    Any creative suggestions here for concealing cracked concrete? I have a cement patio with a significant crack across the top of the stairs, leading down to the yard area. I was wanting the cheapest option, as this is for an IP that just needs sprucing up, and preferably for the least amount of dollars :)

    My idea was just to either use paving paint or stencil it and put a mat across the offending area (it wouldn't look out of place).
    Is there a silicon or cement putty, however, that I could use first to fill in the crack beforehand? The concrete is fairly new looking (less than 5 yrs old)
    Appreciate any ideas :)
