Pour a Concrete Slab
Before the concrete is delivered to your home, carefully read this step-by-step guide for successful results.
Level with a bull float.
Leveling a large area is difficult without a bull float; it's a tool well worth renting. Gently set the bull float in the concrete near you and push it forward with the front edge slightly raised. Pull it back over the same area with a series of tugs that produce slight ripples in concrete -- this motion will push stones down and fill in small holes.
After each back-and-forth stroke, pick the float up and level the adjacent section with the same motions. Overlap the strokes slightly to make sure you float the entire surface.
