Yes, this is NOT the correct way to help a driveway, but I need an inexpensive solution. There is gravel [not much] under my carport. I had been storing glass fixtures there, the wind blew them over, and now there are a billion small pieces I can't even begin to pick up. I am interested in purchasing some of the ready mix [just add water] concrete, and possibly scattering it evenly over the gravel, then spraying it with water. Would this work? By "work" I mean, would it harden, and generally help me NOT get flat tires...also acting as a type of gravel? [cannot afford big gravel trucks or full pavement project] Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanx.

I think my "fix" would be to shovel the glass, gravel, and top 1/2-inch of dirt into a wheelbarrow (or buckets) and haul it to the dump.
Then replace the gravel. Total cost would be small and you'll have an improved parking area. Where I live you can buy driveway gravel for less than $10 a ton. If you have to make a few trips to the quarry to carry a couple of hundred pounds of gravel at a time in the trunk of your car, why not? If you have a friend with a truck, even better.
If there's no other way, buy a few bags of gravel at Home Depot. Still not too costly.
