"As much as we love to install stone or brick over poured concrete, sometimes budget doesn't allow it. We have the tools and experience necessary for a beautiful hand floated/broomed surface. We always excavate and install at least 6" of drainage gravel under all of our poured concrete sidewalks and patios. Concrete should never sit on bare soil. As a rule of thumb, we install concrete wire and when necessary, will install lengths of rebar and expansion joints."
