How Do You Prepare the Ground For a Concrete Driveway? Gravel? Wire Mesh?
I live in Northeast TN, with rather clay soil. I'm thinking of pouring a driveway myself (in very thin slab portions so I can manage it myself). I'd like to make it about Four 5 inches thick with wire mesh in it.
I'm just curious about what the ground needs to be prepared? Do I need to put gravel as a base? If so, how thick and what kind? Do I need to put anything else down to get it prepped?
I'm a newbie to any concrete work, but I'm a very fast learner so if I could've some tips that'd be great.
