I'd like to mention that in creating the pool and walls, a lot of thought went into what was going to look good on the face of both. I knew I wanted a cobblestone look but to use real cobblestones would have been impossible because of the thickness and the cost. I did a lot of searching on the internet and found your product and thought it would be perfect! My boyfriend thought I was crazy when I suggested using these because of the quantity we would need but I said it was the only thing that could work. We made them throughout the winter and by spring we had 500 which was enough for the pool surround. When that was complete we made the balance of what we needed for the walls. All together we made about 1000 stones. I think in total we spent about $200 for all the materials (molds, dyes and concrete). Other advantages we found was being able to create the colors needed with the dyes, being able to control the thickness of the stones and the ease of applying them... (even to a round structure). There's an old cobblestone wall that I drive by everyday on my way to work. And while working on this project I used to look at it and think "that's exactly how I want the walls to look when we're done". And sure enough they do!
Will look forwarding to seeing the page on the website and getting everyone to vote! It would be so good to win the prize and then we could start building the outdoor kitchen -which of course will have the cobblestone facing.
Hi, here are the pictures of a project we did using your Cobblestone molds. The entire project was done by hand:
