Belgard Hardscapes can be easily installed by a Belgard Authorized Contractor and even by the "do-it-yourselfer." Each specially engineered paver unit is tightly fitted and placed over a base of sand and compacted aggregate base. Once down, it's ready for immediate use.
Belgard sets the standard for residential hardscapes with our extensive collection of quality pavers and walls. Our vast portfolio of styles, shapes, and sizes allows you to transform driveways, outdoor kitchens, pool areas, and patios into captivating living areas you'll be proud to share with friends and family.
THE ISLAND GRILL. The look and feel of an outdoor kitchen depends on your needs and how you'll be using it in the long run. Start by looking at the three common designs of outdoor kitchen grill island: basic square, L-shape, and U-shape center.
USE GOOD COOK "WHERE". Plan your kitchen location carefully. Choose one that's accessible, yet kid-safe and traffic-friendly. Far enough from the house not to pose a fire risk, close enough to guest seating that you're not flipping burgers in solitude.
. Pavers typically provide optimum performance for about 30 years which is much longer than other pavements under normal residential use.
. Ice damage to paver hardscapes is virtually non-existent. Joints allow the pavers to move without cracking in freeze and thaw cycles.
. Unlike other pavements, pavers can be easily removed and reinstated without any visual or functional changes.
. Pavers' surface texture is ideal for obtaining safe traction in pedestrian, vehicular, and pool applications, even when wet.
. The concept of interlocking pavers dates back over 2000 years ago to the Roman Empire. The Romans developed a simple system for building roads, some of the roads are still in use today.
. Paving Stones are set in a friction base sand mixture, thus they do not move around at all, but remain flexible. This flexibility means that with cold and hot weather the expansion and contraction do not in any way create and ill effect on the paving stone installation.
