Idyllwilde Recreation Center

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

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.

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.
