Choosing the Right Materials for the Job

- Interlock: style and colour selection is numerous. Great to create a standard patio pattern or one with different banding accents. Good for driveways, patios, pathways & steps, retaining walls, armour stone accents.

- Flagstone: Square cut or random; for beauty and durability natural quarried flagstone can’t be beat. Use for patios, pathways and steps. On occasion it is also used for driveways. Use ledgerock for retaining walls.

As the product choices can be a little overwhelming, I can help guide you through the product choices based on our years of experience working with a vast quantity of different kinds of pavers/landscaping materials.
