I'm about to put 5 or 6 metal fence stakes in my garden. I have some quick
set concrete which I'm told I just need to pour some of the mix in the dug
hole and then add water and it will set in about 10 minutes. A couple of
things are bugging me though. Firstly, when I add the water will it just
disappear into the soil? Secondly, will the concrete actually adhere to the
soil so the stake will be solid?
I\'d rather have a bottle in front of me then a frontal lobotomy.
Everything will be fine,
poor a bit of water in the hole
half fill with redimix
tap down with a stick of wood to remove air
add more water
fill to top with redimix
tap down again
thirded, ditto for me, had concerns (used 2 bags for the hell of it), still
upright and standing.
If you're going to make new holes it might be worth hiring an auger hole
makes from jewsons, looks like a corkscrew and makes nice round, neat holes.
