Concrete designs are durable, versatile, and economical ways to liven up your landscape. This essential hardscape material can be shaped and finished into a wide variety of surfaces and structures: patios, decks, walkways and bridges. Decorative surfaces and textures can be created by using exposed aggregate, tints and colorants, and unique concrete stamps.
There are two basic steps in planning a hardscape project. First, get ideas from other projects that you have seen, so you know what look you want. Second, follow the building codes to create a structurally sound plan.
How to Stamp Concrete
Creating custom walls, fences, decks and patios starts with pouring a footing or foundation. This takes time and preparation. We use a large enough crew to get the job done quickly and properly. And our results speak for themselves. We have been in business since 1998 with an A+ BBB rating. Count on us to do your project right for strong, beautiful results.
You can’t rush good concrete designs. This hardscaping material yields the most durable and attractive finish when poured at an air temperature between 50 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. We make sure your forms are sturdy enough to stand up to the weight and pressure that will be exerted on them. We wait until the bleed water disappears and it has hardened a little before floating the surface.
In concrete designs and hardscaping, here’s a good rule of thumb: when the footprints you leave are light enough that you can no longer tell which type of shoes you are wearing, the project is ready to continue. Once the surface begins to harden a little you can use your stamping tools to create the desired texture for a deck, driveway or walkway. We can also add tints that harmonize with your exterior colors and lend a richness that also hides everyday dirt and grime.
