    Ok so I got a call today from a potential customer who wants a paver walkway, Ok no problem except for their is alot of run off from the street and the neighbor sits about 3ft up from where this walk way will sit, plus the house sits directly on the bottom side of a mountain, so their is run off from every end, I advised the customer we will do a wall back filled with 3/4 crushed stone and pipe it out to the back of the house, now the question is can a normal base such as recycled concrete or item 4 with stand the run off, or is this a bad idea or should I use straight 3/4 crushed gravel and geo fabric this way the base still drains efficiently. Also their is all concrete in place now so all that will come up. Any advise would be great
