By the way you made the right choice imho. :-)


Cool what you have done. Maybe you might want to start your own thread.

Step 4. Spread 1-2 inches of concrete over screen and chicken wire with a gloved hand.


Step 5. Let it set for a while then go over concrete with hand inside a plastic bag.


Step 6. Wait a few days before coloring.

Got a question for you on this with the "rock" skim coated like this how much weight can the concrete take? I'm debating trying to do this in a few places but could see the kids trying to walk on it so figured I'd check before hand.


Thanks
Jay

Just found this, this is incredible detail and love seeing it. Working on something similar in my backyard and love seeing what you have done here. Hope all is well and you are still active with it as I see it is an old post.

Cheers!

Wow, the folly looks like an awesome place to camp. Are there full hookups? Reservation list?
