The Sand Wash Finish

Add Some Traction to Your Step

Walkways, water features and pool decks are usually what comes to mind when thinking of a sand washed finish. Its sandy texture leads people to think of bare feet and flip-flops during the hot summer days but it is not limited to these few applications. A stamp and custom color theme can be used to blend a sand finish in with any aspect of the entire landscape. The sandy look is pleasant on the eyes and adds a soft visual appeal which can help other features stand out. The texture can also be purely utilitarian and serve as traction when opening up to the rest of the yard. So, even though summer safety might be the first thing to consider when designing kids play areas, keep in mind that there are many uses for a sandy finish. It serves as extra character and dimension to a yard and works great for traction when the barbeque and beverages come out during football season.

Play With the Sandy Texture

Water-wise landscaping has become a standard now that the city utilities offer discounts on xeriscaped lawns. Often people can get lost when thinking of how to keep it interesting but what better than a sandy walkway to tie in with river rock and those native plants. Think of a lake-front beach resort when considering sand washed concrete. All that is needed to be one step closer to that summer getaway is a custom outdoor bar, swinging hammock and activity area. For a natural camping look consider a boulder seat-wall and firepit or a sand textured Tiki Lounge patio. Maybe a jetted tub is just what is needed to give that feel of a hidden away hot spring. Take a look through our gallery to get some ideas on what has been done before and be sure to contact us if you have any further questions.
