Just bought 20 acres (closed last friday). Anyway, it's raw land - will be building a house on it someday. Now, we're starting off with a 'barndominium.'
First things first...I need a driveway. It will be about 600' long. The soil is sandy loam / clay. Was looking for any tips? My father-in-law has an old cat d4 dozer we'll be using. Plan is take the top soil off, see how deep the loam is, and go from there. Thoughts are making sure there's proper drainage on both sides, lime stabilizing the clay, adding stabilized clay if the sandy loam is deep (taking it out and replacing it), then crushed limestone on top. If only it was easy as it sounds.
If anyone has done this before, do you have any suggestions? Maybe a quick 'how to'?
