We live on an alley and need to put in an additional parking space. We have dug the space 5" deep and are ready to frame out the space so we can load in gravel.

Does anyone have info on framing out the space? What do we use? Is 5" deep enough? Are we setting outselves up for disaster if we want to lay concrete next year? Any advise is appreciated!

You can use anything you want to form around it, pressure treated 1x6 or 2x6, etc.

As long as the sub grade is solid you should be OK. If you plan to concrete over it in the future I would suggest you use ABC stone instead of washed stone. The fine particles will help seal out the water when it rains protecting the sub grade so you will not have problems.
