Are you asking for the proportions of a cubic yard of concrete?

mixing concrete


There are zillions of concrete mixes for every occasion. How many of them would I mix by myself? None. I recommend getting bags of pre-mixed concrete from your local Hombre Depot. For more than that, call up a ready-mix supplier and have a truck bring it to you.

The long and the short of it, you'll need to provide much more information about what it is that you want us to answer.

Fully agree here. I bought a dozen bags of the pre-mix and it turned out fine. For one or five bags, you can mix it yourself in a bucket. More than that, I'd recommend renting a mixer. If it's a huge project like a whole patio or driveway, call a supplier and bring a truck.
