    "I do concrete stamping. I think its great but must be done properly, its concrete with a colour of your choice and a pattern in the concrete should be 4inch think with a very good base"

    "You pour concrete and then push in a flexible template that leaves a cobbled effect pattern to the finished and hardened concrete,
    benefits: cheaper,
    disadvantages: in shaded areas and after time can gather moss or become slippery"
