Where soil that has a poor resistance to loads (sandy soil, clay, turf, etc.) the foundation will need to be redesigned. For each stay or pole planted, two pockets of cement are to be added to the excavated soil. This is to be thoroughly mixed, moistened, then layered in 150mm layers and compacted with a hand-compactor weighing no less than 13kg. Compaction is to continue until no further settlement occurs. Once complete, the next 150mm layer is to be laid and compacted. This is to continue until the hole is filled with the compacted sand/cement mix. The soil condition must be approved by a professional engineer.
