The Versatility of Concrete
If you are looking for pool patio ideas, you are on the right page. You can choose from many types of materials but concrete is the most versatile choice. The reason is it’s clean, smooth and may be used to make geometric or curvilinear shapes.
Besides, concrete is inexpensive durable and offers permanence. Although it’s easy to pour a concrete slab, you need to apply specific techniques during the curing process for textures or patterns. Another way to add texture is to use a sturdy, stiff broom over the concrete. This technique will create a tooth on the concrete surface so you don’t slip over it when it’s wet.
Concrete pool patios ruled Palm Springs. This desert community gets a lot of sunlight and little rainfall. This part of the world enjoys a hot climate so the common plants that can be found in the area include cacti and succulents.
The pictures show a Midcentury Modern house designed by two popular architects Stan Sackley and William Krisel. The patio received a traditional broom-swept finish.
Both inside and outside this Arizona home, the same colors were used to connect the spaces. Designer Coffman Studio was behind all this work. This yard features succulents, ornamental grasses, rusticated steel planters, aqua walls, metal fire pit, and acid-finish concrete pavers and patios.
