    This was my first time at stamped concrete. I think it came out good. I had a mason friend help me with it. This is a new home on a lake. The walk way is the first part of the landscape install. I have to meet with her this Friday to see how much more she wants done this year. Seems she spent all her $ on the house and she might want to wait till next year to do any unnecesary landscaping. I will post more picks of any other jobs she wants. Tell me what you think. This is the layout.

    Looks good. I have never done stamped before. I like my traditional pavers. :cool:

    Thanks Paponte. She didn't want pavers because she thought there would be grass in the cracks after a couple of years. I forgot to mention that this is a vacation home. She does not want a single blade of grass installed because she wants a maintenance free landscape. Looks like a lot of stone and mulch to go in.

    The stamp is concrete.


    It is let to set a little and the stamp is pressed into the soft concrete.

    The coloring is done with powder dyes floated in with the finish troweling.
