CONCRETE STONE

ONE OF THE MOST NOTABLE CHANGES IN HOW COLORADANS USE THEIR RESICENCE IS THE SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES. HARDSCAPING IS USED TO INTRODUCE LEVELS OF LIVING SPACE AND TO
INDICATE VISUALLY THE CONVERSATION AREAS THAT MAKE LIVING SPACE COME ALIVE.

THE NEWEST TREND IN CONCRETE IS CONCRETE SQUARES VS. LONG RUNS OF CONTINUOUS SIDEWARE. TWO THINGS RESULT: THE CONCRETE SHAPES SPEAK MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY. AND THE CHANCES OF CONCRETE BREAKS AND DETERIORATION ARE ENHANCED WHEN LONG RUNS OF CONTINUOUS CONCRETE ARE AVOIDED. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE OF CONCRETE IN THE MILE HIGH CITY WHERE TEMPERATURES RANGE FROM 0 DEGREES TO 100 OVER THE COURSE OF A YEAR.

WALKWAYS OF SQUARE OR RECTANGULAR CONCRETE ARE OFTEN DYED CHARCOAL OR BROWN TONES TO APPEAR EVEN MORE CURRENT. WHILE IT’S POSSIBLE TO PLANT GRASS OR GROUND COVER BETWEEN CONCRETE SLABS IN HUMID CLIMATES, IT’S BETTER TO CONSIDER INSTALLING FINE PEA GRAVEL BETWEEN THE CONCRETE SQUARES IN COLORADO’S CLIMATE. BY BETTER WE MEAN CONSERVING WATER AND AVOIDING DISAPPOINTMENT WHEN FINE
GRASSES IN NARROW SPACES HAVE TO STRUGGLE TO STAY ALIVE IN DROUGHT CONDITIONS AND DURING WEEKS OF INTENSE HEAT.

CONCRETE GARDEN WALLS, FIRE PIT SURROUNDS AND WALKWAYS CREATE CENTERS OF ACTIVITY: GARDEN WITHOUT BACKACHES WHEN TENDING RAISED GARDEN BEDS. ENJOY THREE QUARTERS OF THE YEAR IN FRONT OF YOUR FIRE PIT IN COLORADO’S 360 YEARS A DAY OF SUNSHINE. AND STROLL AROUND YOUR YARD COMFORTABLY WITHOUT MUDDYING UP YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU CAN STAY THE COURSE ON A WALKING PATH.

BESIDES BUILDING AESTHETICALLY PLEASING SIDEWALKS AND WALLS, 5280 HAS BEEN CALLED ON TO BUILD ORNAMENTAL CONCRETE BOLLARDS TO PROTECT AGAINST DRIVERS SHORT-CUTTING ACROSS THE CORNERS OF YOUR
PROPERTY.

WHEN YOU HIRE OUT CONCRETE WORK, KNOW ONE THING. NOT ALL CONCRETE WORK IS THE SAME. YOU NEED A PRO ON YOUR TEAM WHO UNDERSTANDS THE CONSTITUTION OF CONCRETE THAT IS MORE LIKELY TO LAST LONGER THAN OVERLY SANDY CONCRETE THAT TENDS TO FLAKE AND BREAK.
