How to Build a Walkway with Quikrete WalkMaker

By: Danny Lipford

A concrete walkway enhances any home’s backyard.

Your home’s details make all the difference. You could have a big backyard with plenty of space for entertaining, but where should your guests walk?

A host’s first responsibility is to be hospitable, and that begins with making their home comfortable and inviting.

So let’s start with a place where people can place their feet!

You may think that building a concrete walkway, especially one with an intricate design, is challenging and time-consuming.

Well, it would be without one handy tool: the Quikrete WalkMaker!

This line of reusable, 2-foot-by-2-foot plastic forms includes four attractive patterns: Country Stone, European Block, Running Bond Brick and Basket Weave. Installing a walkway couldn’t be easier thanks to these forms. Just purchase the pattern that fits your style, find a good spot for the walkway, prep the site, mix the concrete and fill in the forms.

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
•Quikrete Walkmaker Form
•80 pounds of Quikrete Crack Resistant Concrete mix or Quikrete Concrete Mix
•Gallon of Quikrete Acrylic Cure & Seal
•10 ounces of Quikrete Liquid Cement Color
•Plastic mixing tub or wheelbarrow
•Mixing hoe
•Measuring pail
•Margin trowel
•Safety glasses

Now, let’s get to work!
