Bricklike Walkways - On the House

Bricklike Walkways

When it comes to building stuff, many people feel like dummies. But we’ve got a special Carey Brothers’ approach to making a path or walkway appear like magic wherever you?d like one. It’s so easy even the Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow and Tin Man can handle it.

If you want to make a path that looks like bricks, but isn’t, here’s all you need to do: pick up some pre-packaged concrete mix and one of the many easy-to-use concrete molds on the market today. Styles range from stepping stones to the look of individual bricks. When using these molds, each 2-foot square section uses one 80-pound bag of concrete mix. With a square shovel scoop out a channel for the mold and your concrete. With the mold in place, fill cavities with concrete mix. Remove the mold while the mix is still wet, and repeat the process over and over until you’ve gotten from where you started to where you want to go. For about half the cost of brick, you’ll have created your own path to see the wonderful Wizard.
