If you wish to make the landscaping of your property stand out, one sure way to do so is to add some patterns to the concrete. It is actually pretty easy, so long as you are willing to put in the work.

Of course, the first thing you need to do is to make sure you have all the right tools (bull float, Fresno, concrete stamp mats, sealers, etc.) and have picked out the appropriate pattern design for the project. You can then start by pouring newly mixed concrete into the project area. If the project is of any significant size, make sure you have get some assistance as it can get hard to correct mistakes when you are dealing with concrete.'

After the concrete is poured, you will need to get the surface levelled with a bull float and a Fresno. You can then use concrete stamp mats to add patterns to the levelled and hardened concrete. Working with stamp mats is quite easy. All you need to do is to start at one end of the project and place the mats next to each other with their edges flush together and as you work your way towards the other side of your project area, use adequate force on the mats so that the patterns show up as intended. Lastly, seal the concrete surface using a block paving sealer.

If done right, having pattern-imprinted concrete structures will undoubtedly add beauty to your property.
