- 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.
