pea stone driveway

Yep, that's what I said. These guys went to town next door "fixing" the driveway. Maybe I don't understand something the HO's thinking. This is going to end up all over the lawn when they plow in the winter. First person who drove in got slippery on the marbles in the driveway.

What do you guys think? Not so bad? Ridiculous? This is never going to pack down is it?

I've seen that on large European estates. Some show on HGTV. Usually there is a gardener that rakes it perfectly smooth after a car drives over it.
2 years ago I did a river rock driveway. 120 feet long, 15 feet wide out on old Highway 95. 35 yards of rock at a cost of $4500 installed. It was absolutely stunning. The next week the HO had me remove it and replace it with 3/4 gravel at a cost of $11,800. Just too damn bumpy and slippery. It was beautiful though.
