Installing a driveway for a new house in Whitefield, NH.   First step is to remove the top soil.  A base was laid down followed by road fabric. Road fabric is a permeable woven geotextile that allows water on the surface to flow through the gravel to the soil beneath and restrict subgrade soil particles from working up into the gravel surface.  The road fabric will also help to prevent grass and weeds from growing up through the road way.  Then gravel was spread out making sure it was crowned.  Crowning means that the center of the driveway is higher than the edges. The crown allows water to flow off to the sides of the driveway preventing any pooling of water on the gravel surface.  This will also help prevent washing out of the road.
