For the tea lover
If your friend or family member likes to drink tea and try on different flavors of tea, you can’t miss a tea wreath. Even the look at it will make them awed. So, all you need is some tea packets of different flavors to spice it up. You can buy these flavors form any shop. You will need cardboard, wrapping paper and cloth pins or even other type of pins that will be able to pin the tea packets to the board. Have a ribbon for hanging. It’s also a really sweet kitchen décor.

If you’re looking for a unique way to add value to your bungalow in Greektown, consider re-landscaping the walkway to your front door with stamped concrete. Concrete is no longer a cheap and inferior material, fitting easily into any landscaping plan and budget. With proper installation, your concrete can add a touch of style and sophistication that will complement your neighbourhood’s aesthetic. Visitors will marvel at the beautiful designs when they walk up to your house, as you appreciate the inexpensive durability that stamped concrete provides.
While driving through the city, have you ever admired a patio or drive way that looks like it is made of stone tiles? In all likelihood, what you’re looking at isn’t made of actual inlaid stone blocks. Instead, it’s made of stamped concrete – style of concrete that is becoming increasingly popular in Toronto, as it accurately mimics the look and feel of fancy stonework like limestone and flagstone.
While this concrete imitates the expensive look of actual inlaid stone blocks, it does it without duplicating its steep price tag. That’s because once the foundation is made, concrete can be poured and stamped in one piece. It doesn’t require the painstaking installation of each individual stone, so you won’t be wasting money on endless hours of labour. With quick installation, you’ll also have full use of your property faster; once the concrete is set, you can start walking on it straight away.
Stamped concrete, like any other form of concrete, will require a bit of maintenance to help prolong its lifespan. A professional contractor will protect your surfaces with reliable sealants that insure against colour fading and climate damages. All you have to do on your end is to sweep and wash your concrete every so often to prevent dirt buildup and help to preserve the seal. For indoor variants occasionally using floor wax and polishes can help to protect the seal from everyday wear and tear that you’d expect from areas that get a lot of foot traffic. Ultimately, taking care of your stampedconcrete floor is a simple task, and if you encounter any unusual chips or cracks, your expert contractor will happily repair them entirely.
With a beautifully laid concrete, the walkway to your Greektownhome will never have looked so good. As you begin your spring landscape clean-up, don’t delay in calling the curb appeal will increase ten-fold, and soon you’ll be calling your Elite Concrete for all of your landscaping needs.
