I am planning to lay some form of stone path as well as a patio space and am considering my different options. I have seen the Quikrete mold (e.g., country stone) and like the idea but I'm concerned about durability and moreover, prefab appearance. Does anyone have experience with this product and insights?

Also, I have a friend who has used "urbanite", or reclaimed, broken pieces of concrete to form pathways. It looks decent, but a little rough in places. Anyone else have experience using this?

Thanks for any input.
