I noticed over the past few months that some of you guys swear by it. I personally have never seen it being used in NY. However, I have a customer that has a terrible concrete driveway, a real anklebreaker. they want me to rip it out and put the base down now, then do the pavers in the spring and I'm interested in using geotex if thats the best way to do the job. This is my first paver drieway, I want it to hold up well. Now hand in hand with this, I do my borders on a 6" concrete footing and mortared down. I've caught heat on here for doing it this way but I'm justifying it by looking at asphalt guys that don't use geotex and also set their paver and cobblestone borders on the same style concrete footing. I know that asphalt isnt permeable to water like pavers so maybe this is the reason that they don't, but it doesnt explain away the footings. I know to be real load bearing footings they would need to be below the frost line, but the driveway or patio is not below the frost line, and therefore moves with the frost. Do I put the footings on the geotex, or let the geotex come to the inside of the footing? call me an idiot for doing it on footings but around here many contractors do and those who use plastic snap edge are looked down on as mower jockeys. I'll throw a few pics on showing my footing system for those that cant visualize it Really no way to use a plastic edge restraint on half of this walkway anyway. and here is a blacktop drive that i removed and excavated for new base and pavers to be installed. (not my job, just hired for the excavating and hauling.) cobblestone borders on concrete footings to be left in place.
