What Are Crushed Concrete Driveways?
Crushed concrete driveways are made of recycled concrete aggregate.
How Crushed Concrete Driveways Work
There are four steps to our crushed concrete driveway process.
1. Excavate the Area
The section of land to be used as your driveway will need to be dug out and flattened—an uneven space will lead to depressions or mounds of crushed concrete.
2. Install Geotextile Material (If Needed)
Prior to spreading the crushed concrete, a thick geotextile layer may need to be installed in the trenched driveway. This extra step can prevent weeds from penetrating your crushed concrete driveway.
3. Spread the Aggregate
Next, we will use our stone slinger trucks to disperse the crushed concrete. Our trucks allow for a quick and precise application.
4. Compact & Rake
Finally, we will compact the aggregate, ensuring it is in place, while raking it to achieve an even coverage.

Benefits of Crushed Concrete Driveways
There are many reasons why crushed concrete driveways are the best choice, including:
For those on a budget seeking an effective driveway, crushed concrete is your best option. Unlike with paved driveways, which require more equipment for a more extensive installation, our concrete driveways primarily use our stone slinger trucks to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
This loose-form concrete material is ideal for Michiganders. The dramatic season changes our state experiences come with serious temperature fluctuations. This causes swelling and contracting in paved driveways, sometimes leading to serious cracks. Crushed concrete driveways do not have this issue.
Crushed concrete provides a rustic, simplistic aesthetic for a driveway. The upkeep on this type of driveway is simple, too. A crushed concrete driveway will be as durable as it was on its first day more than 50 years down the line.
If sustainability is important to you, a crushed concrete driveway is a great option. The material for our crushed concrete driveways is recycled from previous concrete structures, reducing the need for new materials and lowering the price point. Crushed concrete driveways are significantly lower than what you’ll find with paved asphalt driveways.
Cost of Crushed Concrete Driveways
Factors that impact the cost of crushed concrete driveways include:
Size of area: The larger the driveway, the more material is needed. This will incur a larger price.
Condition of site: The site excavation can impact the cost if there is substantial work that needs to be done to smooth out the area.
