In 2005, Asilomar State Beach had a big problem. The gorgeously rugged beach had suffered the ravages of coastal erosion, and the stairways leading to the beach had been severely and dangerously washed away.
When deciding how to resolve the erosion issue, the California Department of Parks and Recreation needed to find a solution that would be both cost effective and extremely durable. More than a decade ago, The Parks System chose GraniteCrete™.
GraniteCrete’s permeability and permanence were perfect for the project. Despite constant tidal encroachment, the steps look virtually the same today as when they were first installed. Some of this can be credited to the porous nature of GraniteCrete, and some to the permanence provided by the proprietary admixture.
For over 15 years, it has maintained its structural integrity. The State Beach has saved thousands of dollars in maintenance with an installation that has the durability of concrete, yet aesthetic beauty that no other product could provide.
