    i'm not afraid to work in the heat. The way I see it when you are sweating that means you are doing something.

    Here are some pics from a side walk we put in we did it as my grandmothers house so the whole family helped which made things alittle hard when some family members think they know what they are doing but dont and it starts an argument over stupid little things. But we got it done.

    The work you guys do looks great. My question is where did you find a tow-behind mixer? I've never seen one down here. Pretty neat concept when you only need a piece load.

    Theres a local outfit here that rents the mixer and loads it and mixes it for you at a very reasonable price...Its convient if you only need a yard or two..
    Looks good, but is your WWR laying ontop of your gravel? Maybe you pulled up in your concrete when you poured it?...
    Another question, why did you broom finish it before edging and cutting your control joints in?
    Also, did you use fiber board atleast on both ends connecting the walk to the pre-existing concrete?

    We got the mixer from our local rental yard. They have a mini bach plant in the yard and load them with up to 3 yards. We pulled the mesh up up as we pored the concrete and we put fiber bord at both ends and in the middle. We put the broom finish on after we edged and jointed it the first time and then re edged and jointed it again for the picture frame look.
