ok so im tired of washing my car, only to have it covered in dust the next morning. i live on a very dusty driveway, theres no grass on it and the dirt is almost like sand

would be be possible to grow grass on this or even maybe make the dirt be not so dry so it doesnt fly everywhere when someone drives by?

As mentioned, your drain oil would keep the dust down, but the EPA frowns on that.

I am sure you could find a coarse, durable field grass that would work if you can stay off of it long enough to germinate. A couple of inches of gravel or crushed lime stone is another option.

Keep it nice and wet...Mud won't fly up on the car, if you drive slow enough! :)

I hate visiting friends that live on unpaved roads. I always try to leave the Caddy home and take one of the vans.
There's not much you can do except move. Cand you dump a s*&^load of sand on it? Sand doesn't fly around. Anyway you look at it, it's continous maintenance.

Cover it with cement, slag, or blacktop, that would solve the problem.

i was actually thinkin about that, like gettin oru landlord to pave our driveways and add part of the cost to our rent, im sure it would bring up the value of the properties and beautify the place a lil as well

whats the going rate per suare ft or yard or watever they use to rate the job?

Beautify with blacktop. Oxymoron, ain't it? :)

id go that route. ^

depending on how easy it is to get to the driveway with the trucks, putting tar down could get VERY costly. i recently had an 18x30 spot done in my backyard, and the guys couldnt get the truck back there...which meant they had to use wheelbarrows and much smaller machinery.

hows a few grand sound? yeah, thats what i figured lol.

find a place that delivers gravel, or go to walmart and get it in 50lb bags.

this driveway is right by the main road, trucks will have absolutely no problem gettin to it
