    Default concrete edging

    My front sidewalk has unsightly sides that are exposed. The ground slopes away from the side that shows to the driveway/street and exposes unsmooth sides. Do you have an idea to cover the sides? Is there a product for this?

    I wondered about liquid nailing some tile?

    I would love to post some pics but do not know how to do it. Viz show me the way. You do it all the time. How do I resize or how do I get it from my puter to a post here? I thought that I had done this at one time, but ehh?

    I also have a wmv in an email that I would like to post.

    Unsightly?

    Hell, that looks like steps to a museum. Anything I have that's concrete is all ****ing busted up and cracked.

    You could put planter boxes on each row, just set them into the ground a bit and put seasonal flowers or something in there, something the deer won't munch on.

    what i suggest is to rake your existing mulch back get some topsoil and raise the grade to cover the ugly sides of the walk, make sure you step it in pretty good so it wont settle back down then rake the mulch back over the soil. 2 inches of mulch will turn into an inch of mulch very quickly and youll be in the same boat. The dirt will keep it hidden for much much longer.

    Default concrete sidewalk

    I appreciate your suggestions. I have carpet in the big closet (that I have not installed for the walking surface) and I have patched the walk on surface.

    The dirt/mulch does not hold. I'm thinkin' I need to pretty up what your looking at so that it's good to look at, dirt, mulch, or not.

    I would have to chisel some of the excess, from the 2 x4 brace forms, and finish the sides with something semi permenant. It's also time to trim those bushes, because they are crowding the walkway.
    I don't know if I can stain the cement, with the little bit of carpet glue that I've not conquered/removed (still left).

    Please move this to the appropriate thread..............drunkin fingers.

    In modern days, this walkway would have been a foot or two wider, but it's goinna outlive me, so can I fix it?
