Seamless Texture Patio with Decorative Concrete Wall

Seamless Texture Patio with Decorative Concrete Wall

If you’re looking for a way to add subtle texture to your new concrete, a seamless texture stamp is an excellent option.

Seamless stamps, also called ‘texture skins’, give concrete a stone-like texture, but without a pattern. Instead, your concrete will appear to be one continuous piece of stone with no visible joints.

Seamless Texture Patio with Borders and Decorative Concrete Wall

In this recent project, we used a seamless texture stamp and added borders and decorative concrete walls to define the space. We couldn’t be happier with the final look!

Patio with Decorative Concrete Walls

Concrete walls don’t need to just hold dirt back – they can be a decorative piece in your yard or patio. Well placed seating walls are a simple and low cost way to incorporate a focal point that also serves as an entertaining area, as well as a showcase for design materials such as natural stone, into any outdoor garden space.

Because of the numerous decorative options that can be used, concrete walls do not need to be basic, gray and aesthetically unpleasing. They can be made to look like block or stone and colored to match your landscaping, making concrete a better alternative to stacked block walls.

Multi Level Stamped Concrete Patio

Multi Level Stamped Concrete Patio

We were thrilled to help these homeowners design this beautiful multi level stamped concrete patio.

With two different levels uniquely designed, they can now create different outdoor living spaces that blend together smoothly. For example, one level could be a dining area with space for a table and chairs while the second level could be a space for grilling out or even relaxing in a hot tub.

This patio was created with a darker, contrasting border which helps to define the different outdoor living spaces.

Making A Good First Impression With Your Entryway

Just look at this elegant, stamped concrete entryway with its complementary colors and dark, contrasting border. Now that's a dramatic entryway!

The front entryway of your home or business is the first thing that visitors will see, so you want it to make a good impression.

The key to making a good first impression with your entryway is using it to complement the rest of your home. For instance, you might choose to have a concrete overlay applied that matches or complements the siding on your home. Alternatively, you might choose the look of natural stone, wood or tile to match your home’s aesthetic “feel”.

If your entry is boring, old concrete, then you’re making the wrong impression. Just look at this elegant, stamped concrete entryway with its complementary colors and dark, contrasting border. Now that’s a dramatic entryway!
