Decorative stucco, is a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water applied over an extruding steel mesh fixed to an exterior wall or directly onto any concrete or rough masonry surface. Stucco can be coloured and therefore combines well with other types of exterior cladding. It is extremely malleable when applied, which means you can create the precise texture or motifs you are looking for. Apply stucco to the concrete foundation of your home as well to the facade.
