Sephaku Cement showcases some of the simplest Outdoor Concrete Design Features that can be incorporated into your DIY concrete projects with little to no building and landscaping experience.
Embedded Concrete Lighting Features
From dainty down lights to uplight garden landscaping, concrete design installations that incorporate light fittings embedded within the concrete application create a seamless flood of illumination, delicate enough to add to the ambience while still offering an effective outdoor lighting solution. From LED lit concrete pathways, to cement paver dots, subtle uplight garden edging or the sheer magnificence of concrete column lighting to increase height and added drama, concrete creates the ideal capsule to produce a subtle glow to any decorative outdoor concrete design.
Path Maker Paving Moulds
Possibly one of the simplest ways to landscape garden pathways without the help of a concrete contractor, pathway paving moulds are designed with the home improvement DIY enthusiast in mind. A user-friendly solution to pave tea gardens, outdoor entertainment areas, cladded pathways, courtyards and even cobbled driveways, paving moulds are available in a variety of designs and details that produce an expert finish at a fraction of the cost. Making use of two or more moulds at a time (for a more speedy application) depending on the finish you wish to achieve paving moulds can be placed to create a repetitive design or rotated in alternate patterns to create a more random arrangement.
Concrete Retaining Walls
Ideal for homes and gardens landscaped on a slope, concrete retaining walls offer a minimalist sophistication, and modern flare to its functional purpose. Sculpted around the sloped banks of your garden landscaping, concrete retaining walls can be used to create decorative flowerbeds and beautifying embankments and shelfs that make it easier to manoeuvre around otherwise steeply sloped gardens. Placed using timber frame casting moulds customised to any design you can imagine, this simple decorative concrete feature can be fitted with a smooth sand-finish or textured with concrete stamping or etching made to fit any theme or concrete design concept.
Concrete Braais and Fire Pit Fittings
Heat resistant and made to last a lifetime, concrete braais, modern fire pits and decorative concrete fire bowls add a refined finish to every outdoor entertainment area. While some may opt for brick and wrought iron alternatives, concrete braais and decorative fire pits can be built to make use of a variety of fuels including wood, gas and other fuel alternatives. Able to withstand any heat produced while also offering a diverse selection of design options, get your garden looking gorgeous with a fire pit, decorative concrete fire bowls and customised concrete braais.
