In addition to staining, concrete patios can be designed to look like landscaping with stone, brick, slate, or tile through stamping or engraving. It is beneficial to stamp or engrave concrete to look like these other materials because concrete is cheaper than brick or stone. They are less expensive and concrete patio flooring is also easier to build, making them budget and installation friendly. Concrete patios make the perfect floor surface for outdoor kitchens and living rooms in that they can accommodate outdoor fireplaces and water features without fear of destruction. The concrete can be stained a variety of colors to turn the dull grey into a beautiful color of your desire. Because they are easy to stain, they can be color coordinated with your home’s exterior and interior to blend the indoor and outdoor living areas.

Make sure that you dig deep enough to allow room for both concrete and gravel. You must then build a perimeter of wood, plastic, or rubber along the outside of your patio hole in order to contain the concrete patio designs and gravel while maintaining the shape of your desired patio. Once this task is complete, you are ready to pour in the gravel. You should layer the gravel about 2 inches deep on the bottom to provide a porous layer for water collection underneath your patio, preventing cracks in extreme temperatures and incorporating a drainage system.

After constructing your rebar level on top of the gravel by placing steel bars in a grid pattern and securing them with wire, you are ready to pour the concrete. You should mix the concrete according to the instructions provided with the mix. Once mixed, begin to pour the concrete into your patio hole beginning at the edge. As you pour, make sure to smooth the concrete using trowels and concrete floats. Once the concrete is poured you can add any additional outdoor patio designs with stamps, stencils, and color stains. Cover the area with plastic for a week allowing it to dry and settle. Save left over materials to later design a retaining wall blocks that interlock to enhance your patio design plans.For additional information and help with building your concrete patio, take a trip to your local home improvement store.
