Smoothing Out the Concrete Patio

We rented a concrete grinder last weekend and Eddie got the whole back patio done. It was really rough, and even just kneeling on it would hurt--so imagine falling from a bike or just tripping!

He went over each section in a cross-hatch pattern--north/south and east/west--and did that three times. The man is nothing if not thorough!






We filled the large cracks with concrete filler.

After--hard to see that the chalk makes a smoother mark now, oh well--you can see the paint has been mostly ground off though.


It looks a lot brighter now too.
