Patio time’s just around the corner!

It’s that time of year again — time to consider your yard and outdoor space and ways to make it especially enjoyable this summer.

If you’re considering a concrete patio project, now is the time to put your plan into action. Concrete is one of the most popular and attractive forms of decorative finishes. It creates a textured, natural surface adding dimension and depth.

Just like the interior floors in your home, exterior concrete can have as many different looks and finishes. Coloured and stamped concrete can add beauty and design. There are now so many different coloured finishes that you would need to use a colour chart to decide which would be appropriate for your project.

Get in touch at 403-547-5597. Our versatile solutions will meet the specific needs of any exterior concrete project. We will not only ensure it looks fantastic, but that it will last a lifetime.

Thinking of doing a DIY concrete patio pad this summer?

You may want to think twice! It’s actually much harder than it looks and if you mess it up you’re in for a full day of de-construction just to get back to square one.

For one thing, getting the concrete mix right is key. For example, too little water and the particles in the mix won’t stick together. But, adding too much water weakens your concrete. When that happens your aggregate or rock that is in the concrete begins to sink lower in the poured area. That leaves the lighter weight cement and sand at the top which can lead to very quick pitting and damage to your poured area.

Not only that, there are a great number of additives you can use to improve the strength of your concrete. Plasticizers and hardeners help it set quicker and fiberglass strands will add strength. It’s very important to get the ratio perfect.

The professionals at Hardscapes are expert at working with concrete. Their designs and colours make any backyard concrete pad outstanding. Stamping and polishing features combined with our artistry can make it look like beautiful custom stonework.

Stencilled Concrete can leave a look of an open area rug to enhance the look of your concrete surface. A great conversation starter : )
