I just did exposed aggregate on my porch. It was 3/8" aggregate mix. Any concrete yard will know what ratios to mix it in. You let the concrete set up a bit, then you spray sugar water on top to a consistent layer. Let it sit a few hours and then spray off layer of "cream" with pressure washer. This is gathered from watching my contractor do it. Its not precise instructions.

Looks like Stipa arundinacea (Anemanthele lessoniana) to me.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

LuAnn Brandsen added this to Pathway Plantings That Please the Senses
5. Arid optionsA hot, dry location needn't torch your enthusiasm for pathway plantings. Fortunately some specimens can withstand the sizzling heat radiating from a sidewalk even in arid regions.
Frank Organ added this to Dare to Go Gray in the Garden
Neutrals, including gray, brown and green, provide a perfect backdrop for other colors. This is especially useful in garden design, where bold-colored plantings can take the front of stage against the gray garden framework of paving, fencing or walls. Here spurge (Euphorbia characias subsp. wulfenii) and New Zealand wind grass (Anemanthele lessoniana) pops against the muted paving, while the gray paving tones down the intense colors.
