L. M. Scofield Company has introduced a new set of colored admixtures for concrete projects where a darker, more recessive soil or vegetation color scheme is desired.

Called Naturescapes, Scofield Systems' Chromix Admixtures consist of nine new integral concrete hues developed to complement the "U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management’s Standard Environmental Colors Guide."

Naturescapes' admixture colors are designed to visually recede into the natural surroundings.

Naturescapes is recommended for a range of projects, including hard landscapes, cast-in-place or precast structures and interior floors.  

The deep earth tones, including Shale Green, Beetle and Sudan Brown, are available in powder form only.

Scofield recommends colored concrete projects for hardscape and cast-in-place or precast structures.

Scofield says Naturescapes "can help to dramatically improve coordination of the hardscape and its visual impact when used in a multitude of natural conditions such as grasslands, deciduous or coniferous forests or rocky arid areas."

Based in Los Angeles, CA, L.M. Scofield Company manufactures and markets decorative concrete products worldwide.
