didnt do the patio, but they all sank along the pool so I pulled them and re-laid. wish I had extra brick to re-do their janky cuts but over all it came out clean. on the hottest day of the year so far

that special ops for the concrete pad made a 2 day pour a 1 day pour. good thinking. Wide edger you are using for the sidewalks. any reason you like using the wide one over a standard 2-3 inch?

yea if I made it two days it would have been out of budget for the customer or no money in it for me. that micro lam is worth about 1/100th of its weight in gold lol.

I think thats a 3.5 or 4" I just like the way it looks better

I really like the swirl finish. Although that and the edge is probably of no interest to the customer. They probably wouldn't care if water sat on it from a low spot. I hate how uneducated customers are.... grr. very cool concrete work.

thanks, thats a hand finish with the magnesium float. dad taught me as a kid and that him on the left of the board. I like to do it on patios and walks, but people cant afford to have me do it on a driveway lol. tons of hard work. I think its a dead art after everyone started just brooming it. didnt think anyone had interest in concrete on here.
here is dad doing more special ops from the stoop to the back of the property on an extension ladder. don't say hes not creative haha.

funny you mention clueless customers... this lady asked if it was going to stay this white, I proudly say "yes, thats the quality of the concrete", then she asks how long until she can paint it!!! Dont get me wrong, shes happy with the job, but paint and concrete dont mix IMO.
