    it's just a side patio 9x25. SHouldn't take
    more than 2.75 cubic yards of concrete.
    The forms are practically made since there's
    my concrete exterior house wall to the left,
    a wooden fence to the right, landscaped wood at
    the end of the patio, and where I'm standing in the pic
    there's also the wooden fence with a door. I'll call
    locally, but wanted a general idea of cost, time, and ease of
    job from you all 1st. Also, most likely the truck could get it's
    pour extension arm(if thats what its called) to reach this area.
    thanks!

    Only problem I see is that the "forms" don't allow for easy access outside the pour, which makes finishing problematic. Call a couple of contractors and see how their bids compare.

    Gotta agree with Mikey, finishing will be the biggy. I'm sure professional concrete finishers can tell you better what you're looking at, and the cost will depend on local labor costs.

    concrete

    The number of cubic yards is immaterial except for what the concrete would cost. You have to contact local concrete contractors for a price, because they usually price by the square foot of surface, not the CY of concrete. Their prices will vary greatly depending on how busy they are, how small they consider your project, and what they pay their employees.
