Which Type of Concrete Mix Do I Need?

When it comes to concrete, unless you’re a professional it may all seem a bit confusing. You might not have even known just how many types of concrete mix there was available and trying to work out which type you need can seem like a nightmare! But don’t worry, here are some helpful hints to help you choose the best concrete for your application whether you’re laying a new driveway to a new stable floor:



If you’re doing a bit of DIY, perhaps you’re making a few improvements to your home, we are sure to have the perfect mix. If you’re planning on creating yourself a new driveways outside your home or perhaps you’re laying a new floor in the garage you should be looking at a P300 mix.


If you’re laying a base for your new shed or doing a bit of landscaping and are planning a new path, GEN 1 Mix with a minimum cement content of 220kg/pm3. This type of concrete can also be used for foundations.

Agricultural Uses:

C35 MIX is ideal for laying drives or roadways because it can withstand heavy vehicles. C35 and C40 MIX is also the best choice for use in farmyards, stables and barns as it is highly durable and animal urine can weaken some types of concrete over time.
