Standard concrete mixing tools were used to mix concrete:
Hoe (to mix the concrete),
Flat shovel (to place concrete into form),
Wheelbarrow (to mix the concrete in, I have seen cheap kiddy pools used also),
Block Trowel (used only to cut into concrete bag) and
Water source.
Safety Equipment (Dust mask, safety goggles, gloves)

For modifying Rain Gutter:
Rotary tool (Not pictured here)
Safety equipment (Safety Glasses)

For preparing the work site:
