Desert Concrete by dc_us

Concrete veneer of an existing stone retaining wall based on FLW’s desert concrete

“I wanted to make the existing stone wall more planer by adding concrete veneer. I also wanted some of the existing stones to be visible to show the original construction, so the contractor came up with the technique of attaching wadded paper to the form boards so apertures were cast into the finish surface.” dc

We collaborated with Beth LaDove on the paving and landscaping design.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

On 10 September 2015, floodwaters driven by Typhoon Etau prompted mass evacuations in Japan and overwhelmed the drainage pumps at the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant. A TEPCO spokesperson said that hundreds of metric tons of radioactive water entered the ocean as a result.[193] Plastic bags filled with contaminated soil and grass were also swept away by the flood waters.[194]
