Summertime get-togethers always mean outdoor fun. The weather’s inviting and combining indoor and outdoor gives plenty of space for guests to spread out and be comfortable. If you’re hosting a Fourth of July party, you’ll want an easy flow from indoors to outside so that the fun never stops. 

If the concrete surfaces in your yard are unexciting and add nothing to the overall design, it may be time for a change. Imagine your patios, pool decks and walkways in flagstone. Or Old English cobblestone. You would have a completely different yard! If your next thought is the damage to your bank account, Concrete Craft® can help with that. With stamped and resurfaced decorative concrete overlays, you can transform ugly gray concrete surfaces with the look of authentic hand-cut stone at about half the cost of the real thing.

Swim weather is here and if you have a pool, you’re one of the most popular people in the neighborhood! With kids out of school and staycation time scheduled, you’ll want your pool in tip-top shape so it’s ready for anything the summer brings. 

Father’s Day is the perfect time to show Dad how much you love and appreciate him. And although dads are content with “classic” Father’s Day gifts like funny ties and tee shirts, personalized picture mugs, grilling tools and home brew kits for beer, why not push the envelope to extreme dimensions and get him a custom decorative concrete driveway from Concrete Craft®?

Did your last barbeque or patio party have people playing musical chairs to have a place to sit? Usually, patio tables and chairs are enough for the family--plus one or two--but with a party, you may find you’re having to bring out the dining room chairs or plastic “stackables” to accommodate everyone. Both of those options have drawbacks.

May is National Home Improvement Month, the perfect time to get some of those warm-weather projects done in the yard. Winter can take a toll on gardens, trees, landscape designs and hardscapes like concrete driveways, walkways, patios, pool decks and vertical surfaces, making your home look older and distressed. A spring facelift like this resurfaced and stained driveway is just one way to boost your home’s curb appeal and give you renewed pride in your home.

With winter weather finally in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to assess how your home and property came through the rough weather. Rain, snow, sleet and hail can take a serious toll on exposed concrete driveways, walkways, patios and porches. How would you like this to be your last Spring assessment of damage? With decorative concrete overlays from Concrete Craft® for your driveway and walkways, all you’ll have to deal with is the gardening. Your sealed concrete surfaces will remain intact year after year. 

How much time do you spend picking out a gift for your mom on Mother’s Day? There’s a lot of pressure to find the perfect gift to show how much you love her and appreciate all the years she’s dedicated to getting you all grown up. Not only those labor pains, but the many times she was there for scraped knees, stuffy noses, broken toys, broken hearts and encouraging you on your first real job.

It’s that time of year when 60% of American taxpayers get a tax refund and begin mentally spending it many times over on things they’ve wish for all year long. Every April there’s a little “lottery win” to spend on something special and moms, dads and kids all have wish lists ready:

In many areas of the country, Spring is a true awakening. Denuded trees and flowers buried under frost and snow spring to life, displaying myriad shades of new green growth. The landscape changes daily as the earth wakes up, stretching and yawning, eager to get back to its job of growing things. People, too, emerge from the cold of winter energized by the onset of Spring, but with a range of different perspectives and anticipations.
