1. Repair Cracked Concrete Steps
Give outdoor stairs a makeover and a safety upgrade for around $100.
Concrete steps crack and break up over time as weather extremes cause expansion and contraction.
Water can also seep in and freeze, deteriorating the edges.
Once the breakup starts, it spreads and gradually gets worse, making the steps unattractive and unsafe.
The best way to fix concrete steps is to demolish them and pour new ones.
Replacement is the only real option for steps that have sunk out of level or cracked all the way through.
But if the steps have only surface damage, you can save lots of cash and effort by resurfacing and recapping.
2. Improve A Path With Plants
Lay pavers and pots up with some plants and flowers and add them to a garden path to improve its appearance.
3. Lay A Stepping Stone Path
A practical and relatively inexpensive way of providing a walkway, individual stepping stones also have an enduring cottage charm.
To lay the path you will need a solid rubber mallet, a spade, a trowel and some sand to stop the stones sinking.
You may also need help to lift stones or pavers.
