  • Usually the concrete is poured at a strength of 20 Mpa and a slump of 80.

  • Concrete is not less than 75mm thick.

  • F52 would be the minimum gauge steel reinforcing to use.

  • Usually the concrete is batched in lots of .2m so the measurement of your job is rounded up to the nearest multiple of .2m.

  • Remember, don't be tempted to pour more than you can handle.

  • There are two types of finishes recommended for a court yard, a float finish and a broom finish.

  • Expansion joints are placed in so that there is no larger mass of concrete than 12 - 14 m.

Colour , Stencil and Stamped Concrete

  • The concrete is poured normally and the colour is added on after.

  • There are several companies making the colour for concrete and a variety of jobs can be done with this colour, the easiest being floating the colour onto the surface.

  • Stencil and stamped take a bit more practice and need a bit more equipment.

  • Usually the place of purchase for the colour, which is sold in 20kg. bags, will have a variety of the stencils and stamped equipment as well.
