dipstick tube to add fluid. If the transmission runs low on fluid, it will not go into gear. That will be a reminder to add fluid. You should keep a couple quarts in the trunk along with a funnel in case it runs low awat from home. Ask the parts store person what is the right fluid for your transmission, as there are several kinds. Sound OK?
