So I have another thread on my pond with great advice.
My larger project is finishing my driveway. I have a 438 ft dirt driveway built up 18 inches above ground level that I need to finish off. Whats the next layer I should put down? I've heard ash but I hear all sorts of different kinds and then the gravel. Should I put that geotextile down before anything?

My dirt contractor dug out the topsoil to the clay base and back filled with clay to the surface level then put a layer of topsoil on top and packed it. Its hard and packed right now. It has good drainage on both sides with swells dug to a frontage ditch to catch the run off.
So should I just go with gravel now or allow it to pack over the summer first. I haven't seen it with a solid rain yet. I was thinking of putting a layer of ash down for the summer and then adding gravel in several months after the ash has packed.
