Stamped concrete can be used to beautify pool decks, driveways, entries and courtyards, and patios. Due to the wide array of patterns and colors available stamped concrete is becoming more popular and frequent. Colors and patterns for stamped concrete are often chosen to blend with other stone, tile or patterned concrete elements at the residence. Complex designs incorporating steps, courtyards, and fountains can be achieved. Stamped concrete can also be blended with other decorative concrete elements such as exposed aggregate finishes and acid-etch staining. Concrete can be sawed into patterns with a concrete saw or grooved with a hand tool. Often different colors will be used in the different "fields" of the pattern by using concrete stains, cast on release or color hardener. A favorite use of saw-cuts is creating the look of tile in textured concrete. The possibilities are endless!
