    Here is a small job we are squeezing in while we do the big one. Just too pillars and some plantings. It was a pain in the butt finding the right cultured stone. The original stone was no longer made. We ended up having to put to different colors from 2 different manufactures to match the original stone.

    What's up with the back of the pillar? It looks all jumbled.

    This is a stupid questions but those templates don't have any texture on the back right? The back of them is just completely flat or it's the same on both sides?

    MRusk: I am not feeling the color choices at all, but i am assuming that it was meant to match the rest of the house. i am not a big fan of cultured stone, but again that is what the rest of the house is done in so your stuck. The craftmanship looks good, i just can't get past how fake that rock looks with those colors. ow well, it is what it is.
