Walkways and Sidewalks
The design of a concrete walkway or sidewalk can greatly enhance a property, and we know how to build a quality product to last. Our professionals will collaborate with you to determine the best installation method and material for your outdoor space based on design, size and desired look. We have been installing concrete sidewalks and walkways for many years, and have the experience to get the job done right.
WHY USE CONCRETE FOR WALKWAYS?
Concrete can be poured in any shape or size to fit a specific design. Decorative concrete can also simulate the look of natural stone. Made with the same products as standard concrete, it is processed to create a more realistic pattern on the surface. As a result, you have many choices to select from with color and stamp patterns for a customized walkway look.
Adding stain or color to the concrete offers a lot of versatility and custom design to your outdoor areas. The process of installing decorative concrete surfaces or customized design work requires professionals with the skill and experience our team possess. With the use of stains and other shading techniques, we can color the concrete to adjust the tone of your walkway from light to dark tints of the color you choose. In our custom design, this allows us to match the style of the hardscape with the exterior of your property or landscape.
Not only do concrete walkways offer all the eye-catching beauty of high-quality natural materials, but they have the endurance and weather resistance of all concrete surfaces when installed properly. Our team of professional concrete installers will give you the best end result and satisfaction.
DESIGN OPTIONS OF WALKWAYS
Like driveways, concrete walkways or sidewalks can be shaped and decorated into various designs. The most common finish is a brushed finish, but that is not the only option. Stamping, staining or coloring are ways to get that high-end look at an economic cost. After the concrete is poured and stamped with a your chosen design, we add the color and shade you have selected.
Decomposed Granite ("DG") is also commonly used for longer pathways, garden trails, and as a xeriscape (drought resistant landscaping) ground cover, it can also be used to create smooth visual transitions between gardens and natural areas. One of the advantages of DG is that it breaks down, so any DG that migrates into lawn or planting beds does not cause problems the way gravel does. Lining a path or patio with a black metal strip (which will disappear if buried low enough) will help keep it in place. Stabilizers or resins are often used in the DG to make it more stable and able to withstand a lot of use or cleaning. You can even use a leaf blower without disturbing the material on the pathway.
