hi All,

novice DIYer. I had some ballast delivered yesterday to make a concrete footing for a small block wall for a raised bed (400mm high).

Im not sure if there too much sand and not enough aggregate in the mix. im not sure what the mix is meant to look like. appreciate if anyone can advise. picture on link below (copy and paste in browser-sorry not sure how to link it properly)

Hi zuberali,
It looks fine - a normal ballast mix.
