I'm looking to add on to my gravel driveway.
Where I want to add on there is a drain ditch for when it rains alot. I'm thinking about putting a drainage pipe and then putting gravel over it. Can anybody give me some advice.? Where can I get a drainage pipe? Do I need a permit? etc.

I would look in the yellow pages and check with a local contractor. You'll almost certainly have to have someone else haul and place the pipe - unless you have your own construction equipment. As to the need for a permit, it likely depends on whether the drainage ditch is beside a public road or just part of your property. Chances are you'll need a permit. A contractor could tell you that as well.

Work like that might require some heavy duty construction equipment. I would try to find a local contractor to do it for you. They won't make accidental mistakes and will make it go a lot more smoothly than if you tried to do it yourself.
