I need to put down a base for a greenhouse:
Base area is going to be 10ft 4" x 6ft 6" & 3" thick.
can anyone tell me how much Ballast & Cement i would need to buy to make a
mix of 5-1 to cover area.
IANA mental arithmetic type person. However.
I reckon that is about half a cubic metre, or about a ton. So buy a
dumpy bag of ballast and about 7 bags of cement. Should be near enough.
You might want someone to double-check as I was up late last night..
0.6 cubic metres. look at http://www.pavingexpert.com/home.htm and scroll
down (quite a way) to "Associated Topics" and pick 'Mortars & Concrete'.
There are a couple of calculators etc. on there that will help you determine
the quantities required.
