The best concrete for some common DIY projects …

When considering the right mix of concrete for your DIY project, you will first need to identify the purpose for which the concrete is being used. Different applications require different strengths and compositions.

In order for your concrete to effectively support the structure it’s being used for and minimize cracks; it is essential to identify the right type of ready mixed concrete for the job. Ready-mix concrete plants can sell hundreds of different concrete mixes, so it is important to know which type of concrete you require.
