Hey guys. I am building my house on some property that I have owned for a while. The land is really wet and you cant dig deep enough to dig footers without hitting water so I want to build the area up a couple feet and then dig the footers into the new fill. The soil is mostly yellow clay that compacts really well. How do I go about compacting the fill material so that it is suitable for digging a foundation into? I have a TD-20 I was going to use to compact it. Do I just need to do like three inch lifts and then track back and forth on it or do I need to get a compacter out there? This house is going to be in the family for a while so I dont want any complications in the future.
