We have been talking about doing our driveway for about 10years, basically since we bought the place. We have always had things come up and not done it. Well my husband got such a good price he went ahead. They even took out a few palm trees that I was worried about ruining the block wall as they were too close. I have a 110+ foot driveway so it was a large expense. but it should be done by Monday. The neighbors above us are also doing theirs. So I think the neighbors will have a wine an cheese party as our broken up asphalt driveways are the blight of the neighborhood. Ours especially.

    I have gotten estimates on redoing our cement. I think we would have a boonesfarm or ripple and cheese whiz party.

    Nice Christmas surprise!! I've thought about having my driveway asphalted, but it is 1/4 of a mile long, so I'd probably have to sell the house to afford it.

    We had it done for around 4k and that included the wire mesh underneath. It was quite thick in some areas about 110 long. It looks great.
