    I need dirt------I live in a city------lots of scum and pollution and lead infected
    detritus ----but NO DIRT. I will trade you a traffic jam for a few tons of black
    soil-----preferably with worms. ----how about some asbestos imbedded sheetrock?

    Can you spare a square? *L*

    Yeah even though this property is high and dry the heavy rains can still make drives mushy and muddy, so for traction the compacting honey comb or traction from slab tiles solves those issues.

    Talk about squares, this is interesting,
    But don't know if using pressure treated would save your tires from splinter punctures or look as good without being weathered.
    Would be tedius to do a full drive, but might look good as 2 wide tire tracks with mulch or moss in the center track.

    Maybe a partially burried bark log rounded top waste board spaced out would make a rustic drive and perhaps lumber mills might donate the waste cut or sell them cheap. Someone logging and milling lumber on their own property could utilize the exterior cuts that way and do a nice short rustic drive.

    That'll be mulch and sand in about 3 to 6 years depending on what Zone you are in.. Dont go for fancy. Make sure you have the drainage under control BEFORE you lay anything..
