reconcreteing stones around edge of water feature / stream

Postby scott milne » Tue May 01, 2007 8:59 am

I have a shallow man made stream in the garden which has stone sides. The concrete has deteriorated and the stones are now loose which means when I put on the water pumps the water is breaking out onto the path.
Could you recommend the correct concrete mix to repair this

10mm aggregate x 4 sharp sand x 2 and cement x 1 Scott. Then use a waterproof additive in the mix which you can buy from a builders merchants.
