I'm replacing my patio and over the last few weeks ripped out the old one, levelled and then started to bring in the type 1. Unfortunately the night before I brought in the type 1 it chucked it down with rain so the ground was pretty wet (puddles, mud etc), brought just over half the type 1 in and attempted to compact with a heavy duty whacker but the type 1 was just churning up and going 'mushy' rather than compacting down. In hindsight it was obviously far too wet as it carried on raining throughout the day too. The ground hasn't properly dried out yet as I only did this Sunday and its rained every day since but when it has been drier and i've popped out there the type 1 is still soft (ie, I can make a footprint in it if I push down). My question is do I just need to leave it to dry out properly over a few dry days and then run the whacker over it again so that it compacts down properly? Or have a made a massive balls up laying it in the first place and am I going to need to pull it up and start all over again. I'm concerned all i've done by running the whacker over it is bring the mud and water up through the type 1 and that it now wont compact down properly even when its dried out. If I just need to let it dry out would you recommend getting a few tarps over it for the next week or so as its forecast to rain pretty much every day now until the end of the month. Thanks in advance, appreciate any advice!!
