Lime concrete is generally used for foundations in dry-subgrade while.

For moist subgrade with high sub-soil water (usually 15 in Or less below the foundation level), cement concrete should always be used. In such situations the foundation concrete should not be leaner than 1:4:8 (1 cement 4 sand : 8 stone ballast).

The masonry work over the foundation lime concrete should be started only after 7 days.

In case of cement concrete, however, the masonry work over the foundation concrete may be started after 48 hours of its laying.
