Steps and Walkway

Turn a dull concrete stoop into a showpiece by capping the treads and risers with stone. For example, the same New York bluestone used for the treads can be echoed in the new mortared front walkway, creating a seamless transition between stoop and path. The risers can be clad in gray natural granite veneers. Other DIY capping options include clay Saltillo, split-brick, and limestone pavers.
