Earthwork Tips

  • Strip site of all vegetation including grass.
  • Fill stump holes with compacted fill.
  • Level site by means of Cut and/or Fill, always level site larger than the actual slab size (preferably 1000mm larger on all sides).
  • Where fill is used to achieve level site be sure to spread fill layers of approx. 150mm and “wheel roll” each layer for compaction.
  • Make sure to use fill material that is “compactable”.
  • Note: Wheeled equipment will compact fill better than tracked equipment.
