What to do with a cracked concrete path

Hi everyone 

Complete newbie here.

We need some ideas of what to do with this cracked concrete path. Do we repair it or replace with something else?

We would like to make some wider stairs down the middle of the garden through where the pigface is eventually.

Re: Cracked concrete path.

Hi @Mhall,

 

I reckon the concrete looks OK. Replacing it would be expensive. I'd suggest just painting it - https://www.bunnings.com.au/diy-advice/paint/how-to-paint/how-to-paint-a-concrete-driveway

 

Before you paint you probably want to clean it and might find that improves it a lot and you might not even need to paint.

I'd spend the money on the stairs - that's what's needed most I'd reckon.
