I need free online web site with a video or instructions about taking care of a gravel country road. It is not for me. I have successfully taken care of our roads for 15 years. The challenge is a "neighbor" who refuses to believe the road must have drainage ditches on sides for water runoff. She keeps sending her yard-man (with tractor) to fill in the drainage ditches! I need to find good online sources to share with her in order to show her how the roads need to be maintained for proper draining of the water. Thank you.
