Questions Answered on This Week’s Show

Faith in Missouri Asked: I’d like to put a walkway in my yard from the back porch to our garden. I’m looking for something more attractive than a concrete sidewalk, but we’re on a fixed budget. Do you have any suggestions?

Danny’s Answer: Pavers would look really nice, but there’s a lot of prep work involved, and the better looking pavers can pinch your pocketbook. I would go with concrete, but use the WalkMaker from QUIKRETE. This is a form that you use to create a very unique and visually-appealing walkway from concrete. The WalkMaker is a great do-it-yourself project, so you can save a lot of money on labor.
