Hey dudes, I'm wanting to harden a dirt car port floor. It's not used as a car port though, so it will only have foot traffic. At the moment it is just a compacted dirt floor. I'm thinking of trying out soil cement, but I have a very heavy clay soil. From what I've read, clay soils aren't ideal. Has anyone had any experience with soil cement with clay soils? Would it work if I just tilled in some sand to get a looser soil? Also, if you guys can think of any alternatives that are more environmentally friendly, I would love to hear them. Like I said, the space is just foot traffic, and wont even see much of that. Thanks
I would not bother with additives of any kind.
Find aggregate/ stones/ upto 10mm in size and pour over the ground.
I have used white pebbles about 12mm in size so I can see the ground in the moon light.
You can collect the gravel from the roadside after a new surface has been applied, or evn buy it.
I have had great success with it.
