Concrete is a material that is most often used in the construction of buildings and road surfaces, but it can be used in a number of interesting ways. The amount of concrete that you need will depend on the project you have in mind, and if you need large quantities, you can speak with a Concrete Cheltenham company like Monster Mix to have it delivered directly to your home.
Planters – if you are looking for some planters in your garden, you could use concrete to create these. You would need to have some kind of mould or frame to hold the concrete until it dried.
Steps – lawn areas can be livened up by having some stepping stones placed strategically across them. Concrete is a great way to create your own stepping stones. Again you will need to have some kind of frame to create these. There are instances where people have poured concrete into a plastic bag, tied the ends and then flattened the concrete until it dries.
Artwork – again, you can use concrete to create artwork. Silicone moulds can be used for this, or you can create your own moulds. The kind of materials that you need to do this will depend very much on the final art piece that you are looking for. Bird tables, for example, can look very nice when they are made from concrete that is used to then hold tiles or pebbles on the outside of the frame.
