    Value For Money

    "Noting previous comments, bags were stamped as manufactured in August 2014. Followed instructions, 50mm thick and 3L water and the result is indeed a top layer of red sand and small ballast. Seriously hard tamping did bring some of the cement back to the surface but unevenly and couldn?t get a satisfactory surface. That was OK for the base layer where the finish didn?t matter and that was easy with little handling. For the final finishing layer would recommend that it is mixed in the old fashioned way by hand (Assumed if using this product, you don?t have a mixer). Being already mixed it?s not the hard work that it is from basics. It needed a little bit more than the 3L maximum recommended to give a firm but workable mix. The only issue with this product is that it is not quite as simple as spreading it out and watering it if you are looking for a ?Normal? smooth finish but that can be achieved by hand mixing. It didn?t dry to a normal concrete light grey, more of a dark greyish red, don?t have a problem with that with my application. Other than that, it?s fine for the infill bits that are too small to warrant a ready mix delivery."

    Pros:  delivery men excellent
    Cons:  end result

    "preparation of ground laid as instructed, worked to the letter of instructions including using a three litre water fine spray, and measuring square yardage to make sure I did not over wet. The result was a sandy thin layer of concrete with a top layer of sand. Even wetting it again after 30 minutes still left the same result. When clearing up empty bags of concrete I found they had already exceded the shelf life date. "produced October 2012, use within 9 months of date" it is now September 2013. So maybe here lays the fault, I don't know. I placed it over an old patio base ready to place a new shed. Ohh the weather that day fo the area was perfect for the job"

    Value For Money

    Pros:  good value for money, nice fine smooth texture, set in about 12 hours of sun
    Cons:  weak paper bags, bag not waterproof

    "The particular Three bags I bought at my local wickes was branded Hanson in a blue bag. It has a nice fine texture with only the odd small stones in. It looks sandy in colour when first laid but when dry turns grey. I chose this for its value for money at 25kg for reasonable price and was a lot finer quality than the lowest price pre mix cement was which is more stones than concrete. Warning! Be very careful with the bags as they are only made of paper and can tear very easily need to be kept dry too! When I transported one under my motorbike seat it torn itself open very very easily. There wasnt even anything sharp there and it just ripped in half when I placed it gently under the seat. Yes I had a nasty job clearing it out when I got back.."

    Pros:  dries quickly used within design parameters
    Cons:  can dry a dark red colour

    "Noted earlier review regarding using this product for fence posts, but when I checked with Wickes and then their supplier, it turns out this product is not meant to be laid any thicker than 50mm - ideal for laying/repairing pathways, etc, but not for use in deep footings such as fence posts. I used this product to form a gulley around a surface drain and to form a shallow base over compacted hardcore to support a water feature and was happy with the results."
