Start by digging up the soil where you want to your slab. You can measure and mark the area with Inverted Marking Spray if you prefer.
Build a simple rectangle with 2x4s and place it where you want your slab. Ensure it is level.
Now you want to add your sand and tamp it down so it is nice and level.
Mix your first bag of concrete thoroughly, according to the directions on your bag. Pour into your 2×4 frame/concrete form.
Continue to mix concrete in your mixing pan. Pour it into the frame, one bag at a time. Once you’re close to the top, stop.
