    Hi all
    Part of our garden has two areas ( butting up to the house) the first is concrete and (what looks like) smooth paving labs. these are pink and seemed to be laid on a concrete base. Then there is a slight drop to a large area that is covered in patio slabs that are in a different colour.
    Ideally we want to raise up the patio slabs to the same height. As they dont match colour I was hoping there is a product out there that i could use to paint the lot?
    I was looking at resincoat but wondered if that would be the best stuff?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Many thanks for that.
    The project is on hold at the moment.
    One thing i did as a temporary fix on some block work was to use some cuprinol garden shades . I just slapped it on.
    3 years later it is a bit faded and dirty but the paint hasntflaked or come off. I am wondering whether that and then some sealant might work?

    I painted my concrete slabs with Coo-Var Anti-Slip Acrylic Floor Paint last year. There aren't loads ofg colours but I really like the grass green look.

    It has worn a bit so will be a yearly job, I don't plan on doing this indefinitely bit until I can find the time and inclination to redo the patio
