I had never considered concrete as a landscaping material since it always just seems to be used for pathways and driveways where I come from. It definitely could be a more price friendly option though.

The modern-day landscape is all about concrete. But I think it is also necessary to maintain a lot of things – nature trails with concrete paths make sure nature trail doesn’t get effected.
