Project Size: 189sqm
Out at Bonogin for this one which is always a pleasure, being a bit of a bush kid I love getting away from the rat race a bit, even if it is only a few minutes out of town.
After meeting with our clients, we decided on a Salt and Pepper variety driveway with a mix of 75% white stone, along with an Onyx colour oxide that was to go through the concrete, giving an overall dark visual to the finish.
After spending a few days getting everything set up ready to pour, our client then contacted us with doubts about what the final look would be like, so we found a few more pictures of what this design looked like, and the decision was made that it would be too dark for what they were trying to achieve.
A quick call to the concrete supplier and the colour was cancelled, we took it out of the mix and ended up just going with the Salt and Pepper at 75%, giving a much lighter and brighter appeal to the finished result.
As with all our work these days, we broke the project down into smaller sections, this allows us to give the concrete the love and attention it needs to gain the best results possible. Completing three separate pours before having it all ready for saw cutting and acid cleaning.
Being our own biggest critics on a job site, it was a pleasure to see the finished result of this one literally being perfect. Don’t get me wrong, we’re also the first to notice the ones that don’t work out perfect as well, but this one didn’t have a single stone out of place, no tool marks, thoroughly even stone nearly perfectly exposed throughout and flat a flat iron to boot.
Our client is going to send us a few pics with it all sealed in the next few weeks, so I’ll get a few more pics posted up then as well.
As always, a big thank you to our clients, your professionalism and hospitality were outstanding.
