Re: Fixing a Mud Hole

Finding out that different people use different terminology for the stuff I'm supposedly getting. Talk to a friend of mine this morning that he called it wash out, the stuff that they dump when cleaning out the concrete delivery trucks. He says it will make a pretty good base, but not necessarily help my mud hole.

Washout works pretty good for a topper, but it's hit or miss whether anyone at the readymix places has any available when you need it. It gets sold pretty quick around here.

Since figuring out what it really is I figured out I can only use it as a base and to spread on my driveway. I'm not going to waste any on the mud hole, so I'll fix it a different way once it dries out. The truck driver I talked to says there are several places around that beg people to haul the wash out off and give it away.
