Throughout the Georgian Bay & Parry Sound areas, Schlager Inc provides customers with expert, dependable construction and maintenance solutions and services for gravel driveways and private roads.
Whether your cottage laneway is a road less travelled or a year-round, busy hub of vehicles, having a well-designed, constructed and maintained gravel surface can make a big difference to the appearance and use of your outdoor spaces.
There are many benefits to having a gravel surface for your driveway or private road. Durable and long-lasting, this surface solution is an economical choice. Appropriate for both large and small areas, this surface is also practical and relatively low-maintenance for rural applications.
A well-designed driveway goes beyond the basic function of access to your property. Your gravel driveway, taking into account grading for safe vehicle operation, proper depth for drainage, and choice of materials, can be a significant feature in your property landscaping. A clean, smooth and well-compacted surface can add to esthetic appeal, complementing your home and the natural surroundings.
While rough patches and unexpected potholes can be inevitable in life’s journey, they don’t have to be part of your gravel driveway or roadway. Maintaining a gravel surface is considerably cheaper and less invasive than with paved surfaces. Being proactive with maintenance can also keep potential problems to a minimum by addressing them early. Booking spring maintenance can take care of any ice or plow damage. Pre-winter upkeep can address the beginnings of potholes or erosion that could become more extensive with ice and snow.
Less frequent maintenance tasks include weed control, “top dressing” the gravel surface every few years, and maintaining the grading.
