So I posted previously about re-doing a dirt aisle with stonedust and mats. With the size of the aisle (10x120), it’s a lot of mats to level. For a bit more, we can pour concrete.
However, part of my earlier plan was to run a pex water line the length of aisle and install hydrants so I don’t have to drag my 100 foot hose out each time to fill water troughs on each side of the aisle.
Putting pex under stonedust is fine, but I’m not sure about putting it under concrete. Do people do this? Where do people run their water lines. I have stalls/tack room on each side of the aisle. Pasture on outside of one longside of stalls and indoor on the other.
Last question - aisle is slightly sloped and contractor want to do brush swirl concrete finish (instead of straight finish) to avoid pouring concrete on separate days. Anyone have this finish?
Any advice would be appreciated.
