Concrete base for summerhouse

Postby Jak68 » Tue Feb 09, 2021 2:14 pm

Hi, just wondering if anyone could help.

I am looking to start prepping for a base for a summerhouse and wanted to see how much material I would need. If I went down the concrete base route how many 20kg bags of concrete would it take for 1 cubic metre if I was using a 4 or 5 to 1 ratio of ballast? Thanks

Hi jak68
You will need between 40 and 50 bags of ballast.
