The best time to pour concrete is typically in the spring or fall, but can be poured in the summer as well. Here are some tips for pouring concrete in the summer:

- Spray the concrete with water: Spraying the concrete slabs with water helps to keep the concrete cool and moisten them.
- Block the sun from the concrete: Direct sunlight on wet concrete speeds up the evaporation process. You can use sun shades to help block the sun from the concrete.
