So now that I have my tractor I plan on attempting to expand my driveway and it needs about 8ft of dirt at the highest point.
Moving fill dirt is one thing but I would like recommendations on how to compact the dirt. I'm not sure if a walk behind tamper/vibratory is enough if I did it every six inches or not. I plan on doing about a 8-12in gravel fill prior to the tipping... Which I don't know if I will asphalt this year or the next to settle. So thoughts on compacting? I know I can rent anything but I like to work on my time so the cheapest is usually my preference... Unless I could just buy a walk behind for a reasonable. Jumping jack out of the question?
I'm not sure if the pictures help or not but I was considering a retaining wall ( So I could have space to access the rear of the property to the left.) but the home already has a small driveway extention without a wall. I lose real estate but it works...for now. So I figured I would backfill and see how I feel about the space. Btw many of the trees in that area are gone already.
