    Unusually mild for February In Ohio


    And it has been incredibly wet, plenty of rain


    Lake has been at full capacity since Christmas


    [​IMG]


    With the milder temps , comes the start of the project list


    So here it is


    Enlarging The Golf Cart Driveway !


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    As you can see there is a mini driveway to park The Golf Cart


    But getting it there is difficult (mud, tilt of yard etc)


    So increasing the length is imperative not wanting to turn it into a major project


    I am thinking gravel


    Thoughts ?

    I like the red crushed rock. We replaced all our wood mulch with it. No more mulching every spring. More boat time!!

    Are you seeing pics in post above ?


    I too love Lava Rock but the constant driving over with a Golf Cart would result in a Red Dust that my wife would not be happy with :)


    If pics are not visible there is no sense in doing the post

    The golf cart on Asphalt gets HOTT in the summer sun 


    If I did Asphalt I know I would be putting up a shed roof to have a car port


    The driveway leading to Garage is Asphalt Great In Winter for Melting Snow (lol)  


    I am thinking Bricks ??


    [​IMG]


    It would take some time but I may be able to do the Job Myself 


    The ride onto the drive may be rough but the look may be awesome


    Thought I could lay some gravel as a solid base then Brick it ? 


    Existing Drive Way for Golf Cart is 6" Thick with Ribar a bit OverKill (lol)

    Pavers would work .You could use a larger size might not be as rough a ride

    That is true and with the larger size it may take less time 


    [​IMG]


    Will look for some with a rougher surface due to morning dew and or rain 


    Dont want to slide out of control

    Nice cart, you have Pittsburg. I just sold mine a few months ago. Really enjoyed it for quite a while, but got too many toys to keep them all played with.
