A great way to have a more natural looking concrete area is to use the exposed aggregate technique. This occurs when different coloured stones and concrete are used in the concrete mix. The top surface of the concrete is washed off, exposing the coloured stones and leaving a natural and aesthetically pleasing finish that requires minimal maintenance.

Textured spray finishes come in multiple colour selections which is applied to the concrete by high pressure air spray or in some cases troweled onto the surface.
