    0.5m3 isn't a lot, not worth readymix. Hire a cement mixer?

    Are we talking about concrete here? Cement is a grey powder.

    1/2 a cube of conc' requires a tonne of ballast and (just under) 7 x 25 kilo bags of cement.

    Personally I'd mix that small amount myself. Save risking being under or over. Minimum order maybe 1m3, you'd need to check.
