Concrete Slabs Around the Farmstead
Concrete Slabs Around the Farmstead (versus dirt or gravel) reduce the trip hazards of mud and ruts, especially for one with a mobility impairment. Having a smooth, solid surface, they help provide stable footing, ensure convenient wheelchair access, and require little, if any, additional maintenance over the years. A few examples of where (and why) concrete slabs would be advantageous- livestock working and sorting areas (firm footing for both human and animal); beekeeping areas where hives have to be lifted and moved (smooth surface needed); vegetable or fruit enterprise wash-and-pack areas (eliminates tripping hazards); and equipment maintenance areas (allows a creeper to be used).
