Gravel driveways can be a classic, low-maintenance, and inexpensive addition to add curb appeal to your home. A gravel driveway can last for decades with proper care and maintenance. A&D Excavating specializes in gravel driveway installation, maintenance, and restoration. Whether you're installing a new gravel driveway or you need stone spread on your existing drive, we've got you covered. Call us today 419-934-5663!


For new driveways, we start by clearing all vegetation and removing topsoil. Next, we excavate to a stable sub-grade, lay weed barrier fabric, and install a coarse aggregate base layer. The final step is to top with a finish layer of gravel.


Driveway culverts are used to carry water from one side of your driveway to the other and help prevent erosion and flooding. Farm culverts can be used to divert water or act as a bridge for machinery to pass over.

Driveway Maintenance


Regular maintenance will keep your gravel driveway looking its best. We have the equipment to ensure proper grading, replenish gravel, find and fix low spots, and level your driveway. We can also widen your existing driveway.

Driveway Restoration


We can make your old driveway look new again. Save money by restoring your existing driveway. We can eliminate potholes, ruts, and washouts without adding any gravel to your existing driveway.


If you are constructing a new driveway, make sure you obtain the proper permit before installation. ODOT requires right-of-way permits for all work that occurs along state, federal, and interstate highways. ODOT offers online applications for Right of Way permits here. All work performed within corporation limits must be approved by the appropriate city or village. Permits for work performed along county or township right-of-way must be obtained from your County Engineer's Office.


• Go slow. Driving too fast on a gravel drive can cause divots and potholes to form, which can lead to standing water problems.
• Improper drainage can cause flooding, pooling, and washing gravel away from a driveway. Adding drainage to your driveway can help ensure a long life.
• We recommend adding a new layer of gravel to the surface of your driveway every 1-2 years. We can deliver gravel directly to your home. Click here to learn more.
• Do not drive in only one location. Use the entire driveway and stagger your tire tracks.
