    Quikrete Walk Maker Patio Build Summer 2017. Perfect size and strength to make the job so much easier. It was very simple and straightforward. I don’t usually get my hands dirty in the yard but I was able to use this without any problems. Make sure and mix the concrete well. Our Results: https://giph.io/v.php?pm=881W
