    This cobble stone technique looks terrible when finished. Just saying

  2. Intuitive Pixie on September 11, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Love the glow in the dark pebbles!!!

  3. Hiker Trash on September 11, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Just pour the concrete, use a stamp and eat lunch bc u done!

    Mixing cement with a putty knife 👎

    Yeah this worked really well to slowly wall up one side of my basement. The slow concrete stacking and setting was a really nice effect. You could see how with each Ziplock the inexorable finality of the wall closing became impossible to avoid. Instead of using sand, I used a thick caulk adhesive to prevent any more sounds from coming from the area that I had just walled off.

    truly awful waste of some useful plastic bags

  7. Jon Straface on September 11, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Looks like absolute dog meat.

    Is that how the Ancient Ones built Machu Picchu?

  9. She Elf Johnson on September 11, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    I love this idea. If you did this using those green composting bags, they would disintegrate after the concrete hardened. They would probably make more of a round or irregular shaped stone.

    Bookmarked ,🔖wow

  13. briargoatkilla on September 11, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    I like when it slides right off the tool, too.

  14. TJX C on September 11, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    slide right off the tool… 👍

  15. Drex Ferguson on September 11, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I wonder if you could grind up those glow-in-the-dark stones, dust all of the tops of the wet stones and have the whole thing glow at night?

  16. Mike on September 11, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    These are the twos stupidest ideas I have ever seen. You should win some kind of award for that.

  17. Will Work 4 Fun on September 11, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I’m still waiting for the brilliant part.

  18. bfboobie on September 11, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    With the cost of all those Ziploc bags you could’ve bought flagstones and had them professionally installed

  19. Daren Miller on September 11, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    This has to be a California thing.

  20. Ed Sapp on September 11, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    How dud the finish product have different sized stones..anyone notice?

  21. Mike Johnson on September 11, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    As a professional concrete guy I advise that you don’t waste your money or time do it right all these procedures will just crumble and fall apart guaranteed

  22. unCultured on September 11, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Tip: do not listen to this guy… waste of materials

  23. JudeTex on September 11, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Can a 75 yr old woman accomplish this?

  24. Hypercube9 on September 11, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Any left over bag you can’t reach easily, you can just hit with a blow torch for a second and they’ll shrivel right up!

  25. Mikael Lindqvist on September 11, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    You made more mess out of that cement sack than i have ever seen lol!

  26. Salty Methods on September 11, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Meh…..

  27. Crystal m on September 11, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    what do you seal the pavers with after they’ve been painted?

  28. MusikCassette on September 11, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    you confuse concrete and cement in this vid.

  29. SayHelloToOblivion on September 11, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I appreciate the creative expression, but a time where we shouldn’t be using plastic, there’s this video. Hope people aren’t going to actually do this. What a waste for something that is not that gorgeous, to be honest.
    The second idea was much lovelier.

  30. Michael Jones on September 11, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    This video is absolutely ridiculous

  31. Char of Heart on September 11, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Wow! Most beautifully easy way to do pathway cement work! Thank you so much for the tips. Going to be working on my cobble stone soon. 🤗❤️👍🏾💯

  32. Stephen Swistchew on September 11, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Very good could you use a tiger torch to burn of the plastic save moving the concrete

  33. Femalej777 on September 11, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    👍🏾

  34. Dan Dan on September 11, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Like the video, don’t like the guy.

  35. Kid Shelleen on September 11, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Just cut the bag at the top.

  36. Kimber Neal on September 11, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    In love. .going to Lowe’s

  37. Yoshi Mitsu on September 11, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Once I saw the "brilliant" reason, I promptly tapped "Don’t recommend channel".

  38. Mike Johnson on September 11, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Stupid is as stupid does dig it out reinforce with rebar pour and stamp cobblestone actually would be less work and much better

  39. Kathy Radatz on September 11, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    what a great idea, I am going to do this for my front and back yard walkways.. thank you so much for sharing this ❤️

  40. Kimber Neal on September 11, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    And Joanne’s

  41. John Duzan on September 11, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    That concrete bag hack is inspiring and cool!

  42. Bill Bowman on September 11, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Guy thinks he’s bob ross the concrete guy. The second one must be the man in the relationship.

  43. K on September 11, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    more plastic in the garbage, think more planet friendly and not leave it to someone else to clear to dispose of it.

  44. Elver Galarga on September 11, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Why do i want to learn a Peasant job

  45. E.PLUMBUS UNUM on September 11, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Glad I found your presentation. I love this idea and may do it someday. You did a very nice job and those glow in the dark pebbles were a nice touch.

  46. Everything Dollar on September 11, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Lol

  47. Bomma26 on September 11, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    👀😂🤦

  48. cordellscott on September 11, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    "I’m just going to put some happy, glow in the dark pebbles right in there. Now that’s refreshing."

  49. Maxine Etheridge on September 11, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    This is a wonderful idea. I love natural stone, but it can get pretty expensive if you have a large area to cover. I’m thinking of using this technique to create borders for my garden beds. I assume that you could add coloring agents to the concrete as well – if you wanted a sandstone look, for example…? Nice tutorial, and very helpful tips and tricks. 😊

    Did I just watch John Malkovich do arts n crafts?
