Grading/leveling nasty terrain

Posted by Jack on February 26th, 2003 06:03 PM

Vehicle parking for my apartment complex is located on either side of the small street which runs out front. On the side with the apartments, the street is nice and paved, with a curb, parking strip, etc. This fills quickly, however, forcing most to park on the unpaved dirt strip across the street. Normally this is okay--until it rains. This dirt strip is very uneven; the depressed parts become small lakes, and the whole thing becomes a muddy mess. Short of the expense of having someone come out and professionally grade and pave this area, is there a cheaper solution to keep from having to put on hip waders to get into and out of my car? I had the wild idea to fill in the big depressions with gravel, thus covering the mud and displacing the water. Is this even feasible? Is there some other solution for keeping this are from turning completely into soup? Thanks for your attention...
