    Thinking of having this aggregate laid down on our drive. Does anyone know of any long term problems we may come across.

    it falls off.

    literaly. doesnt matter what type of stone it is, it will fall off where it is, unless you have a "border" to keep it where ever you put it (if you see what i am trying to say)

    Breezer,
    It will indeed have a brickwork border to keep it all in.

    and at the bottom? (where drive meets road)

    other thing is it moves. my garden has a slight slope from left to right, although its only walked on, a couple of times a year i shovel it from the bottom of the slope back up again.

    Breezer,
    Our drive actually slopes upward at the bottom (or entrance which ever way you want to look at it). My wife and I really like the clean look it gives the property in which it sits (Cotswold stone I mean)

    The lighter coloured decorative stones can go green / browny over time as well. Something else to bear in mind.
