    I am currently building my first EP Henry raised patio, the sqft of the pato is 14x26, the retaining wall is about 18" (3 courses), I have planned on fill the back of the wall with 3/4 clean rock for drainage about up to a 12" back. I was wondering if I should just use 21A to fill the rest of the raised patio...about 13'x25' or compacted fill dirt??

    2nd question, if I were to use 21A as fill material, should use the separation fabric at the bottom between the dirt/red clay and 21A -or- fill 21A up to a certain portion after compaction and lay out the fabric higher up? After all this rain we are getting in the Mid-atlanic, I'm start filling tomorrow.
