  • Resurfacing driveways

All Tailgate spreading is up to the drivers discretion. If you purchase Tailgate Spreading and we are unable to provide this service we will refund you for services not rendered. The gravel will be left onsite or is non refundable.

Special Note:

This technique is not perfect and may require some hand spreading on your part to create an even distribution of the gravel.
