We just finished pouring a concrete walkway and pad for a project in Novato.
The concrete finish we used we a seeded aggregate. There are several different
options for seeded aggregate, both in terms of the stone that is seeded, and the
size of the stone seeded.
Example of stone on pathway we just completed- 3/4″
Red River aggregate
Seeding in progress- stones are broadcast and then
embedded into the surface of the concrete. The concrete is washed away to reveal
the packed stones at the surface.
Seeding completed- 3/8″ smaller Pami Pebble
Example of another aggregate stone- Salmon
