We are building a salon for the wife at the bottom of the garden. While we have good side access, there's no way of getting a cement wagon to reach the footings as it's a fair-sized garden. She wants a 10m x 5m building which I will have to mix the concrete by hand/mixer.
Given the volume required, is this doable? I used to be a groundworker many, MANY moons ago and never had to mix the stuff by hand. I'm just worried about early pours going off and new stuff not bonding as time ticks away.
I know some concrete companies have pipes on booms to pump the stuff to the desired location, but is there a thing where they can pump along the ground if the booms are too short for the job?
