4 Amazing Uses for Decorative Concrete

Spring is here, and for most of us that means getting ready for a season of summer fun. If you’re a homeowner, one of the best ways to enjoy that season is to make sure you have a nice outdoor space. And decorative concrete can help make that space possible, without a big price tag. Here are four amazing ways that decorative concrete can transform your yard:

1. A prettier, more affordable patio – We’d all like to have a beautiful patio where we can enjoy cookouts, read a book in the shade or just invite a few friends over for drinks. But a patio presents a classic conundrum: do you make it out of brick or paver stones, which are expensive and high maintenance, or affordable cement or asphalt, which is drab to look at? Decorative concrete offers the perfect solution. Affordable, water resistant and easy to maintain, it’s the perfect building material—and it’s also gorgeous. Simply by choosing the right decorative finish or wash, you can have a concrete patio that is as artistic as it is solid. It will be the visually striking star attraction, not just the place you put the table and chairs.

2. Contoured walkways to hug the landscaping – If you garden or invest in your landscaping, then you know that a nice walkway makes a garden far more enjoyable. However, a typical paved pathway is a straight line—not ideal for meandering through trees or hugging the organic shape of bills, berms or water features. Of course, it’s possible to cut stones and pavers to make curved walkways, but it’s not easy. Concrete, on the other hand, can easily be poured in any course you choose, and with a decorative finish it will add a fairytale touch to your garden.

3. The outdoor kitchen of your dreams – Wouldn’t it be nice to have a proper outdoor kitchen for spring and summer get-togethers? An outdoor kitchen allows you to prepare food while socializing with guests, keeps the house tidy, and makes cleanup a snap. And they don’t have to be expensive. Decorative concrete can be used for the counters as well as the floor, sealed to be smooth and water-resistant, making them great work surfaces as well as pleasant to look at.

4. Creative steps and architectural flourishes – Remember, concrete can be made into virtually any shape, including graceful steps, front porches with low sides, or walls pierced with openings or lights. When using decorative concrete to design your outdoor space, your imagination really is the limit.
