Doesn't your little LeBron James deserve his own basketball hoop out by the driveway or back patio? If you use Quikrete All-Purpose Gravel, the project takes just an afternoon—with zero mixing required. Start by digging a hole for the pole, and filling up to six inches of the hole with gravel. Set the pole into the hole, fill it with Quikrete Fast-Setting Concrete (as with the mailbox project), and saturate the concrete mix with water. In four hours, you'll be ready to string up the hoop and start your game.
