Quick and Easy Concrete Steps
Concrete projects are super easy way to upscale your gardens for pennies. In this post I made concrete walking stones for the backyard of my former home. The concrete is under 5.00 bag and you can get several projects from one. Can't beat the price and it is super easy to mix. The worse part is lifting the darn bags.
Mixing is easy and new real formula. The more water you add, the smoother the concrete. The less water, the rougher the project will be. It is best to add water, stir good, and more water, stirs more. Until you get it the consistency you are looking for.
Simple garden shovel works well.
use your hose to add the water and mix, mix, mix.
Dig a hole the size of the step stone you would like. Or create a mold out of an old vase, a glass lamp shade. Create a spot in the grade the shape of your desired finisephed project, line with leaves or straw or something that will leave textured imprints. Have fun and get creative!
