For those who want their driveway to make a statement.
Honed Concrete is the height of luxury and style for the exterior of your home.
Similar to it’s counterpart exposed aggregate, it comes in the same myriad of colours, mixes and customisable styles. The difference between the two is that the process of honing the aggregate removes the rugged texture you get with an exposed application.
This process leaves your driveway with a smooth appearance that makes the colours in the concrete an eye catching feature
This application not only looks great on driveways, but is perfect for pool surrounds, outdoor entertaining areas and pathways.
Creating a seamless look around the outside of your home that is timeless and will be enjoyed for the life of your home.

The Honed Concrete Driveway Process
If you’re in the process of deciding what type of decorative concrete is right for your driveway, it may help to know the process. Honed concrete is a great application but does have a few more steps involved compared to exposed aggregate. This can mean that the process takes slightly longer, but with seamless results.
When you make the decision to choose Terrastone for your architectural concrete application, our project manager will be there throughout the entire journey to ensure that the best practices and care are used from start to finish.
Our process for creating a honed concrete driveway is extremely thorough and includes the following steps:
1) Site Prep
The area where your driveway installation will occur gets prepped and levelled. During this process any cables, pipes or underground works that need to go through this site will be installed.
Boards or foam get installed around the site in specific areas. This is to make sure that while the concrete is getting poured and during the curing process, that it maintains its form.
3) Reinforce the concrete
The site is further prepped by laying steel mesh across the area where the concrete is to be poured. The steel mesh gives the concrete added strength and helps to reduce cracking.
4) Concrete is Mixed
While the site is being prepped, your decorative concrete mix is being created off site at a small batching plant. Using only the best materials and up to date technology, your concrete mix designed to not only look great but built to handle tough Perth elements.
5) Concrete Delivered and Poured
Your concrete gets delivered to site and poured by our experts who to a minimum of 100mm for every project. Once our team has skilfully poured the concrete, it is then left to set and cure for approximately 24-48 hours. This time is necessary in making sure the concrete is strong enough for traffic.
6) Concrete Honing Process
Once set, your concrete is ready for honing! Our team of concrete finishing specialists will come in with concrete grinding equipment and begin removing the top layer of your application. This exposes the stones and grinds them down until they are at the desired level of smoothness.
7) Sealants Applied
The driveway is the cleaned and sealed with a coating that protects it from the elements and assists in reducing cracking. We can also add a coating that adds grip to your honed concrete application (this is perfect for pools surrounds).
8) The Finished Product
The site gets a solid cleaned one more time! Leaving you with an eye catching driveway to enjoy for years to come!
