Solterra, the site of the 2008 Parade of Homes, needed a hardscape solution that fit the Tuscan-themed clubhouse and would be functional for each area of this upscale development, including the main drop-off area, the pool deck, and the patios.
Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes, installed Bomacron imprinted and colored concrete and an integral color swirl finish, keeping within the budget and achieving the desired look. The main drop-off, the entry area, and the focal walkway leading to the pool utilized the Bomacron Roman Cobble pattern. Technicians grouted in the stones in the pedestrian areas while the stones in the vehicular areas were stained to look like grout. The integral color swirl finish completed the unique design with bands used to separate the different areas and to bring detail to the patios. The field areas of these 5-inch, reinforced, monolithic pours received a stained finish to give it a different color than the bands.
The bull nose steps coordinate with the bull nose pool coping. A sandblasted and stained quote from Michelangelo, etched into the concrete, graces both entries. The poured-in place column bases in the amphitheater and the giant planter caps match the precast finish on the walls
