Do you wait to tamp everything in when all the block is laid? Or do you do it in sections? Just curious because of the scope of some of your projects. I've only done small stuff (where the block only took 1-2 days max to lay), so I'm curious on stuff that takes a lot longer?

Usually if they don't have rain incoming, they'll let it go until the end to do an initial compaction. If there's rain they'll compact in sections. If we are doing a large section, and need to drive a skidloader accross, initial compaction will be done and plywood laid.

Final compaction obviously is done right after sanding.
