    Hi all, I'm trying to put in a white as possible concrete pathway to my patio in my garden. Would using, white cement, white limestone sand and 10-14mm washed stone chippings with ratio 1:2:3 mix work?. Also can white limestone sand work as concrete? Is it as effective as normal sand or is the other sand i can use. Thanks

    and put a DPM under it, and a bit of camber on the top.

    keeping it dry makes the colour lighter, and discourages dirt, moss and black mould.

    an edging of paving bricks protects the sides.

    And finish with acrylic concrete sealer or it won't stay white for long.
