Italian term or phrase: superficie seminata
This is from a technical specification for cement floors:

"Il pavimento in battuto di cemento a *superficie seminata* o a ghiaino lavato, è costituito da uno strato dello spessore di almeno 4 cm costituito da sabbia, ghiaietto di pezzatura 5-10 mm e cemento dosato a 500 kg per mc di impasto, con successiva lavatura con acqua in pressione fino a far rimanere in vista il solo ghiaietto. Con il medesimo impasto e tecnica possono essere pure rivestite alzate e pedate di gradini esterni."

Thank you for all suggestions
