What is Barrow Mix Concrete?

Barrow mix concrete is a type of concrete that is mixed directly on site using a small volumetric mixer, then poured into a wheelbarrow for delivery to exactly where it needs to be. That’s why it’s sometimes known as mix-on-site concrete.

The concrete is freshly mixed and transported to hard-to-reach locations, which means you don’t need to worry about manual mixing. It also eliminates the need for large mixing trucks trying to navigate tight spaces or get to those difficult areas.

This method is ideal for smaller projects, where only a small amount of concrete is required.

What is Barrow Mix Concrete Used For?

Barrow mix concrete is used for a wide range of projects, including:

• Small-scale construction jobs – like building walls
• Home improvements – like repairing fence posts
• DIY projects – like laying the base for a garden shed,

It is commonly used for tasks such as creating garden paths and patios, laying the foundation for small buildings, and repairing concrete surfaces. It’s very often used for pattern imprinted concrete drives.

One of the main benefits of barrow mix concrete is that it can be delivered in a wheelbarrow directly to the site where it is needed, so it’s an ideal choice for projects with limited access. Think back gardens, terrace patios and narrow alleyways and the like.

The small size of the mixer and wheelbarrow also means that it can easily navigate tight spaces and difficult terrain.
