Materials 5 kilos of cement 20 kilos of sand 9 inch by 9 inch cavity block,
60 pounds of ready mix concrete 9 inch by 9 inch cinder block,
All are available from your local builders providers.
Mix enough cement to fill the Center of the cavity block. ( the mix is 1 part cement 4 parts sand )
Place the socket into the block and let it set.
Leave at least 2.5 cm to 5 cm (1 to 2 inches) of the socket above the block .
a hole which is about 30 cm (12 inches) square and about 40 cm (16
inches) deep. If you save the piece of lawn removed, you will be able to
replace it later.
some small stones in the bottom of the hole, just under the bottom end
of the socket and surround them with cement, this will allow rainwater
to drain away.
Be sure the fill is enough to bring the top of the socket just below
the level of the lawn, if the top of the socket is protruding it will
prevent you from running the lawnmower over this spot, so leave it just
below the level of the soil. Now fill the rest of
the hole with concrete, if you leave it below the level of the lawn you
will be able to replace the sod that you removed earlier.
