Separate your gravel from your Clay enemy,(soil), with Geo fabric,(filter fabric), which allows water to pass through and acts as a filter!

If I had, I would have wished for 6" of 1/4" pea gravel!

Way to go Norm, good question! Getting to where the rubber meets the (gravel) road! grin

Damn, I wish we could get that for a reasonable cost up here. Everything here it volcanic cinders and crushed basaltic type stuff.

I grew up with DG, makes a damn fine packed driveway, and easy to walk on barefoot.

Wiki ^^^^^.

BTW, I think wiki leaks because they used the wrong gravel. Or it doesn't have any clay in it.

I keep hearing that. I think aliens are playing it in my head.

Speaking of holes, how deep and wide would, you know, a good size hole be, if it was too small to start with and what would you recommend for making the small hole more bigger??

Just to be clear- gravel does not occur in nature. It by definition requires handling, some sort of process-ees. It must be crushed, cleaned, sorted, sifted, or washed to be gravel, otherwise it's rocks.

Or cobble. Could be cobble I suppose.

Solid points. Clean washed gravel in front of the garage. Never packs, needs fines added. Clean gravel no packy. Not like Bob's bum, it packy just fine.
