    Why waste time jackhammering it when a liberal amount of explosives will get the job done faster??????????????

    For most of us, a jackhammer is easier to get a hold of, not to mention easier to explain to Johnny Law when he rolls through the 'hood.

    BUT, I agree, the explosives would be WAY more fun! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Personally I like k-crete /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It looks good and is easy to dig out again later.


    Hmmm, maybe some good 4000psi stuff smoothed out like a warehouse floor . . .smoooooth as glass.
    That's great for racing RC cars on /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Imagine a crap load of sand no other aggregate and a couple bags of cement per yard.

    Basically it looks like gray sand coming out of the truck, sets up, but can be dug into easily

    oooh ic. I'm guessing because the sand is so small, it can't bond with the concrete stuff as well as gravel so its more smooth and easier to dig.

    we use it to back fill areas where the ground is too soft (poor drainage) before putting the footers in.

    If you plan to have it delivered by truck, be prepared to pay a nice chunk of change. It's gone way up in price. Sometimes you can't even get it because the places that supply are running short.
