 stone in the grass

Today in northern Ohio we reached the 60 degree point for the first time since like October of last year. I have a driveway that is 600 feet long. I spent the better part of 3 hours raking #57 stone out of the grass from plowing. Every year I tell myself I am going to be more carefull with the plow, and with about 100" of snow here in Nor-Ohio I still spent 1/2 a day raking. When the snow starts to melt I always drag the mounds of snow and gravel back into the drive to reduce the labor and time. What a bitch. Anyone else with some new blisters?

 stone in the grass

I have a 300' drive (w/ 2B stone, 3/4" and smaller) and I have the same problem. I usually try to push the snow to the same locations throughout the snow season, but this years 2ft. storm put an end to that. Now the gravel in the grass is continuous for the entire 300'. My first solution is that I use a box blade to plow... a properly tilted blade does minimize picking up stones. Second, I also shovel the stones (suspended in the snow) back onto the drive before it starts to melt. Lastly, when all the snow is gone, I get out my shovel, rakes, and my shop-vac... yes, I said shop-vac. You'd be surprised how well it works and it's not as back-breaking. The only problem is suppling electric for 300' (I used a generator once). My neighbors probably think I'm crazy, but they all have paved drives, so they wouldn't understand.
