Subbases and Subgrades. A reasonably uniform subgrade or subbase, with no abrupt changes in support, is ideal for any concrete pavement. Most native soils are not too uniform and thus require some improvement or additional layers to compensate. A subbase is a thin layer of material placed on top of the prepared subgrade.
