    How many of you test your soils before a pavement job ? I do the obvious roll the soil in a ball and drop it test. How many actually take a bore for a patio job ? Be honest .

    I do one of the several field tests, but I have never had it tested in a lab. All of our soils are clay anyway.

    Never did any lab test. If i sign a driveway, i'd drop the dough on a lab test.
