Sidewalk Installation 101
First, you should contemplate where you would like to have your stone sidewalk put in. Do you want your walkway to be wide enough for one person to walk on it at a time or wide enough for two people to walk on it side-by-side?
We will work with all project team members to define the logistical requirements for the construction process, such as areas for deliveries, placement of barricades (if required) and hours of operation.

Brushed concrete generally requires less maintenance and work than the other designs, making it an economical concrete option. Because brushed concrete has a porous non-slip surface it is ideal for high traffic areas exposed to large amounts of foot traffic and water.
For our commercial projects, brushed concrete is a popular choice for sidewalks, parkade entrances and driveways due to its simple look and versatility. However, brushed concrete can be a unique artistic application when colored or brushed in unique patterns. View some of our brushed concrete designs.
Brushed concrete is also used in conjunction with stamped and exposed concrete in order to reduce the labor and cost but still retain an attractive look.
Exposed aggregate concrete can almost be compared to a piece of granite or marble transformed by polishing: A plain, unremarkable surface has been stripped away to reveal the exceptional beauty lying beneath. In the case of concrete, that beauty is in the form of decorative aggregate, either natural or manufactured.
There are many types of building stone available, so it’s important to choose one suitable for the walkway you want to create. You also want to choose stone that complements your yard and home. In this project, we’re using a rough-cut flagstone for a random, rustic look appropriate to its lawn and garden setting.
One trick to making a richly planted—or even shaggy—yard feel more manicured is to add a smartly defined piece of hardscaping. Patios and paths or an upgraded driveway not only define space but also provide the kind of contrast that makes a flower bed or lush lawn pop.
Concrete walkways or sidewalks are more than just a way to get wherever it is you’re going—they can provide much-needed curb appeal to homes and buildings, and they are fast becoming a point of artistic expression by way of a multitude of decorative concrete options.
While plain gray concrete is still the most often surface installed, as seen on most concrete sidewalks, there are numerous decorative concrete alternatives sure to dress it up, taking your sidewalk from boring to amazing.
