Large Crack In Sidewalk

This large crack in the sidewalk is a good sign that there is a movement in the soil. The soil could be expansive. Looking at this a little closer I found a sprinkler next to the post holding up the front patio. The weight from the patio along with them water saturating into the ground increases the chances for expansive soil to expand.

Notice the driveway slopes down a little bit towards the sidewalk. This could create a safety problem if someone trips and falls. A good safety tip would be to paint the sloping strip of concrete red to make it more noticeable.

This could be a problem for young children as well as elderly people.
