The earthy appeal of exposed aggregate

Exposed aggregate is the perfect concrete finish to create a stylish looking outdoor area. This natural looking finish is a fantastic way to enhance your outdoor area and can be used to construct garden paths, pool edges and surrounds, and outdoor entertainment areas such as patios. This concrete finish is visually stunning, hard wearing and extremely practical as a non-slip, foot friendly surface.

Eye-catching coloured concrete

Coloured concrete is an eye-catching way to update your outdoor area and will bring new life to your property. Coloured concrete can be used to create a feature driveway, instantly improving the street appeal of your home. Coloured concrete is created through a tinting process, rather than painting, which gives it a highly durable and skid resistant finish.

Create unique patterns with stenciled concrete

Think of stenciled concrete as artwork for your outdoor area. Stenciled concrete is a great way to incorporate unique patterns and designs into outdoor areas like driveways, garden paths, patios and more. It’s also a great way to mimic the appearance of brick or cobble without the labour costs.
