Yes, quite popular around these parts. They lay a screed, colour it and then just before it sets they use a big steel embossing stamp to create a pattern, usually in the style of old stone flags... It's all done to make it look like something it isn't...

The final piece of embossing carried out is the details of the company who laid it...

Next time you're up this way I can show you two examples within a swallow's flight of here...

I believe the savvy concreters have expanded their palette of base colours, to half a hundred.

Chicks love it.
