Patios and Walkways
An attractive walkway or terrace dramatically improves a home's curb appeal and livability. In many older homes, walkways and terraces need updating or replacement, and new homes are often sold without these enhancements. The projects illustrated in Patios and Walkways, from rustic stone paths to handsome new patios, can be completed within 1-3 days and are explained step-by-step, allowing even first-time masons to achieve professional results. The book helps homeowners select from the wide variety of outdoor materials and tools available at home stores and landscape centers.
