We have three separate concrete stairs in our home -- the front stairs, the den stairs (front, first floor) and the back door our garage.

The front steps is about 6' wide and we have 4 steps including the top. The top level is about 3' x 6'. The second stairs is about 4' x 3', 2 stairs. The garage stairs is about 4' x 3', three stairs.

None of this concrete has ever been painted, etc.

Is Behr's products good for staining concrete?

We have gardens (bushes) on either side of all of these stairs. What should we do to protect the bushes? What about getting the cleaning step into the ground? What should we do to prevent this?

If we decide to hire someone to do this, who should we call? A painter? A mason?

Thank you.
