I'm finally getting to a paver job I've wanted to do for a long time. I
picked up a few yards of Class II base ( I guess it's also known as 3/4
crush with stone dust, etc. ) Assuming the grade is firm ( with clay
like soil ), and I lay a bed of approximately 4" thick, how much can I
expect that to compress down to? 1/2", 3/4", 1"?? Reason being, if
it'll compress, say, 1/2" then I want to lay it at 4 1/2" to get my 4"
compacted. I'll be renting a 5 hp reversible plate compactor. Do you
need any more info before giving a guess?? Thanks in advance!!!
