One place you might consider planting a fewvegetables is in your driveway. While many of my neighbors garden out of portable woodenplanters that flank their concrete driveway, we actually removed our driveway to create a 125
  6. 6. ft x 10 ft patch of garden space.After rotating our carriage house several years ago so that itcould be accessed through the alley instead of the street, we ended up with a long narrowpatch of driveway that could be turned into something else. Since we were interested inexpanding our existing garden space, we decided that turning this strip into a linear gardenwas the highest and best use of the land. If you are interested in converting your drivewayinto a veggie garden like ours, heres how it was done:Removed the surface. Our originaldriveway was made of 6" of packed gravel. While this was definitely easier to get rid of thanconcrete, the porousness of the material meant that the ground beneath could becontaminated with 100 years of leaking oil and antifreeze. The top 18" of gravel and soil wereremoved from the driveway (by an excavation company) which cost us about 300. I collectedsoil samples from the excavated area where were sent to a local lab for testing. Luckily forus, the samples came up negative for contaminants.Brought in top soil. To replenish the soilthat was removed, top soil was brought in and leveled out over the old driveway. Since thenew top soil did not have the dark, loamy consistency of quality garden soil, our old drivewaybecame the place to dump clean leaves, untreated grass clippings, and other organic yardwaste and pet bedding. In the spring when the organic waste had compressed down to aheight of 6", my husband and I would run the roto tiller through the drive to turn thecomposted material into the soil. It took three years for the soil to improve enough that foodcrops could be planted.Plot the garden. Since my driveway was bordered by a blackberrypatch on the south and a south facing cedar fence on the north, I had a several challenges towork around. One problem was the grading which due to city drainage codes had to slopetowards my neighbors yard to the north. Another issue was the intense heat which reflectedoff the fence. Both of these problems were solved by planting summer loving veggies suchas corn, beans, cucumbers, peppers, and summer squash. The corn and beans were plantedin furrows running parallel to the fence line for easy irrigation. Squashes and cucumberswere planted in mounds and watered with soaker hoses.While turning our driveway into avegetable garden cost us about 500 in all, we felt that the trade off in creating more gardenspace was definitely worth the cost. Not only did we double our existing garden space, wewere able to finally grow large quantities of veggies that normally werent worth the cost forthe amount of space they took. For families needing extra garden space, it may be worth thecost to you by converting an unused driveway way into a summer vegetable garden.More bythis contributor:Why are my vegetable seeds not sprouting?How to create more growingspace in your vegetable garden.How my backyard saves me money.The next step is to mix concrete dressing. The concrete dressing should be applied fresh andtherefore should be mixed in small batches. For resurfacing an entire driveway, you will needtwo persons. One for applying the dressing while the other for mixing the dressing for thenext batch. While resurfacing a driveway, people generally prefer to have texture in it. Usingtexture concrete spray is the best way to get it. Texture concrete sprays can give the desiredlook and slipresistant surface that you want.Everyone should check their credit report at least once a year.

It is extremelycheap and available easily. The material is not considered good for driveways that are usedheavily as it is not very durable. It perfectly suits garden pathways because of its woody andnatural look. Moreover, it also suits the children play areas because of its soft nature and thefact that it prevents a child from getting slipped over the path.The first thing that you need to do in order to resurface your driveway is to clean it. Thedriveways must be cleaned thoroughly by using a pressure washer to make sure that theconcrete resurfacing is effective.
