At the lake what I do is wait until we have a little snow and then pack it down hard and use that as the base layer. I keep the blade above that level so I don't plow the gravel.

Plowing Driveway

Been there, done that. First I line my driveway with 36" tall refelector rods right on the edge. Second set your plow shoes 1 1/2" off the ground. I use a 2 X 4 on the flat to set the height. Then don't plow past the edge of the driveway. If you leave a little snow it packs down and makes a good base for the next time. I don't clean up stones any more in the spring. Have fun

Same thing I deal with doing driveways and parking lots with a truck. Mark the edges of your rock and be sure to lift the plow a couple inches off the ground before going into the rocks. After you drive over them a bit and pack the snow down you can plow right over it till it gets soft again.

Is the driveway paved with gravel at the edges? If so then disregard setting the plow at 1 1/2 above or using the plow shoes. As mentioned above mark the edges to avoid the gravel. After a few times you will be a pro and the gravel won't even be an issue. Just take your time.
