Step 1

Dig to the required depth in the earth. Establish the required depth by measuring the concrete slab's height. If the soil is generally damp or has a high proportion of clay, add 2 inches to the depth for gravel. Most concrete slabs will be 1 to 2 inches higher than the ground and 2 to 3 inches below the dirt's surface, requiring 3 to 5-inch hole depth.

Step 2

To create a level surface, use the flat side of a rake to smooth out the ground. Any low locations should be filled up with soil.

Step 3

Use a hand or mechanical tamper to compact the soil. A hand tamper is a long, slender pole with a flat metal base and two side grips. Most hardware stores rent mechanical tampers, which come with instructions on how to operate them. The earth is compacted by the tamper. Walking across the completed product should scarcely leave tracks.

Step 4

For further drainage, pour 2 inches of tiny, rounded pebbles. Tap the rock until it is flat and smooth.
