Unique Broken Concrete Forum
Broken concrete is an extremely versatile material, as demonstrated in this unique circular inset bench. The landscape design by Guillaume Lemoine of Picture This Land, turned an underutilized enclosed front yard, into a relaxing social area for an adjacent home office and plenty of enjoyment for the homeowners. We incorporated a small fountain in between the major pillars of the concrete bench seats. The floor of the circular seating area was topped off with a decorative pebble gravel, and the bench was cushioned in a variety of native plants and annual wildflowers. While we often design/build directly with our clients, we always enjoy the special opportunity to work with other designers to help them realize their vision. We always appreciate the challenge of working with designers to ensure their designs are materialized with true craftsmanship and it's not often you can find a general contractor with our same degree of ecological sensitivity, and longstanding background with permaculture design.
