Concrete Cobblestone Path

Outdoor decor 5 days ago
We wanted to find something unique to use for our pathway and patio. We couldn't find anything we really liked. When I came across this concrete form from Lowes I was so excited. Not only does it look great but it was very cost effective.

To learn how we did it visit my blog at http://www.tancamjenksfam.blogspot.com/2011/...

    Amy, You seem to be pretty knowledgeable. Any ideas on how to get Moss to grow in the cracks of the cobblestone? I think it would just set it off that much more. I have the pattern (form) and hope to use it soon. Baking soda helps the concrete to dry

    I don't know much about moss but want to do the same. Check out this website. The person with the nickname Mosswich gives good info on how to grow moss: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/cryp...

    Nice job! I'm doing this in a small space between our unattached (2nd garage) garage and house. Making a pergola from house to garage growing my grapevines over the top and putting a hammock, draping lights, a waterfall and sheer curtains. My husband

    My neighbor uses roofing shingles under all of his stone work. They stay flat without shifting and no weeds. The bricks and stones he put down 10 years ago look as good as the ones he did this year.

    I've always wondered how to do this. So that's how! Cobblestone paths are so elegant.

    We did this probably 20 years ago at the school where I taught... they have aged beautifully, looking even nicer as they have gotten older!
