Quick Set Concrete Makes a Stone Look Walkway


After not such good luck with our poured, stamped, concrete patio chipping, we decided to update a rotting cedar walkway with quick set concrete for a stone look path. It is the perfect walkway between a deck and pool area and I love how the colors play off the surrounding landscape rock. For more photos and information stop in at the Bliss Ranch Blog.

      No, not all the way through, no place for weeds to grow up in the cracks! We have three walkways now done like this, they are all probably in the 10 foot range for length.

    Tried hard but could not find location of the instructions. Can you please send a link. I really want and need to do this beside the house where it gets muddy when it rains. Thank you.

    Yes, we have a creek rock walk from side of house to back door. As known creek rocks(shale) have bumps top/bottom good idea for smoother transition for older persons from tripping.
