Question DetailsAsked on 8/20/2017

Is nature stone good to use over a concrete driveway in northeast Ohio?

I recently had my three car garage done with nature stone and love it! I would like to have my walkway and driveway done with the same nature stone. I am worried how well it will hold up under our harsh winter weather and all the snow. I'm afraid the snow plow may damage the stone. What do you think? Please advise me. I do not know anyone else that has nature stone in my area.

I have never heard of it being used on drives - can't imagine an epoxy product is going to work well for that, plus likely to be way more slippery than you want for a driveway, especially if in an area with ice or snow.

I would contact the manufacturer - but their website, while talking about foot traffic areas like walks and pool decks, says nothing about vehicular traffic areas.

You CAN achieve a similar effect with stained concrete which can be done on a well cleaned existing surface, or exposed aggregate concrete which can be done after-the-fact by pressure or shot blasting the surface - google for images of those to see what they look like. There are also shake-on products designed for use on newly placed concrete which are similar to nature stone's effect - but to do that now would require an overlay, which on driveways commonly tend to pop off within 5 years or so, so I wouldnot recommend that.
