I will be taking up a section of my lawn and putting in a parking pad for my Son's car. This will be next to my garage and come off my paved driveway, so it will be a 12' x 22' rectangle with a 12' x 21' right-triangle on the short end of the rectangle. I plan on using 1-1/2" crushed blue stone, probably at a depth of 6".
Will I be able to grade this with a rear scraper blade or will I need a box-blade with scarifiers? I will be buying whichever I need for this and will keep it for future needs.
I am not a total noob, I used to own a 4100 CUT and had a light duty rear scraper blade (sold it all 15 years ago, now I am slowly buying it all back ), which I had used only for grading dirt. So I have some idea of what I can do with a scraper, which is why I am questioning whether it would be effective on 1-1/2" crushed stone. I fear it might just ride over the stone, as 1-1/2" crushed stone packs together pretty well. However, I've never used a box blade before so I have no feel for what a box blade would do here.
Any and all thoughts, suggestions will be appreciated.
