I have an area about 30 yards long on my property that used to be an old logging road. It's extremely muddy. In the spring I get a bit of standing water and the area is pretty muddy. I would guess its about 6-12 inches deep of mud. In the fall the area is pretty dry. I have been working on this area for awhile now. I want to use it as a place to park my boat. I have dug a trench about 2 feet wide and 18" deep running parallel down the middle with one trench going off into a large hole (Not large enough) and filled it with 3/4 inch stone. This helped a little, but I dont really have a big enough area for the water to drain This is the lowest point of my property. I am thinking the only way to get rid of the mud/standing water/mosquitoes is to build the area up. I was planning on digging a couple more trenches crossways across the area. Filling those with gravel and bringing in some larger stone. Packing that down tight and making a sort of driveway. My question... How do I do this? This does connect to the road. Im sure I would need some sort of culvert in the ditch. What type of equipment should I rent to spread the stone? Is there some type of equipment I can rent that would spread and pack the stone all in one? Im also planning on using a mixed gravel to help pack it in. Eventually, Im planning on covering it with topsoil and planting grass. Any help/suggestions would be wonderful.
