We have a gravel driveway at our home in south central Minnesota. We haven't been getting much snow in recent winters, but our driveway blows over with less than 1/2 inch. My husband plows snow in the winter, but for homes with paved drives. Ours is 795 feet long and as I said, gravel. We also have nice grass on either side. When the snow melts, we literally have more gravel on our lawn than on the driveway. This causes him to get out the bobcat and sweeper attachment and proceed to rip out the delicate grass and add ruts which make mowing the lawn a treat. I have had a gravel driveway my whole life, and never once needed to get a bobcat in the spring. A small rake in areas, maybe. He doesn't believe me when I said I never see anyone else with this big of a problem, and every spring I show him yards gravel free. He says there is no other way to do it. I suggested not plowing until he sees grass, stay on the driveway, but he says he has to go so fast that it shoots up anyway. He suggested I snow blow it (a walk behind too) or pave it. Not too realistic, my dear, but there has to be something he is doing that he can stop so he stops making it such a chore in the spring. Advice??!
