    Here's a few photos from my job today. Treated corral board borders, a few 4" cross-drains, geotextile fabric and 5" of compacted base. Tomorrow the driveway will get a 1" topping of Red River peagravel.

    Finished off the job today. A nice rain shower came through along with a nice breeze. I got soaked to my socks, but it did cool it down nicely.

    Nice work!! I understand being "picky" I am picky when working for others, but seemed to waiver on my personal projects, IDK why Thanks for the photos,

    Thanks for sharing I enjoyed it. Really like the gravel drive with the red river rock. From your experience how does it hold up over time?

    Well, it's pea gravel, so if it's put in too thick it'll move all over the place, and it does take more maintenance. I don't suggest it for an everyday driveway, especially if the drive has turns in it. This particular driveway will be used mainly for parking their small RV. I don't like doing borders since I have to get off the machine , but it will help hold the material in place. I have my supplier mix a brown colored base with screenings and then compact the base real tight, then top it with no more than 2" of pea gravel. If the base shows through over time, at least its brown in color. When a customer wants small aggregate I like to put crushed screenings down over the base instead of pea gravel since it holds together better, but some folks really want the "look".

    Screenings spread over the top of a re-graded driveway.

    The other day I saw a skid steer clearing off a lot for a new home in a subdivision up the street from my place. Since the soil here is pretty poor clay I figured they'd be excavating, importing select fill and compacting before digging the foundation. I guess I was wrong. Coming back from lunch today I saw that they had started forming for concrete. The soil in and around the forms is fluffed-up fill and the finish elevation is over a foot below the street level. This is in an area of very poor drainage as well. I guess I should title these photos, How Not To Build A House Pad?
