Cheap and attractive driveway ideas?
As I mentioned in other posts, I live in 93 year old little house in a working class neighborhood. I mention this because I think it helps in determining what to do landscape-wise. This is not the place for formal or fancy. :)
Here's a thread containing a pic of my house and the current "driveway":
the current drive is long and narrow, probably 3 car lengths single file only. It was once asphalt, I can see the remnants, but it was long ago abandoned so it's mostly cracked up and overgrown.
I want something that looks nicer and is a bit more even but I cannot afford much really. I was thinking of lining one side with landscape timbers or something similar and using "crusher run" or ???? I can't afford to pour a concrete drive (and frankly think it looks odd around here.. the neighbor has one and it looks like it should be in a modern landscape)... and I don't know much about gravel but assume it will scatter and be a mess.
Can I just install this right over the old cracked asphalt drive? Is it a DIY thing?
