  • The project, completed in Los Gatos, CA, included a pool deck divided by a 3deep jointed diamond grid pattern. It was integrally colored with Sandstone Color Hardener and Weathered Sage Release Agent using Italian Slate stamps, with Random Connecticut Bluestone bands.
  • The pool coping, seatwall caps and wall caps were all colored with Sandstone Color Hardener, and a sandwash finish. The seatwalls were also poured with concrete and stamped with Italian Slate.
  • The outdoor concrete countertop utilized three acid stain colors on white cement poured adjacent to black concrete. The built-in bar-b-que has a vertical face stamped with a thin topping, and stamped and colored to match the deck.

Tom Ralston of Tom Ralston Concrete in Santa Cruz, Calif., sent in these photos of a backyard that got all the concrete treatment. Using a variety of color combinations, designs, and different textures, Ralston was able to incorporate concrete into nearly every element existing in the backyard. The result? A one-of-a-kind retreat, exquisitely designed for outdoor enjoyment.
