Driveway Questions and Answers



Driveway

Want to redesign our driveway from straight to a curving one coming from the front gate. Have plenty of room (I think!) but can't find any info on recommended widths, how much room we should allow for backing up and turning around to exit, or suggestions for maximum parking. Any suggestions or advice???

A ten foot minimum width is the only advice I would give, other than to get out your tape measure and check out the neighborhood. See what you like and measure it. As for backing up and parking. Forget the grass for a minute and drive and park like there is a drive there and see how much room you need.


Driveway Oil Clean Up

The vehicle owned by the previous owners of our house leaked oil on the driveway. It is still quite wet. What is the best way to clean this up?

The best cleaner I have found is kitty litter. If you scrub it in with a block of wood (a piece of 2x4) you can scrub out some nasty stains.

New construction driveway


I recently had an 1800 sq. ft driveway installed. Should I seal it before winter or wait until next spring/summer for it to fully cure? If before winter, what temperature should I make sure the day is for the sealant to be most successful?

What kind of driveway? Concrete?Asphalt? It is an asphalt driveway. Would you recommend sealing it before or after winter? Concrete sealing can be done the next day. Asphalt drives can be sealed after 90 days.

Stamped driveway

I have a new home with a poured and pressed stamped driveway, colored. is there any special care that should be taken? should it be sealed somehow?

Yes, the contractor should have sealed it. He should have also cut expansion joints in it at least every 10'. In Canada you cannot stop the cracking, only try and control where they occur.

Parking Area

This is probably a little off the wall but here goes. I park a 19' boat trailer on an area of my lawn....

Walkways Questions and Answers



Sidewalks

Concrete Sidewalk

I need to pour a concrete sidewalk. I am going to do it myself. I need to know the proper mixture (in parts) for the concrete.   Also, any suggestions concerning working the concrete would be appreciated.

To mix one cubic foot of concrete you need 24 lb. of portland 52 lb. of sand and 78 lb. of crushed rock or coarse aggregate. For a sidewalk I would use 3/4" rock. Most sidewalks get a broom finish and this should be done after floating the concrete the stiffness of the broom and pressure applied will determine the roughness of the finish. Also proper curing is important up to 50%more strength can be developed by proper curing. Plastic over the concrete as soon as possible after finishing or keeping the slab damp for at least six days will help also leaving the forms on helps.

Used Chicago brick walkway

I want to build a walkway in my garden, using used Chicago brick. I have no experience using this brick and would like to know where I should start and how much of a process it will be?

I personally do not like to use Chicago brick in situations where a large amount of moisture can be expected. They are a very porous/soft brick and soak water very quickly which is why they were originally used for backup brick inside the wall. If you want to make a walk way or path from them I recommend pouring concrete to keep them off the ground and pitching them to provide lots of drainage. I know that my not caring for the brick is because of the freeze thaw cycle in this area and they may work fine elsewhere.

 

INSTALLING A WALK

I am looking for info and or any diagrams on putting down a walk with pavers. I am trying to find how to make it with a curve leading to a front porch.

There are several home improvement books with diagrams for walks that you describe. Ortho's Home Improvement Encylopedia (problem solving from A to Z) is available on the internet by simply typing in the title the cost is around $30. I use a piece of 1/4" pressed board to form the radius and simply place the brick to the form. Another suggestion use a header course as a border to smooth the radius and simplify the cuts to turn the walk.

I would recommend visiting your local Home Depot or similar Hardware 'Mega-Stores'. They have the information you requested to set pavers for a walkway.

I am currently in the process of laying a walk-way and have the same challenge to find the best way to affect a bend in the walk. At this point, I see two primary options (of which there are many derivatives). First, you can run the pavers long-ways along the walkway and simply bend the angle of the pavers to match the arch or bend in the walkway. This will leave a (small) gap between the short-end of the bricks where you affect this bend that can be filled with sand. The other method is to cut the bricks at the point whe...
