A geotextile driveway fabric placed between the sub-base and the gravel surface in a driveway has many benefits. Chief among them are reducing ruts and potholes, preventing "pumping" and reducing the need to replace the rock surface of your driveway every few years. It also offers benefits for your asphalt or concrete driveway by reducing cracking and prolonging life.
US 200 is the geotextile that we recommend for the typical residential driveway. Some job-specific conditions may require utilizing a heavier stabilization fabric. We are happy to discuss this with you.
US 200 is a woven stabilization geotextile. Some companies promote a nonwoven for driveways. A nonwovens' primary function is as a filter fabric and not a stabilizer. Woven geotextiles provide the crucial stabilization/separation required, while still allowing plenty of water to pass. In addition, a nonwoven geotextile stretches much more than a woven geotextile, which makes a nonwoven geotextile a less appealing option for driveways.
