Stabilizing Pea Gravel?

16 years ago

I have a large backyard, with 150+' x 5' wide pea gravel walkways.

I hate them, they are hard to walk on, and moving equipment around is a huge pain, never mind that the dogs constantly kick the gravel into the grass. The gravel in some places is as much as 4" thick, so removing it is really the last thing I want to do. (The previous owners thought a pea gravel front yard would be nice as well - so I already have that on my plate to remove).

I was wondering if anyone has tried to stabilize pea gravel using concrete sand, DG, or other material and tamping? Thanks in advance.
