Stamped Concrete Patios + Upcoming Weekend Project

Oh, I’m so happy to say that the patios are poured and we’re ready to move forward with our next outdoor project: building an outdoor firepit, retaining wall as a seating area, then filling it the gaps with mulch, rocks and some greenery.

But here’s what it looks like so far…

And the large retaining wall rocks around the edge were free; just leftovers from our neighborhood when they developed the lots. Love scoring free stuff that kept the costs down.

And sod… And stairs.. And plantings… It never ends.

 So what are your weekend plans?

    How did you do the stamped patio in terms of colouring? We bought a home that had this done, and now the treatment is wearing off and I would like to reapply to bring them back to looking like slate and your project is the first I’ve seen that looks like what I have. Thanks
