I have been getting lots of rain and with my gravel driveway I get a lot of wash out especially on the sides. I have used logs for some of the driveway but right now I don't have any available. The one thing I do have a lot of is boulders. I have tried using pallets but they last one or two trips before being trashed with the weight of the boulders or trying to take them off with the BH, OOPS to much down pressure will do it in. Thanks to my Nephew who deals in used car parts, he had an old car hood he couldn't get rid of and was in his way, BINGO!!! What a wonderful Nephew! Gave it to me for free and now I have been moving boulders all day today.
