J.C. Santy Construction, Pulaski, Wisconsin, uses metallic and mica powders from Crescent Bronze Powder Co. to bring brilliant color to decorative concrete. One prime example is The Children's Garden created by artisan and owner Brad Santy for the Brown County Public Library in Green Bay, Wisconsin. These images show a bird's eye schematic of the layout of the walkway and, in close-up, reveal the rich metallic colors used to create one of the flowers.
Most of these photos show the work in progress. Below is a schematic showing the placement of the decorative concrete within the larger context of The Cellcom Children’s Edible Garden at the Brown County Library (where children actually grow edibles!). The Facebook page shows more photos of the garden and the “vine-cutting” event taking place on site.
Brady Santy was the artisan behind the decorative concrete landscape. The library and children are thrilled with the result. Visit the Brown County Library Facebook page to view photos of the completed project.
