Concrete Mixes

I was part of a discussion recently regarding concrete mixes (right mix for right job) and the self mix Vs kerb mix Vs ready mix argument. Everyone has different needs/quantities and ways of working so it was interesting to observe the different answers.

As I'm about to do some 'self' inflicted landscaping at home, I was tracking down local supplies and prices and came across this useful webpage (to me, anyway) defining the main concrete mixes.

So, listed here for information purposes (click & scroll down):

  • THats handy thanks, would be a help when ordering ready mix. Pity it doesn't have the ratios and what additives are used.
  • This might also be of assistance..


  • I have been using this site, think it may be a yank one but still good. 

  • I'm sure AJ would laugh been called a yank! That site is gold for anything groundworks related.

    I'm sure Tony McCormack the owner of  Paving Expert would indeed laugh at being called a yank, I will tell him to have a look at this thread :)

    the paving expert website is indeed the best there is for information regarding all aspects of groundwork and paving as Tony McCormack is a very knowledgeable person

  • Believe A.J McCormack was his dad's name.

    While we're all kissing butt, Tony's book; 'Driveways, Paths and Patios' is a real gem, I refer to it often.

  • Yes, Paving Expert for me too !
