5 tips for storing gravel
When you’re saving up your money and need to store some extra gravel at home, remember to follow these 5 tips to maximize its lifespan.
1. Have enough space. Before you start stacking your gravel, make sure that there is enough room between each layer so that it won’t compact or cave in on itself. Also make sure your piles don’t get too wet or too dry as that can cause the gravel to crumble and crack over time. 2. Keep it covered when not in use. For best results, try covering the entire pile with a tarp or windscreen for best protection from rain and snow in winter months, but also from moisture buildup in the hot summer months to help keep it dry (or humidicided). 3. Stack in the shade. During the summer, try to stack your gravel in a shaded area so that it doesn’t get too hot. This will help to keep it from cracking and splitting apart and will also help it to keep longer – just make sure to set up a windscreen for best results! 4. Give it some ventilation.

Storing Gravel in a wheelbarrow
The best way to store freshly mixed, damp gravel is in a wheelbarrow. You can even mix it directly into the wheelbarrow’s main compartment when it’s completely dry or mix it in a little bit into the main area, as long as it’s not too heavy and will still fit. You can also put in an extra layer of cardboard at the bottom to keep the gravel from sinking down too low. When you’re ready to move the gravel, just fill up your wheelbarrow with water and let it sit overnight.
You can also use a wheelbarrow for other things such as taking leaves in and out of your yard, hauling sand, or moving snow. When storing a wheelbarrow full of gravel, you should leave about an inch of air space at the top to allow for any expansion that might occur. If possible, spray the gravel with water so it stays damp longer.
