Completed Patio

Here are some pictures of the concrete forming, pouring, etc. process.
This is the form for the patio.Hosing off the stamps for the concrete. The pump to pour the concrete. The cement truck.
Smoothing the concrete. Putting stress joints in the concrete to help prevent it from cracking anywhere but those places.
It's done!

It will be nice when we can finish the rest of the landscaping, so we have something nice to look at from the patio (instead of cinder block and piles of dirt). It will also be nice to have some furniture to sit on.

  2. liz-that looks great! and it *will* get step at a time...then you'll find another project you want to do :)
