100_0101Exposed aggregate finish for concrete outdoors has taken off in popularity.

A great alternative the smooth concrete of a sidewalk, exposed aggregate provides a deceptively smooth finish, but with the more earthy texture of gravel.

It’s a great look and the detail in the rough appearance enhance any approach, from steps to sidewalk to driveway.
