Concrete Pathways

Concrete pathways are a permanent, low maintenance, and valuable addition to your home that can improve its appearance, give a guided walking area, decrease erosion, and are a great way to keep things looking neat and tidy. Building one can be a labour-intensive and costly project, but we can make this a breeze and very affordable. There are many styles and designs to choose from.

We have a range of plain or coloured concrete, exposed aggregate or covercrete (stenciled) pathway options for you to choose from winding through your garden landscaping.

Perfect for no-slip, no-mess entry points to your home, or to simply lead you to useful areas such as the garden tap, shed, swimming pool or entertaining area, our wide range of concrete will match your garden concept or chosen exterior colour scheme.

Choose a natural concrete look, or match your concrete pathways
to your home colour scheme, complimenting it’s style and your surrounding landscaping. Concrete or exposed aggregate both provide excellent grip underfoot, which makes it perfect for flat or sloping pathways. From a textured pebbled finish to coloured oxides, we are the experts when it comes to choosing the best concrete product for your pathways!


Finishes Available for Pathways

Exposed Aggregate

Exposed Aggregate Concrete is a very popular and fashionable decorative finish, it is used at most display homes.

The finish is not smooth, rather the aggregate (stone/pebbles) are exposed which makes it rough and gravelly. However the aggregate is quite fine making it comfortable to walk on with bare feet.

Exposed Aggregate Concrete is a standard grey or off white cement mixture with a select type of customised small aggregate (stones/pebbles) and will sometimes have a colour oxide mixed through (mixed through at concrete plant). It is finished with a high pressure blast exposing the aggregate materials (stones/pebbles) on the surface.

All concrete paving must be treated with construction joins/cuts to minimise cracking. Spacing of these joins/cuts will be site and design specific.

Sealing of any paved area is highly recommended to minimise fading, staining and cracking.

Plain Concrete

You will be familiar with this finish from regular footpaths and kerbs.

Plain Concrete is a standard grey cement mixture. It is finished with a “Stipple” creating a slightly textured finish with no aggregate (stones) showing on the surface – A smooth or polished concrete finish is not suitable for paving outdoors as it would create a slippery hazardous surface.

This type of concrete is the cheapest option offered by Hume & Sons Concreting.

All concrete paving must be treated with construction joins/cuts to minimise cracking. Spacing of these joins/cuts will be site and design specific.

Covercrete (Covacrete)

Covercrete is a spray on product that is used to cover and refurbish old and existing concrete products. This is 2-3 mm thick and sets at approximately 72 MPA, about three times the strength of tradition concrete.

It is a resurfacing product only and will only be as good as the base below it. Patterns and header-courses can also be added if desired. A full range of colours are available. Rosettes and features are also available.

A minimum of two coats of UV sealant are mandatory to prevent colour deterioration.
