Gravel Driveway Border

Hello all,

I have a gravel driveway, and am looking into replacing some type of wooden border on the trim which would run the length of the driveway. I am thinking of pressure treated, but I am unsure of what size I should use and how I should anchor it.

Keep in mind that I am writing from PEI Canada and the winters can be a little harsh.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Instead of wood, how about large stones such as 8" to 10" river rocks?

Something else to keep in mind, if you've got harsh winters - assuming that means plenty of ice and snow - do you really want to edge your driveway at all? It would be prone to damage by snow removal equipment as well as could damage your vehicle if you should lose control on the ice and snow or miss the driveway that's covered in snow.
