Summer is the perfect time to finally pursue your pending home improvement projects. And if you’re looking to spruce up your patio in preparation for your upcoming barbeque parties, updating your walkway is a good start. However, it’s no secret that installing pavers can be time-consuming, not to mention costly. Luckily, these concrete walkway molds make hardscaping much easier and cheaper.
Made of durable polyurethane plastic, these stencils allow you to achieve the same effect you’ll get when installing pavers individually. Instead of laying the pavers one by one, you can simply pour the concrete mix into the mold to build the pieces for your pathway. It’s that easy!
Indeed, you don’t need any special tools or even professional skills to get the job done. In fact, you can even turn it into a fun summer activity for the whole family.
These concrete walkway molds offer an easier and cheaper alternative to traditional hardscaping
The mold measures 16.9″ wide by 16.9″ long and about 1.5″ thick. According to the reviews, it should take you more or less 25–30 pounds of concrete to fill the mold. Other customers also recommend using a nonstick spray to prevent the concrete from sticking to the mold. Likewise, they suggest removing the mold after about 15–20 minutes for best results.
To improve efficiency, you may also opt to purchase two molds, so you can use them alternately. The mold is perfectly reusable. However, be sure to rinse it with water before the concrete dries up to maintain its form. If you don’t feel like replacing your existing walkway, you can use the mold as a stencil instead to paint over it.
One satisfied customer said:
“Great product for a handy person. Strong enough for a nice walkway. Did it mine, used it 25 times each as I bought two. Buying two allows you to do one after the other continuously, saving time.”
