Is compacting sand neccessary?

Postby MrRee » Mon May 03, 2010 10:15 am

I've got compacted dirt, then sand, then rock, then plastic, then concrete. Is compacting the sand neccessary or is it just a waste of time? It seems that it doesn't stay compacted very well. Advice appreciated and thanks in advance. This is for preparing the first floor and we're using one of those small flat bottomed walk behind compacting machines.
