Patios, driveways and walkways can add form and function to your property. Coloring and stamping can add interest to these functional pieces. Stamped concrete pathways add texture to provide extra traction during wet or icy weather. Adding color can effectively split the property into designated areas (a play area, a garden, and a picnic area, for example) as well as add beauty to the space. Colors come in browns, reds, yellows, and black.
