A footpath can be constructed from rough, pre-cast concrete slabs but these generally are a little dull. A more interesting design can be crafted using molded concrete, with any number of patterns or shapes. Stepping stones are an interesting alternative to the traditional path. When made from uneven stone, a good and usable result can be hard to achieve. Using molded concrete stones instead provides a reliable result that can be stained to look like natural stone, whilst still allowing for an even and walkable finish.
Garage Floor Paints - Garage Floor paints very in quality and preparation methods of the concrete surface before application. As I stated in various other articles I am not a big fan of any of these products. I have yet to see even one of them that has lasted more than a year or two. Of course your slab has to be clean. It must be free of oil, grease, mud, sheetrock mud, paint, adhesives etc. The reason for the failures, for the most part, is the inadequate preparation of the concrete. For any paint or epoxy to achieve a proper bond to the concrete the pores in the concrete have to be \\"opened up\\". This can be achieved by the use of mechanical means, shot-blasting, scarifying and/or grinding. These methods are not really readily available to homeowners or DIYers.
Concrete gravel boards - If you choose to add this option, these sit beneath the fence panels and keep the garden fence panels from touching the ground and thus give the fence panel a longer life expectancy. The concrete gravel board is also useful if there is a change of ground level and if soil retention is required. These boards come in 2 sizes, 150mm and 300mm deep.
