It's a good thing that I enjoy working on home improvement stuff, because the updates at Mom and Pop's place never seems to end. Recently, I took on giving their driveway a makeover using this innovative new stamped concrete technique. The system is brand new on the market and can be done by a total novice. The basic gist of the system is that instead of pouring concrete on the driveway or patio or walkway, you're laying 1/4" concrete tiles. If you've ever laid tiles, you know how easy it is. And if you haven't laid tiles, then I'm telling you how easy it is. You mix up your mortar, smear on the back of your tile, set in place, and repeat.
But the best part of this system isn't how easy it is, it's how cost efficient it is. Traditionally poured stamped concrete will run ya about $10/square foot. This tile system will only run you about $3/square foot. That's a huge savings!

    1). I tried to follow your links. They wouldn’t open. Was very interested in finding out more.

    2). It’s beautiful. Just stunning. What shape does the ground beneath it need to be? I have a broken sidewalk. Does the cement need to be in good shape ? Can it be done on grass? On gravel?
