As long as it does not slope too quickly you can put gravel on top of concrete but you will need 50mm of gravel to stop it spreading quickly. Once a week tidiying it up with a rake should keep it ok.

Gravel is cheap and cheerful but can be messy and look messy from wheel ruts, especially if gravel is less than 50mm in places.
