    You just demonstrated the layer used in Mechanically Stabilizing Earth like they do on road subsurface for ramps and main roads as well as retaining walls.

    I am not a huge fan of geotextile fabric as rock will net you the same result and is cheaper and easier to obtain, at least where I live.

    Geotextile can strengthen soil so,it usually used on road building.Also geotextile can be used with geomembrane as protection layer.

    I used silt fence which is made of geotextile fabric, but much, much, much cheaper. Created a gravel path through a mud hole, giving me a nice path to the river.

    We use this fabric for 2 uses where I work. We lay concrete storm pipe & drains. If we are setting a manhole for example & the ground is to soft or wet, we put down a layer of fabric, then stone before setting the concrete boxes. They also wrap the connections (bell & spicket sp?) ends of every pipe to prevent dirt getting in the pipes.

    Very Nice Demo! Soft soil will ruin anyone's day and especially for a long term solution to avoid down the road nightmares.

    First be sure to put holes in the bottom of the pool (like 2ftx2ft) or better yet break up the entire bottom so it doesn't hold water. Then yes 2 layers, with about a foot of dirt in between, and at least a foot of dirt over the top layer.

    Hey I am filling my pool, would you recommend two layers of fabric? Too at what depth do they need to be and how much dirt between the two layers of fabric?
