I will try to get some pics up of some walls around here. They make these massive walls on the side of freeways over here. The guys that do it are skilled thats for sure. Looks way better than any block wall.

I havent seen that company aroud here but the walls i was referring to are built by big construction companies. There are dozens of companies that do those kind of walls around here.

Here is a pic of an entrance. It's done in a plain limestone look. I thought it look pretty good up close. I can see where it could start looking fake when you start staining the concrete if your not artistic and can't blend the colors. hope pic is good I didn't resize it.

Well, I've seen better work from StoneMakers than that. That seems a little dull and boring - just the color, if nothing else. They could have easily made that look a little more appealing and more natural with a little color and maybe sealing it too.

Anyway, it still fits a need. I'm sure the cost for that whole wall / columns, etc. was at least 50% less than if it would have been done by a stone mason. So I think this product still fits better into a lot of people's budgets.

I highly doubt that is a finished product yet. That is the entrance to there shop, that they have been working on for a while now. There logo is normally blue so I would imagine they will still ad some color to it.
