You know when things are getting better when you have build orders and little time to blog. 🙂 So I’m going to do a catch up post now. But if your looking for up to date posts you should look at my Instagram account. https://www.instagram.com/backyarddiybuilder/?hl=en Just recently I had an order to make a […]
Hello friends , and thanks for your support.
Spring is here and we are all into home projects, myself included. This post will be about the cement forms for your path ways.
I had ordered this last year from Home Hardware i believe. It came with two in the package.
1st it works as advertised. which is excellent.
But, there is more work involved than it appears.
1st Determine where your path is going to go. You can use the forms to help you there.
Count how many casts you are going to need because each form takes one full bag cement.
And bags roughly cost 10$/bag. And your going to have to let each set up a little before you can move on to the next.
So if your path needs 10 forms to complete then that will be at least $100 in cement and a lot of work for each.
You can just cast your forms and be done or you have many options of being a little more creative, like adding color to the cement.
I’ve seen samples of each cast being painted with florescent paint so it glows at night.
Just be prepared for a lot of hard mixing work if you are doing this manually, or save yourself some time and back pain by renting a cement mixer. A small price to pay if you are doing a long path and you’ll be smiling because you wont have a broken back by the end of the day 🙂
This is not a one day operation
