Spring is finally here and all of the nurseries and home improvement stores are practically bursting with plants, potters, lawn furniture and paving stones. If you have big plans for improving your backyard this year, it is time to jump on them. Whether your to do list includes landscaping around the steps to your existing deck or adding a brand new patio, nature is telling you to get it done sooner than later so you have time to enjoy the fruits of those labors. When considering your options for new hardscaping, such as a new patio, pathway stones, or retaining walls, you should investigate stamped concrete as an efficient and beautiful addition to your home. Let’s learn more.
Concrete Is Tried And True
Concrete is not a new option for home hardscaping. Concrete driveways, paths, and patios have been a staple of backyard renovations for decades. And when it comes to durability and performance, concrete more than gets the job done. If your concrete driveway can withstand the traffic of your vehicles, a concrete patio can withstand your furniture and family, after all. Stamped concrete is no difference. The act of stamping the texture or pattern into the surface does nothing to the fundamental durability and strength of the concrete slab.
Concrete Is Low Maintenance
Unlike some other deck and patio options, concrete doesn’t require a huge amount of maintenance. Sweeping it free of debris, occasionally washing it if it gets really dirty, and applying a sealer every few years should be all you need to keep it beautiful and performing well for decades.
Stamped Concrete Is Quick And Beautiful
A concrete patio is often much faster to install than most other patio options, especially stone or paver patios. If you are anxious to use your new patio as soon as possible, concrete is a good option. Often it is a much more cost-effective option as well. But don’t settle for a boring flat concrete slab – make it beautiful as well by opting for stamped concrete. You get a beautiful, textured patio (it often could even mimic the look of stone or brick), without the added time and cost to install it.
Stamped Concrete Allows For Lots Of Variation
When it comes to tamped concrete, the possible variations are nearly endless. There are literally dozens of different stamps and textures available, plus you can add color to the concrete so that the end result is a completely unique and beautiful patio.
