Kensington Landscape Services
Answer: Concrete
Explanation: Concrete will last longer than anything in most cases as long as the concrete was installed properly. The sub-grade needs to be fine graded and compacted throughout the entire area where concrete will be poured. Rebar reinforcement is something we strongly recommend and use on nearly all our jobs. We usually will install rebar on 36" centers each way and then tie it all together. It depends on what the concrete will be used for to determine the spacing in between the rebar. Once the concrete is poured, it will need to have expansion joints or control joints installed every 12' each way to create the weakest point in the concrete. This is basically a controlled crack that runs below the joint and won;t ever be noticed. This is one of the most important things about concrete that is often skipped due to poor quality worksmanship.
