Forgive me if this is common and known under some name I can't find it under...

Has anyone tried to finish a foundation exterior base with applying a base mortar coat and then troweling/throwing on gravel into the bed to achieve this sort of look - Pebbledashing. If so, any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated. I had been looking into re-stuccoing or applying ledgestone veneer to my foundation base but had this idea. Any thoughts/tips, and how this idea might compare in cost, ease of install, and weathering? Thanks much!

Should I worry this will happen? Yikes!

Wtf

I just read this on Wikipedia. WTF, for real? I would think tastefully done with other types of materials on the exterior it would be attractive.
