1eStar: Yeah any of those nonwoven cloths will do. As others have said, get your drainage sorted first. The fabric separation provides some strength, but ultimately the thicker you make your aggregagate the stronger it is and the more load it will take without deformation.
I was walking this morning on an area of that naturalpave plastic reinforcement. It appears to have been placed directly on clay, has only experienced foot traffic and has failed dramatically.

 

 

 

You say non-woven , but I found this is a woven material " MUDSTOP" how would this product differ ?

The non-woven is more permeable, hence more versatile for use around drainage material and is why it's commonly specified. In your situation if your drainage is sorted, technically you could use either.

kryptonjohn:

 

Why do you need to stabilise it - clay won't move.

 

 

 Oh yes it does.

 

We had a house once, dropped straight on a clay section with no topsoil.

 

It made gardening a PITA, you needed a jackhammer in summer and it was a muddy mess in winter. And the house started to move.

surprised ...... all the houses here in the new subdivision are built on clay sections with no topsoil

 

Gardening and landscaping is a pain

 

I've bought one of these Power Planter , it's working good so far for digging easily into the clay for plants and posts :)
