We have lived in our house (33540) since May 2015. We have an open courtyard next to the barn that will be concreted by our builders at the end of the month-it's full of old roofing tiles so we can't use it for parking at the moment.
Our usual entrance to the back door is via a sloping earth grass & broken tile area. It has been OK but with the recent wet weather & the passage of our car it's getting muddy & slippy. We also park our Hymer Motor-Home in the back garden (whilst the courtyard is out of action) at the moment & it got stuck on the grassy slope before.
I am wondering whether a trailer load or 2 of calcaire that we would spread over the area would quickly do the trick. I usually mow the area so I am not bothered about grass growing through it.
I have several questions.
1. Is it best to get it from a quarry or a bricolage at Duras where I understand they will load our trailer (750kg max)
2. Do I need smaller ones, then larger ones or can I ask for a mix? What do I ask for?
3. Do I have to get a whacker plate or might the levelling & car passage be OK?
Apologies for what are probably daft questions. In the UK I paid others to do the practical stuff! Whole different ball-game over here where cash is getting tighter!
