Helpful Homemaking tip...:
Before choosing pavement for your new driveway, cobblestone for your new walkway, or wood for your new patio, why not check out what current concrete pavers in your area have available? Concrete has made great strides in recent times. Concrete stamping, precast interlocking pavers, and various new coatings have given concrete paving not only better integrity, but also more visually appealing finishes and attractive prices. You can get mortarless interlocking pavers in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. These machine made units are quite sturdy and work quite well for patios, walkways, and even driveways. They are simply installed in a shallow bed of sand which is also vibrated between the paving joints to form a seal.
