I en­joyed your ar­ti­cle on page 26 of the July is­sue (Down on the Farm, about lay­ing a farm track).

I re­ceived some valu­able ad­vice when I cre­ated my farm roads. I was rec­om­mended to lay mud cloth which I ob­tained from Per­ma­th­ene in Auck­land. It was rel­a­tively in­ex­pen­sive and pre­vents the ag­gre­gate from sink­ing and mud from ooz­ing up.

I used crushed con­crete which com­pacted very well and in many places the fines set like con­crete be­cause of the ce­ment con­tent. A friend whom I rec­om­mended to fol­low this ad­vice didn’t and now one year later is hav­ing to add ag­gre­gate in high traf­fic and wet ar­eas. This time he will lay mud cloth first.
