DIY tip of the week #2

When using concrete whether it’s for doing a path or simply setting posts be careful not to add too much water.
When the concrete is too wet you risk weakening the integrity of the concrete. It will also take a lot longer to dry meaning it will take longer to finish that path or fence.
If you mix the concrete yourself add the water in slowly as a little bit goes a long way.
To test whether or not to add more water, with a shovel or trowel make a groove in the concrete in your wheelbarrow. If it is rough and stoney add some water, however if you can’t make a groove add some more dry.
