There is nothing more fun than watching a concrete mixer being unloaded!
The mixer is dropping its load into the hopper of a concrete pump, and the pipe runs down our driveway to these guys:
They were pouring the slab for a future herb bed. Love the use of a whipper-snipper motor on the concrete poker (for getting the air bubbles out). The wizard's staff in the background is for use with a laser leveller.
The bolt cutters are for cutting the reo, then there is a trowel machine and the last item is a bullfloat (I believe).
It looked like this when they had finished: the slabs had been laid for the garden bed (foreground), garage (at left) and a special coloured slab for our family room.
But over the weekend, it's been raining. I love the reflections here.
Here's our Honey Mustard slab. The aggregate is 10mm river stone -- quartz and some other stones in white, yellows and browns. You'll see it later!
We worked out a new method of ingress when we were told the concreters were coming.
It's important to be able to feed the chooks!
