You’ll first need to evaluate the space you have to work with and plan where you want your path to go. Measure the length and width of the path, then use our chart to figure out how much concrete mix you’ll need.
Adding a small patio, garden path, or other decorative walkway is a great way to transform your outdoor space and give it a unique look and feel. Sure, we'd all like to make our backyard look even better, but the idea of creating it is way too intimidating for the average homeowner...right? Not so with the Quikrete Walkmaker. The Walkmaker allows you to create your own path or patio in your backyard using a plastic template that you can layout, pour concrete into, remove, and repeat. With different templates available, you can create the exact look you want quickly and easily! Check out the steps and get started!
Once you’ve finished the path, it needs to be dampcured for 5-7 days. This means misting it with water regularly over the next week to ensure moisture retention in the concrete
You can also create mortar joints to give you pathway a rock-solid finish. Once you have cured the path, sprinkle Quikrete PowerLoc jointing sand on the path and brush it into the gaps. Then lightly mist with water to harden the polymers in the jointing sand and let dry for a solid path and a high-quality, finished look.
