Springtime living moves to the outdoors

With the advent of Spring, more of your family’s time will be spent outdoors, playing, eating and hanging out with friends, so getting your yard ready is important. You’ll want attractive and comfortable outdoor space, but walkways, patios, pool decks and driveways can take a beating from years of fun and harsh weather. If your concrete surfaces are embarrassing, they can easily be transformed to look like authentic Flagstone, Ashlar Slate, Cobblestone, brick, tile, and more, with our unique micro-topping concrete overlays and proprietary processes for creating life-like faux stone finishes and designs. In addition to stamped and hand-crafted decorative concrete, stained concrete provides a durable finish of lustrous color and shine, mimicking anything from polished marble to natural stone. Seat walls provide convenient seating around the pool as well as creating raised flower beds for a gardener’s delight. A continuous sealed surface is low maintenance since it resists spills, stains and moisture. A quick hosing off will keep the whole yard looking like new, so bring on that impromptu party or get-together!

Welcoming walkways to enhance garden areas

Whether you have one walkway up to your front door, or meandering walkways in a big backyard, upgrading your walkways with decorative concrete will immediately give your whole property a facelift. No more pitted, plain gray concrete that detracts from the beauty of your home. Damaged walkways can be restored with a concrete micro-topping to hide wear and tear and then stained or finished with a stamped or hand-crafted design.

Add curb appeal and enhance your garden areas by upgrading your sidewalks and walkways with decorative concrete overlays. You’ll love the ease of matching your home’s colors and style with hand-cut and custom-colored designs such as this gray Flagstone. This walkway’s “stones” will never lift or shift, creating tripping hazards, and you’ll never have to dig out grass and weeds from the grout lines. A decorative concrete walkway will keep its integrity as a beautiful frame for your flowers, resisting unsightly mold, moss or fungus growth.

A stamped tile pattern with a contrasting border creates an elegant entrance to your home. A colorful garden appears more “dressed up” with a formal walkway. The decorative concrete finish will not chip, fade or peel even in harsh weather, so when winter takes the gardens back, your yard will still look defined and polished while waiting for the flowers to return. Decorative concrete provides a walkway for all seasons, year after year.

Vertical resurfacing for flower beds and seat walls

One common element of outdoor living is the need for seating. Patio tables and chairs are the usual fare but sometimes, for a crowd, it’s not enough. Custom seat walls can provide additional seating when needed and defining architecture the rest of the time. Using hand-crafted designs, you can install and create beautiful seating or garden areas with a seat wall system.

A raised flower garden is easy to tend, you can sit right on the wall to pull weeds, plant flowers or till the soil. A realistic stone façade can match other hardscapes in your yard, including the house’s stone siding. A flat capstone is seating enough for a very large party so there’s no need to play musical chairs when all the neighbors come by for a barbeque. The seat walls can have a sealed, continuous surface so you won’t ever see stones dislodging and falling out of the design. Decorative concrete garden walls will remain exactly as they are on the day of installation.
