The aggregate stones can not actually be seen when the mix is initially poured. It actually looks like simple coloured concrete when first poured.
It's left to set overnight and then the guys returned the next day to blast the cement with a very high pressure hose (3000psi). Like magic, the surface layer of cement is blasted away to reveal the beautiful aggregate mix beneath.
The driveway feels really good under bare feet. It has grip. Looks great. There are different quality aggregate mixes. We are very happy with this one and very happy with the work of our landscaper and concreter. Excellent organisation and coordination resulted in a job really well done.
We can't wait for the rest of our landscaping works to start. This will transform the house to yet another level.
