Working with concrete can be a lot off fun, even addicting!
Camas, WA (PRWEB) June 05, 2011
The trend for “do-it-yourself” continues to climb and as most of us need to control project costs by doing it ourselves - we also often desire the personal satisfaction that comes from adding one’s own personal touch to home projects. For those dreaming of adding elegance, that special something to a home or a landscape using concrete molds is one way to make these dreams a reality.
Artistic Home and Garden Co. located in Camas, Washington, has released a series of how-to videos on their website, http://www.historystones.com demonstrating the process of how to cast concrete through to installation of projects such as concrete railing, fountains, columns as well as simpler items like concrete benches and spheres.
Using concrete molds is much less expensive than purchasing ready made concrete elements for home and landscape. Artistic Home & Garden Co., located in Camas, Washington, shares tips in the how-to videos for working with concrete learned through 15 years in the business of producing concrete molds. The videos demonstrate that the process is pretty straight forward, not complicated, requiring just inexpensive premixed concrete straight out of a bag from your local hardware store or home improvement center. The use of concrete colorants or stains can be used to jazz up finished concrete pieces if desired. Visit http://www.historystones.com website to get more ideas.
History Stones’ garden design line includes molds for creating pavers, bird baths, plaques, garden benches, edging and bird baths. The architectural line includes professional quality molds for creating structural concrete baluster style railing (a complete system) columns, pedestals, newel posts and post/pier caps, concrete spheres and fountains.
Whether the project is a grand European style railing system, a backyard pergola made of concrete columns or a simple accent, watching the how-to videos is inspirational and makes it look like working with concrete could be a lot of fun, maybe even addicting.
