Chalk this way!
A cost effective alternative to a concrete slab. We were approached by a lady that keeps horses, she needed a hard-standing to the entrance of her field desperately before the wet weather made it impassable once more. Although recommended, a concrete hard-standing was not financially possible so we needed to look for other options.
So, digging out the boggy area, we filled it back up with a tough cobble chalk which, once rolled and compacted, forms a hard, level surface, enabling the area to be used without issue.
