Crushed Limestone driveways and roads are very common in the Hill Country. While not cheap, they are often much more affordable than concrete, chip seal, or asphalt driveways and hold up well in moderate weather. Driving habits (driving slow and keeping traffic to a minimum after rains will help your base road hold up longer. We can also work with caliche.
Honesty Up Front: While we do our best to build a good, solid road or driveway, we cannot warranty our materials and labor against the effects of flash floods and extremely heavy rains that damage (unfortunately with some frequency) even the best built gravel roads in the hill country. We are here to help and will work with you as best we can. It is the customer's responsibility to keep culverts clear of sticks and debris which could cause water to back up or overrun the road.
We can trench for oak wilt with a rock chain trencher to 4'. We can go 5' on larger jobs but that requires us to add an extension to our machine and extra charges apply. We have an excavator that can trench to 12' but we rarely find roots past 4-5'. Each trenching job is unique and pricing depends on access, depth, and terrain.
