I've got another project to do...

I've been putting it off for many years but this past winter took its toll on it.

We desperately need a new front walkway.

When we first moved here
(and I was much younger), I tackled laying field stone I found on our land.

It looked nice and I was happy with the outcome.

But time has dislodged, cracked and chipped much of the stone making it a bumpy and a "just waiting to snap an ankle" walkway.

After doing some research
(and needing to be revived with smelling salts after seeing the exorbitant cost of pavers), I decided we'll try Quikrete's "Walkmaker."

It has great reviews and there are lots of examples online.
If any of you out there in blogland has used this product, please chime in!
I'd love to read your opinions!

So the only thing left to do is wait until the weather cooperates... which may be never.
We went from 81 degrees (48 hours ago) to 21 degrees today.

Mother Nature is going through serious menopause.

Happy Thursday, all.

My husband's aunt has used this and it worked fine.

Hi Karin, love the walkway, it sure will look great, Blessings Francine.

If what you want is a concrete sidewalk, this fits the bill. If what you want is a walkway which looks like stones, then dig up and red-lay what you currently have. This product ALWAYS looks like concrete and it cracks just like concrete does. We had it at our place in CA and it just doesn't look good at all. Much easier to level out a meandering walk, pour Quikcrete in it, toss in shovels full of pebbles, smooth them down and move on.
Not a fan of stamped concrete at all.
