We Have DIY Solutions For Your Concrete Needs!

Dixon Landscape now offers a Do It Yourself (DIY) solution for your concrete needs. We have a fleet of small "portable cement mixers" that tow behind a vehicle and hold 1-yard of concrete, which continues to mix during transit so that it is an effective pour when it arrives at the destination. 

It is a very inexpensive way to do a smaller job compared to buying concrete in a bigger truck. It is also more convenient and useful than mixing it yourself onsite - and a good deal less work as well.

We load all the ingredients onsite (concrete gravel, cement and water) into the "mixer trailer" while it is spinning here at Dixon Landscape...the mixer trailer is then ready to haul away to the job destination.
