    I think the aim with the underlay is to provide a sort of thickish spongy layer to avoid stones poking through or wearing the butyl or whatever liner you have - not sure that weed control fabric would do this.  I've always found a layer of old carpet serves the purpose admirably, or thick sand packed down.

  • If yoir soil is free of stones then it should o.k Depending on shape , sand is good but if sides are steep then it is likely to finish up in the bottom of the hole.

  • thanks guys.
