Q: Do you design?
A: No, we do not design, but if you come in with an idea of what you would like, we can show you what product might work best for your project.
Q: What information is needed to figure how much product is needed for a retaining wall, pavers, or ground coverage?
A: For a retaining wall, we need to know how many linear feet you would like it to go and also how high you want it. After you pick out a retaining wall block, we will be able to tell you how much you will need to complete your project. More information given in Formulas & Calculations.
A: For pavers, we will need to know the area of the place you're putting pavers in. Usually length x width will get you a close estimate of how much product you will need. More information given in Formulas & Calculations.
A: For ground coverage, we will need to know the area (length x width) and also how deep you would like the product to cover the area. More information given in Formulas & Calculations.
Q: What makes Keystone and Borgert products better than the competing off brand?
A: Keystone and Borgert products are designed with a more dense construction than other types of precast landscaping block. When pavers and retaining wall block do not have a very dense formula, water is able to soak into the product. When cold temperatures come and the water freezes, the product is more prone to crack and break. Products like Borgert's pavers are designed to let the water bead off the surface instead of absorb it, keeping your landscaping looking as new as it did the day you finished.
