This is the Monday before I start my install on Friday. In preparation for the big event I have had to plan what tools and materials I am going to need. Today I had pool filter sand #20 from Leslie's Pool supplies delivered. I needed about 1,600 pounds of sand for the fill so I had 32 fifty-pound bags delivered today.
I have ordered my sub-base material from Valley Rock supplies in Loomis, CA. On Friday they will be delivering 4.5 cubic yards of road base II and 2.5 cubic yards of compactable arena sand. I have purchased contractor grade weed fabric and PL375 glue for the seams. I am having a hard time finding the nails that I need, 60D galvanized common nails, so far Lowe's and Home Depot have not had Galvanized 60D nails. I was only able to find a few at Walmart of all places.
I plan on renting a plate compactor and a landscaping rake from the Home Depot on Friday.
