Question

I need to pave my driveway for safety (prevent slipping on slope). I would like to do it as enviromentally friendly as possible. Best way?

Asked by Eva

Location is Seattle. Currently there is no paving, cement, or asphalt. Just hard rock. Also how would I locate a contractor able to do the work?

Answer

Concrete is about as green as it gets. Make sure the finish is a broomed finish to resist slipping.
