Start with the base.

Hey Jerome,

No matter what you end up doing preparation of the driveway is of the utmost importance.

I'd recommend removing the grass and dirt with the use of a sodcutter. You'll literally have to cut the driveway down about 6" below the level you ultimately want it at.

Come back with some class 5 limestone for a base, usually costs about $150-250 per 10 yards. Class 5 works well as a paver base, or a base for concrete, and it should be down for at least one full year before you put the new driveway down.

The total cost of this project is about $250. It will look nice, doesn't track on the carpets, and will lead to the finished product of asphalt or concrete.
