Getting close with our build. We need about 150 to 200 ft of driveway on our wooded lot after construction is complete. Area to driveway is clear and flat currently has m10 on it. Its dusty. What can we use as a final drive? No concrete or blacktop. What are some good cheap options? Im in Georgia. Thanks.

Google is your friend. The common old-fashioned dust control is calcium chloride, applied yearly. There are now several proprietary dust control applications that may be better.

I am assuming that m10 is gravel driveway. We have a 450 ft gravel driveway as our drive and it works great. Just needs refresher gravel every year or two. Not much problem with dust since the record rainfall this year.

m10 from what I understand from my builder is much smaller than gravel. Its like a large grain sand. I thought it would be great, but when its dry, it has a lot of dust.

"The common old-fashioned dust control is calcium chloride, applied yearly."

You are going to have a lot of dust if you try annual applications of calcium chloride.
