I purchased this for an 8' x 22' patio and it worked effectively. I used basic Sakrete Mix (not quick-crete) and waited 5-10 minutes for removal & on to the next. It is also tapered inside for easy release. Be sure to tamp mix inside mold well & thoroughly clean after each use.
Wanted to make a neater garden area with a path between sections.
I absolutely loved the Belgian Mold set. The project we were doing in our backyard turned out better than we expected. My friends and neighbors were astonished by the Pathmate and are already asking to borrow it (but I have to let them order their own). We have more projects in our future!
i love this thing. it has made my life so much easier. now i can have the look i want without hiring someone else to do it for me. just put it where you want it and fill i don't believe it could get any easier.
Mold worked as planned. We ended up using 3/4 of a 80lb bag of concrete per mold. This ratio seemed to work well. One tip: Do not leave cement in mold longer than 30 minutes, we made this mistake and ruined a section when it hardened to the mold. Overall, not a super easy project but much cheaper than premade pavers!
