A couple of years ago my husband and I bought 25 lbs. of cement mix for recovering the basement floor. I was the one who was planning on doing the work, but so many other parts of life happened that I never got around to it.
This spring, weeds have been growing in the cracks of our sidewalk, as they do every year. Last year I was more aggressive in keeping them pulled. But here they are again!
So I decided that I would use the cement that we bought from 2 years ago to fill the cracks of the sidewalk. Of course, I had to pull weeds before I did it and prepare the cracks to give the best bond possible.
Between the pulling of the weeds and the mixing and pouring of almost 50 lbs. of cement, it took me two days. (I had to go back to the store for a second 25 lb. box.)
Of course, it’s not a professional job, but the cracks are filled and the weeds aren’t growing there anymore.
I’m actually not done with all of the cracks, but those were the only two nice, warm days that were good for allowing cement to harden properly. It was actually kind of hard work, so I’m glad for the colder weather to be able to get some rest before I do anymore.
