Concrete stamping, stenciling and staining are all economical ways of achieving a high-end look that mimics the above while at the same time providing a virtually maintenance-free product.  No weeds to pull, ants to kill or uneven substrates to worry about.  Simply pressure wash and reseal every 2-3 years and your concrete will look as good as new!
