  • will lead to failure of the concrete after your investment of time labor and money 5 Lay out the sides of your driveway You can do this by driving small wooden or metal stakes at points where the drive will egress the street then at the end point near your home then tying builder s line on them to help you visualize the path of the driveway 6 Measure the width of the drive so that it corresponds with the plan you have made This may be an appropriate step to consider the width you will build in A minimum width for a typical residential driveway is about eight feet but even for a single lane drive ten or twelve feet is better For two lane drives sixteen feet should be considered minimum 7 Remove any sod or other vegetation from the driveway location after you have established the edges with builder s line Note again if the soil is particularly soft or unstable you will want to remove enough so that a suitable fill material can be placed under the driveway as you build Note that in very cold climates a capillary fill material like crushed stone or gravel is desirable to prevent cracks from forming and enlarging due to water expansion during freezing conditions 8 Determine if there are any underground utilities that should be modified or installed before adding fill material or setting forms Some typical ones might be conduits for outdoor lighting or power water lines for irrigation as well as telephone lines or potable water lines for you home Your property may also slope in such a way as to require an underground stormwater drainage pipe to transfer surface water from one side of your drive to another or you may abut the street where water flows perpendicular to the new drive requiring a culvert pipe to be installed so this flow is not impacted 9 Install the forms for your driveway Typically these will be 1x4 or 2x4 nominal lumber anchored with wooden stakes sufficiently to support the form boards These stakes are driven into the soil with a sledgehammer at a spacing to keep the formboards on grade and straightly aligned For curving drives masonite or plywood that is strong enough to support the concrete load but flexible enough to bend for radii may be needed 10 Grade the fill material or existing soil so that your slab of concrete will be the correct depth or thickness Usually driveways are at least four inches thick for heavier vehicles or difficult to stabilize soil conditions thicker concrete is suggested Grading is done by placing a straightedge or tying a string across the top of your forms and measuring down to the soil to the correct depth Remove or add fill material with a shovel You may also want to thicken the edges or make them deeper for additional strength and to decrease the likelihood of cracking Often these small monolithic footings are eight inches
