The slab approach has worked out for me up to this point, no call backs, no unfortunate situation like DVS had. With that be said, if the dense grade/geo combo can save me $ on time/material end i am going to implement it. Tom, Is there a specific grade geo fabric you prefer?
I'm glad it has worked out for you!

There is not a specific grade fabric we use. We buy it through our hardscape supply yard in 12' rolls. We use Mirafi. And when we use geo-grid we just use the same stuff we use behind our walls.

I have a question for you since you do a slab. Do you mix your own concrete or do you get it delivered in a concrete truck? The reason I ask is because we have found we can get or aggregate compacted to a higher psi than if we mixed the concrete our self. And if we want a higher psi concrete from a truck the minimum they will deliver is usually way more than what we need so its not cost effective.

And I will say if the slab has worked out for you so far there is probably no reason to change.

Anyone can run equipment, very few can operate.
