Stamped Concrete Patio

Double Tier

It all starts with planning and communication. You can see that in the photo. It’s beautiful. This does not happen by wishing of course. It is a matter of sitting down with the homeowners and getting ideas and interchanging thoughts.

The photo is a follow up of an earlier post we shot while the patio was under construction. The process was to pour the footings first. We then were able to lay the block. After the block was laid we formed and poured the block along with the sitting bench. With the walls up and poured this allows us to back fill the areas with stone and pouring of the stamped concrete. Then the stone is applied to the walls.

The sitting wall was formed using a chipped stone edge form. The upper patio is poured using a large slate stamp and for the lower area we used a salt texture and saw cut diagonally approx. 4′ on center. The transition height from the upper to the lower patio is about twenty inches.

    Wow. Amazing looking patio, in an amazing looking place. Your right, stuff like that just doesn’t happen. It takes a lot of creativity, talent, and planning. With enough hard work by both parties, homeowner and contractor, more work like this could be in people’s back yards. Amazing Job.

    Thanks for the site comment. When I get time I look to look at other peoples work from around the country, but rarly comment. Styles and design change from one region to another. Out here in Kansas the Pony Express only comes once a month, so we have to get online to see what’s happening in the world and get new ideas.
