Why you might need concrete
Shed or greenhouse base: When building a shed or greenhouse in your garden, the first thing you need is a solid surface on which to erect it. Concrete flags can be used but are more prone to movement; which can be a problem with a glass greenhouse structure. Quality concrete will provide a solid and stable base for any garden structure that will last for years to come.
Driveways: Concrete is the perfect material for driveways, providing strength, durability and ease of maintenance. Tarmac or asphalt are often seen as cheaper alternatives. But given that they have less than half the average lifespan of concrete and require more regular maintenance, that often turns out to be a false economy. Concrete will not soften in hot weather and is significantly more resistant to petrol or chemical staining.
Garden paths: Many people choose to create garden paths using decorative flags. Though they may look attractive to begin with, they are easily cracked and broken by heavy objects or freezing weather. Add to this the problem of weeds and grass growing between them, and the appearance of flags can quickly deteriorate. Immune to such disadvantages, concrete is the ideal material for a garden path. Moreover, there are tools for creating decorative effects on concrete.
Why you need a concrete mix company
Anyone who’s ever ‘hand-mixed’ a quantity of cement or concrete will understand how physically demanding it is. They will also understand how little you can mix using only a shovel, and how many separate mixes will be needed to complete the project. The amount of concrete required for a short driveway (for example) is often far more than expected. Manual mixing can turn a small project into a massive undertaking. A company like Eastern Concrete can turn it back into a small project again.
