what is the grade of your driveway?

OK basically grade is rise over run expressed as a percentage (for those that don't know)

For instance my driveway drops 5" over the length of a 48" level resulting in a grade of
10.4%

Re: what is the grade of your driveway?

Unfortunately, my current place has a negative slope (-3%) which forces all the rain into the garage.

Re: what is the grade of your driveway?

I give it a B for originality, but the potholes are not spaced evenly, so I'd have to say a C+ overall.

Be thankful you do not have the Laguna Corkscrew driveway then.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.
