Thicker Sub-base to prevent GA clay tint gravels???
I posted the same thread a while ago, but I did not catch any flood to take a picture of. Here is the picture I took this morning. It did not rain whole lot to make the mud coming to the top. The standing water you see in the picture is actually not bad, compared to the mess after heavy rainfalls.
I have had a lose gravel for some of my yard. I did not read a how-to but just went ahead doing a lousy job. What I lack now is the "compact sub-base." I guess it is why all of my gravel is TINTED with Georgia clay color (gravel with terra cotta tint:very ugly, mind you). Because GA clay is so dense, it does not drain quick enough. I have had puddles of terra cotta rain water floating on the gravel each time when there is a heavy rainfall.
So,, then I read the how-to and posted a question before here. I have gotten all great info about how to do it. My question now is: would THICKER compact sub-base prevent the problem of tinted rain water floating on the gravel?
