Default Stones for Driveway Recommendation

Hi, we're looking to put down loose stones in our Moutlonborough driveway and need a contractor, time is of the essence as our daughter is getting married on June 30th at the Castle in the Clouds, and we want everything to look nice, any recommendations? Thanks!

I realize gravel/stone looks nicer but would recommend ledge pack unless you want to keep adding/raking stone after each winter.

In terms of a contractor, call John Schlemmer at 603-455-8346. He did my driveway and is very good. My driveway was a complete disaster before he worked on it. He's in Moultonborough as well.

Default Nit-Pack

My local (Merrmack) supplier calls it "Nit-Pack". About 3/4" granite mixed with stone dust (decomposed granite). My landscaper installed it with a Bobcat. It packs well with rain and driving. Depending on snow/ice conditions the plow doesn't tear it up much. I re-dress it every five years or so to keep it looking fresh. The supplier sells, mulch, gravel, loam etc as his only business, so it is not a garden center selling a bit here and there as a sideline. It may have a different name in Moultonborough.
