Gravel has been used for many construction needs. Many property owners choose gravel as the main material for building their road because it provides efficient water drainage without creating a mud bog.

We have been using gravel in many applications in our construction projects and apart from using it as a base layer for roads, we use it to surface roadways.

It has great water filtration capacity because it acts as a natural filter holding back impurities and other sand-sized particles. It also adds a natural beauty to roads.

Road Construction Specifications, Maintenance, And Cost

Grave Roads BigBig Easy Landscaping has been acquainted with the specifications for gravel road construction and we make sure that we know the local standards for gravel roads.

For every project, we make sure that the road we construct with gravel will provide safe travel for the expected volume at the designed speed of vehicles. We consider the following features required for gravel road construction:

  • Sight distance
  • Design speed
  • Alignment and curves
  • Surface friction
  • Lane width
  • Super elevation

We take all of these into consideration in the planning phase of the gravel road construction project so that we can achieve the most economical road that will meet transportation and foot traffic needs in your property.

Another factor we consider in road gravel construction is the quality of your soil. Our team is equipped with basic knowledge of soil characteristics to help avoid failures and unneeded expenses on your end. Soil properties we take into consideration include:

  • Size grading
  • Plasticity
  • Optimum moisture content

Our contractors will make sure that your soil is fit for a gravel road. This means that the soil needs to have more fines and some plasticity to bind it together, provide adequate drainage, and create a hard-riding surface.

We will make sure that your soil will be able to sustain a gravel road so that you will not experience premature pavement failure.

For the cost of gravel road construction, total road costs and maintenance costs are considered. Factors that will determine the total cost include:

  • Topography
  • Types of soils
  • Availability of good crushed stone or gravel
  • Traffic demands
  • Local standards

The costs can be fairly closely calculated by adding the estimated costs of materials, equipment, and labor required to complete the job.

So my husband and I bought a house with a large yard and decided to ask Big Easy Landscaping to work their magic. It took about a month or so, but the wait is worth it. The once barren area is now a beautiful lush area perfect for morning coffee and brunch with family and friends.
