Planning A Concrete Slabs In Your Garden

Concrete is the ideal material for laying a slab for a shed, patio or driveway. Once you’ve mastered the techniques of mixing and casting it, you can provide a hard durable surface that will last for years.

A concrete slab can be a tough, hard-wearing base for a variety of uses in your garden, but its success is only as good as the preparation you’ve put into making it. Concrete consists of stone particles called ‘aggregate’, bonded with a Portland cement and water mix. You must mix the ingredients carefully, cast the slab on specially prepared foundations, apply a finishing texture, and allow the concrete to set properly, if your results are to be long-lasting.
