Finished project pictures always look great, but don’t really tell the story of how we got there. This pool and landscape project was designed start to finish and had several adjustments along the way because of the pool height and the relationship to the yard. We needed to haul in tons of gravel for the pool base, and left all the pool excavation dirt on site to create the mounds and backfill. Rocks are always a great touch to provide interesting elevation changes and create different site lines. Although these pictures don’t show green grass, killer trees, and great finished concrete- they do show fantastic prep pictures. I’m proud of these pictures because to me it shows what was needed to get to where we are, and that this project is ready for concrete- and prepared very well.
How do you just forget to load pictures of an incredible job we did for some real nice folks in Royalwoods? Â I found these hidden away on my iPad during a recent update…..real sorry about that….enjoy though Â :)
we’re going to set this one up for a ASCC decorative concrete awards contest. Â Almost done and man, is this ever a cool project!
sometimes the weirdest situations create the most interesting techniques. Â Here’s an example of a water based stain over stamped concrete. The wrong release colour was used with coloured concrete, and this stain changed the entire tone of the project from an orangey brown appearance to this dark brown highlighted pad.
