Our Process For Creating Beautiful Concrete Paths

Concrete paths, also known as concrete walkways or sidewalks, are pedestrian pathways made from concrete. These paths are durable, low-maintenance, and can be customised in terms of shape, texture, and colour to suit the overall landscape design.

They are a popular choice for both residential and commercial properties due to their longevity and versatility.

As experts in landscaping Christchurch, we build concrete paths with great attention to detail.

  • First, the area where the path will be laid is excavated and levelled.
  • Metal forms are set up to outline the shape and dimensions of the path. These forms serve as moulds for the concrete.
  • Depending on the expected load and the path's location, steel reinforcements are added to provide extra strength and prevent cracking.
  • We prepare the concrete mixture and include additives to enhance concrete strength or alter the colour.
  • The mixed concrete is poured into the forms and spread evenly.
  • After the concrete is placed, we use various finishing techniques to create texture or patterns on concrete. Some homeowners opt for exposed aggregate finishes, where the top layer of the concrete is washed away to reveal the aggregate beneath.
  • We then let the concrete to cure because proper curing is essential for the concrete to gain strength. We cover the path with wet burlap, plastic sheeting, or apply curing compounds to keep the concrete moist during the initial curing period.
  • To enhance durability and protect the paths against stains, we apply a sealer over the cured concrete surface.

Crack-Resistant Concrete Pathway

While concrete is renowned for its durability, it is susceptible to cracks. It’s important to properly mix the concrete and cure the slab to minimise crack development. We are concreting experts who can install crack-free concrete pathways of long-lasting quality to prevent the need for premature costly repairs. We thoroughly mix the concrete and reinforce it during the curing process to build crack-resistant pathways.

Concrete Paver Pathway

Concrete pavers are pre-made individual pieces of concrete slabs in Christchurch that are ready for installation. We create these concrete slabs in various shapes, sizes, and colours to offer customisation options in design. Concrete pavers are easy to install and replace, offer exceptional value and versatility, and boast greater resistance to weather damage over their lifespan.

Poured Concrete Pathway

A poured concrete pathway is a substantial surface created by pouring a wet concrete mix that gradually cures over time and forms a solid concrete slab. This classic and timeless option can be stamped to add a unique designer touch before the curing process begins. Steps include levelling, edge forming, smoothing, and curing to install a flawless poured concrete pathway.

Modern Concrete Walkway

If you are creating primary entry paths then modern concrete walkways are the ideal choice. Each rectangular paving slab used in crafting modern concrete walkways is meticulously designed from adorned concrete, typically precast or cast in place. Expert concrete professionals can achieve a stunning finish through precise and purposeful placement, ensuring a striking result. They focus on creating an inviting and aesthetically pleasing finish.
