How to lay a road?

How to lay Kerbs - Aggregate
I am uncertain how you would look at this, but alternatively of landscape fabric that i might need buy, I did a test using carpeting. I have a buddy with a carpet shop therefore the old carpet he rips out would go to the landfill. And so I diverted some to make use of as road stabilizer under sugar sand. Some carpet is made of synthetic therefore I do not especially like incorporating a non biodegradable towards earth, but I'd to-do something to firm up the road.

The sugar sand is practically liquid whenever operating heavy vehicles across it, it sort of splashes into the sides of this drive. The loose sand slows and sometimes prevents 2WD automobiles. It also stopped my vehicle in 4WD when I ended up being pulling a 20K pound trailer.

We used my tractor to scrape down 6 inches of sand, set the carpet down, and covered it with sand. It's been down a-year and I simply had the farm signed. About 120 a lot of logs, with truck and loaded truck evaluating really more than 60K pounds crossed the road part with carpeting. The carpeted area held up well much better than the uncarpeted areas, doesn't slow or end cars, and my just issue is occasionally the sides regarding the carpet got pulled up.

I think the 6 ins of sand need already been about 10 or 12 inches instead, but i am afraid that much sand will not keep the road hardness I"m shopping for. I might have to crack open the wallet to get some gravel to hold the carpeting ahead of the sand continues.
