    thats the stuff I was going to say Steve is that the one with the fibres mixed in ?

    no not as standard pete fibres are extra funily enough got a price off hansons today 97+ vat per M3 with fibers

    Don't use fibre reinforced. you don't need reinforcing in a dog base and the fibres just won't help. We have tried it in cattle sheds and it's no good.

    I was just going to throw some weld mesh off cuts I had its a 4metre by 3 metre base ?

    A tonne and a half of gravel and six bags of cement

    Norma if your thinking of readymix you need to ask for pav 2 used in farmyards etc

    mix by hand will be much cheaper and enlist a mate to help as above
    ensure a well compacted base
    let concrete cure and spend money saved on sealing coat of some description (like polycote) which will resist urine

    take the helper for a stalk after youll have loads of voulenteers
