The landscaping on either side of your driveway or private road is known as the drive side. Most driveways and roads are somewhat elevated so that water drains safely away and doesn't pose a hazard or damage the paving. Unfortunately, that means the flowing water can wreak havoc on your landscaping within the drive side.
Causes of Drive Side Erosion
Drive side erosion can occur on only one side of the drive, or it may occur on both sides.
