In addition to your Ground Spike, you will need:
The first thing to do is to dig a hole. This needs to be the same depth as your Ground Spike and about a spade’s width wide.
Place the Ground Spike vertically into the hole with the spike pointing downwards.
Next, you need to fill the hole around the spike so that it is fixed firmly and permanently into position. To do this, pour in the Post Mix Concrete, whilst holding the spike in place with your other hand.
When the concrete has been added, use your spirit level to ensure that the Ground Spike is upright and vertical. This is really important.
When you’re satisfied that the spike is vertical, begin adding water and the Post Mix Concrete will start to set.
Post Mix Concrete sets very quickly, usually within just 5-10 minutes, so you need to keep checking that your Ground Spike is absolutely level during the drying time. Make adjustments if required.
When the concrete is dry, check that there are no raised edges.**
