Patio floor? - Hi. Would you mind sharing if the patio floor is stamped concrete or bluestone? Or another material? Thank you so much for your time.

The concrete has color mixed in to the concrete mix. When it was originally poured it was almost black but as you can see it really fades. Don't be afraid to go bold. The score lines were hand troweled using a hand trowel finishing tool. (Not stamped) The score lines serve a purpose they're there to prevent the concrete from cracking.

My personal preference is to make the score lines further apart. It seems to make a space appear smaller with too many lines. Your contractor can advise you on this. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Smart Landscaping Slices Energy Bills
While evergreens with dense foliage provide a stronger buffer, these highly structured conifers have an architectural appeal.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Energy Now: Designing a Garden That Gets You Going
In contrast, these Italian cypress trees (Cupressus sempervirens, zones 7 to 10) create a different feeling. Their narrow, upright forms infuse the space with energy, especially combined with the bright orange umbrella.
Frank Organ added this to Orange in the Garden: Do You Dare?
I’m sure even the most ardent orange-aphobe would admit that this radiant patio dining set adds to the overall design of the garden. It creates a focal point in a garden that is dominated by foliage and lawn, but it is not overpowering.

I'm not into the brick but I like how there is a band around the edge of the concrete. This could be done with a score line in the concrete.
