Easy do it yourself project on how to make a Quikcrete walkway or patio, it takes some time and effort but the end results look professional. The materials needed are minimal and allow for you to take your time and create a visually appealing outdoor space.

3.) Quikrete Liquid Cement Color (optional) 1/2 bottle per 1-80lb bag

4.)Wheelbarrow or rental of concrete mixer

5.) Trowel or heavy waterproof garden gloves


General Information

For the projects you do not need to lay down a base of sand or rock, however he surface must be level and compact. If you are going to do a large project, consider renting a concrete mixer. Concrete liquid stain can be added to the wet mix, if desired.


Mold 1

This mold is wonderful for making walks, patios, courtyards, and terraces. With no special skills required.

Method

1.) Mix up a bag of Quikcrete following the instructions on the bag. Add Quikcrete liquid color cement if desired.

2.) Fill the mold with concrete be sure to pack tightly into the corners of the mold. You can use waterproof garden gloves or a small trowel to do this.

3.) Smooth the surface, wait 5 minutes to set up, and remove mold.

4.) It take only minutes to complete a 2′ x 2′ section.

4 mold sections can be achieved from 3-80 lb. bags of concrete mix. $4.48 x 3 = $13.44


Mold 2

This mold makes excellent patios. The finished patio pictured is a 24×14 patio – estimated 65 bags, each 80-pound bag fills 1.2 molds (24 x 24 x 2 inches)

For a patio that will see high traffic and use, I suggest using Quikrite crack-resistant concrete.
