Increasing driveway area (whats scalping stone?)

Postby rossi_mac » Sun Nov 08, 2009 8:49 pm


Hope some one can help me out here, we have a drive and footpath of loose stone. I'm going to increase the area by removing half of the large flower bed and a proportion of the lawn. I've already dug up the flower bed, and will be digging up the lawn soon. I've been told by a few I don't need to put any hardcore down just a sheet and some stones. I've already been parking on where the flower bed was and there's no movement.

I have read the project on this site and found it very interesting
It sounds straight forward to me.

My real question is what is "SCALPING STONE" which is what this project mentions, is there any other stone that I can use? I'm finding it difficult to source!
