Winner of a 2012 ASCC Decorative Concrete Council Award - First Place Certificate for Cast-in-Place, Special Finishes, Over 5000 SF.
This project took over 150 yards of concrete and over 200 yards of dirt were hauled away. Retaining the hillside was the biggest task. The retaining walls, seat walls and stair walls were all colored with an Alcantar Nutmeg Color hardener and were hard troweled for a mottled variegated look. The stair landings, pool deck and walkways were colored with Matcrete’s Phoenix Tan and textured with a Light Italian Slate Texture. A clear release agent was used. For the wall caps, stairs and pool coping Matcrete’s Limestone color hardener was applied. The stairs received a sand washed finish, while the wall caps were hard troweled.
