Celebrate Spring with Fantastic Gardens and Decorative Concrete Walkways
In many areas of the country, Spring is a true awakening. Denuded trees and flowers buried under frost and snow spring to life, displaying myriad shades of new green growth. The landscape changes daily as the earth wakes up, stretching and yawning, eager to get back to its job of growing things. People, too, emerge from the cold of winter energized by the onset of Spring, but with a range of different perspectives and anticipations.

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 by the artisans at Concrete Craft 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.
This patio, pool deck, and walkways have been stained for a consistent look throughout the yard, tying all activity areas together. Seat walls provide convenient seating around the pool as well as creating raised flower beds for a gardener’s delight. The 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 this home. The colorful gardens appear more “dressed up” with this formal walkway. The decorative concrete finish will not chip, fade or peel even in harsh weather, so when winter takes the gardens back, this 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 fares but sometimes, for a crowd, it’s not enough. Custom seat walls from Concrete Craft can provide additional seating when needed and defining architecture the rest of the time. Using hand-crafted designs, we can install and create beautiful seating or garden areas with our seat wall system.
This raised flower garden is easy to tend, you can sit right on the wall to pull weeds, plant flowers, or till the soil. The realistic stone façade matches the other hardscapes in the yard, including the house’s stone siding. The 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. These seat walls 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.
