    Concrete deckin without gravel base

    I live in NJ and one or two concrete decking contractors were to pour the decking without gravel base. They would compact and use mesh but ****, no gravel. Ive never heard of that . Would this be acceptable with the freeze-thaw and Clay soil I have.

    Thanks

    Preparation is the key to any concrete job and I have always learned that 3-4 " of rock is mandatory underneath concrete.

    Down here in Texas, we just plop the concrete on the ground.

    No idea how it's suppose to be done in your area.
