How do I accomplish this texture on my porch floor? +/-???? - When you say this is exposed aggregate - can you tell me how this is done, what stone it is in the mixture? I like this. Making decisions on exterior porch and patio spaces ....now.

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.
