All you need is a vehicle capable of towing our trailer and unless you’re a pro, you’ll probably need help to pour your own concrete.

4 SACK MIX: light duty, suitable for fence post, grouting block on small block wall, etc.

What does it mean to “cure” concrete?
Curing is one of the most vital steps when working with concrete. In order for concrete to settle correctly, a sufficient amount of moisture is needed to allow the cement to harden. This usually takes anywhere from 5 to 7 days. This can be accomplished by soaking with hoses or sprinklers.
What is the correct mix-proportion for cement?
A good rule is to use the “rule of 6s.” This rule is as follows: 6 bags of cement per cubic yard of concrete; no more than 6 gallons of water per bag of cement; and a minimum of 6 days for curing.
