Cronin Construction & Resource Management, LLC
Answer: Gravel
Explanation: Single gradation, washed gravel driveways are among the highest maintenance of all common driveway wear surfaces. The maintenance intensive nature of this type of driveway is mainly due to the narrow gradation (sizing) of the stone, which fails to achieve an adequate degree of aggregate interlock due to its lack of variety in particle sizes. This contrasts similar stone base or recycled material options which are typically well graded (containing a variety of sizes) and achieve a much higher degree of interlock, preventing migration, thereby increasing maintenance intervals.
