<Sigh> didn't want to do this myself but quotes I've received for this job are way too expensive for me*, and even then it's hard to find anyone who can be bothered.
So, got to put down about 25m of 1m wide path around the house, and a 4x4 slab for a garden shed. Looking for some guidance ...
50mm depth on compacted base course and no mesh ... is that sufficient? Plan to saw-cut at 2m.
about 12m of path is on a reasonably steep slope up the side of the house - roughly 1 in 5. Is that acceptable to pour and broom finish?
Estimating materials... 75x25 boxing timber? Pegs at what spacing to avoid bowing...1m spacing? Or would it be better to get 75x50 boxing and require fewer pegs?
For the concrete... I'd prefer to do this in stages - two paths of 12.5m each then the pad, so the qtys are small... less than 1m3 at a time. Is it economic to get such qtys delivered?
I'd really like to find a concrete placer to help me with that part - anyone know of one available in Auckland City?
Thanks in advance guys.
* $13k, and no significant excavation required - just box it up, basecourse, place concrete and finish.
