Silage wall concrete

    What is the time required to cure the concrete of a 2.5m-3m silage wall? As in when is it considered fit for purpose. Hoping to fit pit in it this year if I can. TIA

    Grant spec requires 28 days. I’d be trying to give it at least that if at all possible, especially for walls.

    Concrete should be kept wet for the first week or so after pouring for proper curing. If you can wet it with a hose 2 or 3 times a day for the first week it’s the proper way to cure it.
