Viewing Project in Decks & Patios > Patios
You can even put the bottom side, (vein side), of leaves into the top of the cement stone to give it a more country look. It can look like mother nature gave a helping hand. These can be leaves around your home, and just remove them when the stone is almost, or fully dry. This can be something the whole family can do to add to the memories. Okay, so I can be sentimental.
Did you start yours yet papa11? Once you start you will want to keep going. It is not as hard as you stated earlier. It is actually rewarding and will make you proud.
Ron didn't do all the work. If you note from the video, he just authorized, deputized and supervised. He the man! :)
Rome wasn't built in a day, so the path doesn't have to be built in a day. I have built both types of paths mention, and I have to say, the one shown in the video gives you more satisfaction and the house a more expensive look, and curb appeal.A good diet and light exercise is good for anyone that wants a healthy future. A small project like this fits part of that build, perfectly.
They were using a pick ax though, Calling first at no cost, instead of paying a fine and cost of repairs is always a good idea.Since their family built the house, it's most likely a given that they know where all the utilities went.So your both correct!
Use the sponge as shown or something more course such as using a broom or use anything to your heart's imagination. Make a single dummy brick and practice until you fine what you like and are ready for the real thing.
Most large or good hardware stores that sell plants, will carry them. Try the web and look for the best prices on stone pavers.
Thanks Ron, for I have this very project to do this summer. Part of my honey-do list.
Prices change year to year and from store to store, so giving prices, if they are more, may make you mad.
HI RON GREAT JOB . HOW CAN I OBTAIN A STENCIL OR A SHAPE FORMERWHATEVER YOU CALL IT TO POUR THE CONCRETE TO TO GET THE PATERN. PLEASE SEND ME INFORMATION ON I CAN LAY STONES TO MAKE MYOWN PAVEMENTTHANKS.
what a great idea, nice job, glenn confer
Great video ,how can you
make a textured existing walk way?
Whew, that's a lot of work! I think I would buy some patio stones instead of having to mess with mixing cement, though, I'd be worn out just from the digging. Can you put salt on it to melt the ice in the winter or is this warm climate project?
Did you try it yet? If so, how did it turn out?
They didn't dig that deep to call for Ms Dig , Bro.
I think I will pin it also!
should i level useing a soil compacting machine?
Hi, Ron! How are you? I love this tutorial! Pinning this!
Did this project several years ago with these products and it turned out great. I used lawn edging instead. One thing though it IS time consuming so allow plenty of time
Ron, I love your projects. They are always something for the average homeowner. We are builidng a new home with a building trades program from our local career and technincal school. Wish you were in our area to help us with a gravel patio. I hope to find one in your archived shows. Thank you for thinking of the average homeowner!
Hi Karine - thank you for letting us know. We'll look into it.
Hi Rita - no need to leave it in place. Just lift the form off of the wet concrete carefully, refine the shape of the stones as desired and move on to the next.
Ron,Great project but Public utilities were not called B-4 digging. This could be costly to a homeowner.
Oh, so that's what I did wrong! Wish I'd watched this before trying it at home.
It looks good, though I would've stepped down the retaining "wall" on the section near the driveway. It looks odd, taking away from the walkway.
looks doable, attractive; definitely something to keep on the project list.
love your show - how long do you have to leave the form in place after putting in the concrete before you need to remove it?
lot of work there Ron Looks Great!!!!
why are we never told the cost of these projects with the materials used?
This is a great project ... On the other hand I have a minor complaint.. It is impossible to process the weekly sweepstakes entry. It brings up the site but it does not give the photo or spaces where to enter. This is the only site which does not work ... I believe there is something wrong on your end ...
Looked real good... Thanks Ron!!!
I think we might try this
Loved it - perfect idea for an area where I needed a new walkway!
