Pavers Everywhere! For thousands of years pavers have been used to create cobblestone roadways and paths. Today pavers come in dozens of colors and shapes that can add not only beauty but durability and ease of maintenance to your landscaping project.
Today’s pavers are descendants of a Canadian process started about 65 years ago, this process creates strong and durable pavers out of concrete that interlock with each other to form a truly beautiful presentation for your home.
At PRO Landscape Supply we have created a Garden of Pavers for you to walk through and see many the many styles, colors and shapes that we have available. There is plenty of parking next to our Garden of Pavers. Please drop by and see examples of paver design that might help you decide on where you want to go with your next project using pavers.
