Building a Pathway with QUIKRETE Walkmaker®

Building a pathway is easy with the QUIKRETE Walkmaker. The reusable plastic forms are available in four attractive patterns.

Project Instructions

When working with cement-based products, always wear eye protection and waterproof gloves.

Step 1
Level the ground removing sod or soil.

Step 2
Mix QUIKRETE Crack Resistant Concrete. If using liquid cement color, add to the mixing water.

TIP: each 2’x2’ Walkmaker form is designed for use with one 80-pound bag of QUIKRETE concrete Mix.

Step 3
Place the Walkmaker form on the ground and begin to fill the cavities with concrete.

Step 4
Using a margin trowel, press the concrete mix into the form working from the corners to consolidate the concrete and eliminate any voids.

Step 5
Smooth the surface and immediately remove the form (there is no need to wait for the concrete to set).

Step 6
Rotate the form a quarter of a turn to vary the pattern for a random look. 

Step 7
Use a trowel to smooth any rough edges before the concrete becomes “thumbprint” hard.

Step 8
Begin curing the concrete immediately after the sheen has left the surface of the concrete. 

Step 9
Freshly placed concrete should be water cured for a minimum of 3 to 5 days with a fine water mist.

TIP: water curing can be eliminated by applying QUIKRETE Acrylic Concrete Cure & Seal immediately after finishing the concrete. Acrylic Cure & Seal can be applied with a roller, garden sprayer or a brush.
