Broom finish

Right now I have a section that's broom finished. I want to pour cement on a unfinished part of my yard but I want it in a wash finish. Is it possible to match the broom finished section without breaking the concrete?

Would a 'wash finish' be where they rinse off the portland at the surface to expose the aggregate?

I thought the same thing...I've heard exposed aggregate referred to as "washed agg". However, if that's the case, I don't understand the question. How can you match one finish to a completely different finish? Are you simply talking about the height of the slab surface? I just don't get the question.

sorry for the wrong terms, but yes, exposed aggregate is the finish i'd like to do, if that's possible.

Okay, but what do you mean by "matching" it to the broomed part? If it's exposed agg and the other is broomed, it cannot match visually.
You can certainly put one up against another, but they won't "match".
