Residential homeowner, Vince Ginn contacted Bomanite Licensed Contractor, Concrete Arts to get ideas for his patio and sidewalk in Hudson, WI. He visited their showroom and immediately fell in love with a pebbled stream that flows through their parking lot. Tom Graf, owner of Concrete Arts worked with the client to create a custom look using pebbles at the entrance of his home. To compliment the pebbles, a Bomanite Exposed Aggregate look was used, Revealed by Bomanite.
No color was added to the Sidewalk and Patio finish. Just a white base cement with a Salt and Pepper aggregate was used. Tom suggested keeping the River view side of the home a simple revealed look while creating a “wow” factor to the road side. They decided to integrate Mexican Beach Pebbles in a diamond shape.
Concrete Arts poured the front walk way. To get the diamond shape they cut the specific dimensions into a piece of plywood and marked out the areas with a string line. Next, they hand placed the pebbles into the concrete following the marked areas. To press in the pebbles, they used the plywood to step down on the rocks to the desired depth, creating a unique entrance into the clients home.
