Idyllwilde Recreation Center

Client Need:
The designer wanted to create the look of an old time watering hole for this community center building.

Solution:
Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes integrated Sandscape Texture with Bomanite imprinted concrete and specially created artificial rocks. A detail the designer wanted to see in this project was a random edge on the Bomanite Imprinted Concrete areas. Our crews, after pouring and stamping a section of Bomanite would pull off the form and cut back the concrete to match the pattern line of the Small Random Slate pattern.

Results:
The jagged edge between the Bomanite and Sandscape Texture was just the look that was desired. The pool coping was also formed and stamped with a meandering front edge to give the look of an old waterhole. All the Bomanite was stained with Seal Brown Patène Artectura® which added to the old, weathered look the designer was trying to achieve. A Bomanite patio and picnic area were also installed to match the pool deck.
