Is this a thing anywhere other than Vancouver?

A friend just mentioned suiting up to go trim her razor tipped holly tree, and it reminded me that when I first moved to Vancouver in 1990, the house we rented had that crushed beer bottle stucco all over it and a holly tree in the front yard. Many long running jokes were made about how dangerous it was to come home after a night of drinking, plus also the beer bottles exacting their revenge. We'd never seen anything as nasty as that stucco before, though it's quite common on post-war houses in East Van, and I've never seen anything like it anywhere else. The deadly material looks like this. My friends call it the kid-grater and woe be unto the child who falls against it. Has anyone ever seen it anywhere outside of the Vancouver/the Lower Mainland? And can anyone tell me anything about the history of it and how anyone could ever have thought it was a good idea? And is it really beer bottles? It really looks like beer bottles.
