If you’re considering installing a gravel driveway at your home, turn to Southern Dirt & Land. Our team has years of experience as gravel driveway contractors in Memphis, TN, and surrounding areas, so we understand all the ins and outs of the process. Let’s take a look at the installation process for a gravel driveway and how Southern Dirt & Land can help make your journey easier.
Gravel driveways are an affordable choice for many homeowners because they are relatively easy to install and maintain. To ensure your gravel driveway looks its best and lasts as long as possible, it’s important that you hire a professional team like Southern Dirt & Land for the job. We use a four step process when installing gravel driveways: survey, preparation, installation, and maintenance.
We first survey the area where your new driveway will be installed and make a plan for installation, taking into account utility lines, potential obstacles, drainage concerns, and any grading necessities. Then, we prepare the ground by removing existing vegetation or debris, as well as grading for proper drainage and to smooth out any bumps or uneven surfaces. The next step is to add a base layer of crushed rock or sand to act as a foundation and prevent shifting. Finally, we layer gravel over top of the base material and rake it into place before compacting everything down with a roller compactor. These steps ensure that your newly installed gravel driveway is firmly in place, level, and even throughout. Depending on your exact needs and specifications, we may also add final touches such as edging, drainage, curbs, or sidewalks. After everything is installed and looking exactly the way you want, our team provides ongoing maintenance services including aeration, gravel addition, and continued grading to keep your driveway looking its best over time.

Do you have a gravel driveway cost calculator? How deep should a gravel driveway be? How to make a gravel driveway over grass and what kind of gravel is best for a driveway?

Teyton is very professional and hard working. Done an excellent job laying sod for us today. If you need a professional job done, call Teyton.
We had Teyton clear land, install drains and lay sod at our house. We are so happy with the work he did. He was always on time, great communication and did exceptional work. We even added on finishing our driveway because he did such a great job. We would definitely use Southern Dirt again and highly recommend him.
I had Teyton Cloar from southerndirt.net come out and clear brush at the farm today. I couldn't be more happy and satisfied. Will definitely be having him back for more!
Teyton came out to install a French drain at my house recently. He showed up on time and with the proper tools for the job. He completed the job in a timely manner and was fair priced. I was very pleased.

A huge shout out and thank you to Teyton! We had a lot of tree damage in March tornado including one massive 50+ year old tree that fell and ripped up our concrete driveway. The root ball was huge and Teyton and his skid steer successfully got it pulled up and carried off for us. It took a few tries, a chain saw and some chains but he never gave up. He also cleaned up some other fallen trees and logs for us.
He came quickly after I called him and the price was very reasonable. He had previously built us a couple retaining walls. Would definitely recommend him and plan to use him again soon.
