Site Supporter ++
- Jan 24, 2011
My only thing is I need to make sure it is reinforced to support about 3ft of dirt that will be above the container. Im think that I will keep a 3 foot space on the side unless someone thinks that would be a bad idea. Any ideas or different contraction ideas would be awesome.
One of the major advantages is that it doesn't compact or slump and should last forever. And it is surprisingly inexpensive. Depending on your proximity to an EPS plant, truckiing may be an issue. This stuff may be just what you need for backfilling a container.
