Finishing process, well, finishing process is about how you create better look, and I’m sure you need to know the process. Today I will show you how to finish concrete, concrete is a bulky material, and you need to make it flat with different method and tools, finish concrete can be done with two different ways. The first method is patterned concrete, let me show you how to create this one, I just done creating concrete path for my landscape, and I’m glad to share it with you. First you need to create the path panel, dig the soil for 5 to 10cm for better grab, and use wooden board as frame of the path panel. After that you can pour the concrete inside the path panel.
Once you pour the concrete you need to make it even or leveled, simply use the trowel to create perfect flat concrete path. Measure the concrete path and create line for perfect pattern result, use the edging tools to create mark. After that you can proceed to create pattern with broom, horizontal pattern can be created by broom, make sure it’s straight and even. Cover the concrete path with plastic to avoid any damage from outside.
In case you want to create soft and non patterned concrete surface, you can simply add additional cement mix, here, let me show you how to do it. First you can pour the concrete just like usual, flatten the concrete surface to get leveled concrete path, after the concrete dry, you need to create additional cement mix, use cement and mix it with water, make sure it has creamy texture. Apply the cement mix on the top of concrete path, use flat trowel to flatten and soften the cement surface. Be sure to add some water to reduce cracks, cover the concrete and let it dry.
