Building a Quickrete Walkway

More Information: http://www.quikrete.com/athome/walkmaker.asp

This video shows you step-by-step instructions for how to build a cobblestone patterned walkway using QUIKRETE® Walkmaker.

Building a path is a great do-it-yourself project. Once you’ve laid out the path, you mix the concrete, set and fill the form, then lift off the form to reveal the finished design. After a little troweling to smooth the surfaces, you’re ready to create the next section-using the same form. Rotate the walkmaker to vary the patern.Simply repeat the process until the path is complete. Each form creates a section that’s approximately 2-ft. sq. using one 80-lb. bag of premixed concrete. This project shows you all the basic steps for making any length of pathway, plus special techniques for making curves, adding a custom finish, or coloring the concrete to suit your personal design.
