I have some nasty potholes in my gravel driveway. I am unsure if the driveway has a proper "base" of large gravel beneath the top layer we all see. My mom and dad always just brought in more tailgated gravel when it was needed but the same potholes always come back in the same spots.
To complicate matters, when the driveway wraps around the side of the house, there was a railroad tie retaining wall built. From my gravel driveway to the bottom of the gulley is about 3ft. The retaining wall is rotting, failing, and is need of a different solution (it lasted about 25 years). I want a permanent solution for the retaining wall, thinking either bring in fill dirt and build it up or pay $$$ and have a beefy concrete wall poured (my guess this will cost $5k). My concern with fill dirt is creating a soggy condition in my neighbors yard.
What are my options for the driveway and the retaining wall?
I would like to knock out one of these project this year.
3038e, loader, ballast box, back blade, and tiller. I suspect I will need to buy a box blade...
