I was wondering what type of concerte used...Basically the process to do it...I've done general searches on google but the project seems like all other in that everyone suggests a different way of doing it...

Typically 3500psi concrete is used at 4-6" depth with fiber mesh, rebar, or 6x6 wire mesh. Compacted earth beneath or 2" gravel. Control joints at 8-10' spacing both ways.
Rent form stakes and use 2x6 to form it up - rent an eye level for elevations.
Anything more specific?

I do a few myself, I add a 12" footer around the perimeter and expansion joints around 10-12 ft. If the grade is less than 12-1/4, I add a 1/2" -1" crown to the screed for drainage.
