Great work. Love the way you have some of the red from the stones stained into the concrete as well.

Re: A Patio Replacement


Love the hardscape - beautiful work

Hate the stair landing - Steps should be deeper - awkward

just my 2

Re: A Patio Replacement


Looks great.
How about some details. Did you pour the bands separately and then the infills? What colors etc. Integral, cast on etc. Is there a brand system?

What type of rock veneer on the columns and firepit. I assume its block under there.

That is the kind of work I want to be doing in my area, but I just don't have the in to that market. Nor am I at that level yet.

You'll have to take that up with the home builder. That was an existing condition. I just removed enough to cut the concrete, then put them back as is.

I wanted to make a concrete landing and steps, but the customer was ok with the way it was.

I designed, built, and gave the customer exactly what they wanted. Then I got paid in full within 3 days. That's what it's all about.

The contractor I was going against, also had 2 cents. He didn't get the job. It wasn't because I was low bidder, but because I proposed what the homeowner wanted.

I did pour the bands/borders separately. I had 4 different integral colors and 6 different release colors. No brand system. The rock veneer was the same as the existing columns, Chardonnay Southern ledge. It is a block structure. If you search California Designs on Facebook, you can find progressive pics with the Block structure and other details.
