I was playing around with some ways to fix cracks in my stamped sidewalk at home. Any kind of patch repair will stick out like a red flag on the textured concrete. I liked the idea of using the crack so it would fit into the look of my sidewalk and still prevent water from undermining the sidewalk.
I took a diamond blade and scored the crack. Next I took a Dremel tool with a diamond bit and carved the outline of the leaves and stems. The plant I copied is an ivy vine. I was trying to make it look like the plant is growing out of the joint.
I used colored tile grout for the stem. Then I added some color to the leaves and sealed it. I’m really happy the way it turned out. I wanted it to look like the plant is growing across the sidewalk.
