The problem with this product is it creeps. i.e. it will wash from your drive into your flower beds and may kill your plants. The modern products are rendered harmless on contact with soil

re your drive, mine is 18" of hardcore top dressed with pea shingle. Advantages, looks nice, drains well, very cheap, if you spill oil you just rake it around. Disadvantages, picks up in shoe treads and comes indoors, not ideal for jacking but I have had no problems, same weed problem as others.
