Depending on location, be aware of drainage. If next to house/structure, make sure there is a slight slant for rain to drain away from house.

      The price is about right though.

          How is he planning on the concrete? Bags in a wheel barrow, a mixer or having a truck bring it in? That is the piece that is time sensitive. If he is doing it himself, might be in your interest to lend a hand.

            Got 5 fruit trees in along with herb and tomatoes on the side

            A little bit of resort worth it, right? YOLO.
