Our New Sidewalk

Our front walk had to be torn up back in October due to septic issues, and has been a dirt walk flanked by a rock pile ever since.  We finally hired Marrocco’s Stamped Concrete to do the job, and we are 2/3 of the way to our beautiful new walkway.  Here is the pile of rock that our walk has been for the past 4 months:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This crew was awesome…they have shown up early both days and worked their bootys off.  This process is definitley an art, and it was interesting to watch them work (hopefully they didn’t mind too much)…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The brown color towards the bottom of the pic is a couple shades lighter than it will be once dry.  Then they apply the dark grey color that will fall into the grout lines and accent the raised part:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the second color is down, they go back and press it into the concrete so it takes better…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So now we have to wait a week or so for it set, and then be sealed.  I can’t wait to see the finished product!  A huge thanks to Ben and his crew that have been a dream to work with…
