Floating (coloured) concrete steps

When the owners of this stunning new home in central Auckland were looking for a landscape company to put the finishing touches to their project, their architect recommended they get in touch Master Landscaper - Darrell Smith of Landsmiths Limited. Darrell and his award winning team have a passion for designing and installing some of Auckland's most stunning gardens.

After spending some time at our showroom, PFL155 was chosen by the clients (also a favourite colour of Darrell's due to its earthy, natural tones). The colour was used in all aspects of the hardscaping, from the driveway and rear patio, to these amazing 'floating' entrance steps.

The 'floating steps' proved a challenge during the construction process, not only from a structural viewpoint but also how to ensure that once the boxing was removed the surface resembled the trowel finish that the rest of the slabs had. To overcome this, Darrell applied textured wallpaper to the inside of the boxing pre pour resulting in an almost perfect match. The hard work and patience has certainly been worthwhile.

To help with ongoing maintenance and to keep the concrete looking in fantastic condition, PFL Glaze Sealer was applied adding lustre and enhancing the colour.

The clients could not be happier with the outcome and are thrilled to have such an awe inspiring entrance to their home.
