One of the fastest ways to make the exterior of your home look more appealing to guests and passers-by is to create a concrete path. After all, there’s nothing that complements a landscape more than a brick home surrounded by concrete. Whether you’re looking to create a winding path with large stepping stones embedded around flowers or prefer to keep it clean and minimal with a continuous pathway, executing the perfect concrete foundation is essential.
Never underestimate the importance of a well-laid front path. From the general aesthetics through to providing a safe passage for your guests from the kerb to your front door, there really is no room for error when laying concrete.
Here’s step by step instructions on how to lay a concrete path.
Remember to always wear protective clothing, such as boots, long pants, and gloves when working with concrete, as exposure to skin can burn.
While it’s important to get the concrete mix ratio correct, it also comes down to the equipment you use to create those slabs. After all, it’s true what they say: a man is only as good as his tools. Now that you know the concreting steps to create the perfect foundation, it’s time to level up with the right equipment.
At MSB Form, we use the latest technology to ensure a concrete path that’s solid, long-lasting and low maintenance. As the alternative to timber formwork, we use steel, which is much more lightweight, won’t bend or warp while you’re pouring concrete, and it can be used a number of times.
