Summer is here, but there’s still time to install the patio of your dreams.

Concrete pavers, natural stone, retaining walls, permeable pavers — which materials are right for your project?
The professionals at Patio Town can answer your questions, help you plan your project, and show you how to install patios and retaining walls at our free Saturday seminars — or offer complete design and installation services through our design-and-build group, Villa Landscapes.

If hardscaping seems like a new world to you, here are some general terms to know:

Segmental retaining walls – Segmental retaining walls are used without mortar and rely on weight for stability, making them easy to install yourself with the right know-how. Patio Town carries VERSA-LOK® retaining wall systems, which give you unlimited design freedom. With a Standard unit, you can create columns, curves, corners and steps plus freestanding and retaining walls without the need for special units. Numerous colors and weathered texture options add versatility in design.

Plantable wall blocks – One of the newest trends is the plantable wall. A plantable core in a retaining wall block gives you the ability to create “green” or “living” walls. Patio Town carries VERSA-Green plantable walls that give a retaining wall the lush beauty of a hanging garden. 

Concrete pavers – More durable and affordable than bricks, which are made of clay, concrete pavers come in a variety of shapes and colors. Pavers are used in patios, driveways, walkways, as accents set in and around poured concrete and more. Patio Town carries shapes such as Brickstone, Cobblestone, Circlestone and Slatestone with some in weathered textures and all in a variety of colors.

Permeable pavers – Stormwater control is a growing concern, and permeable pavers are a great solution. They allow rainwater to naturally trickle down into the ground. You won’t have standing water, and rainwater won’t be diverted to stormwater drains and end up in a river or elsewhere. Watershed districts and municipalities may offer grants or loans to property owners for projects that meet certain requirements for improving water quality, including permeable pavers.

Flagstone and other natural stone – Flagstone typically refers to quarried stone like limestone, basalt or granite that is used for pathways, stepping stones, steps and as landscape features. River rock can be used as decorative ground cover surrounding shrubbery. Boulders are typically used for walls or as a design focus. Pea gravel is used for a base for patios and walkways or drainage projects. Crushed gravel is used as a base rock, filler or a top coat for driveways and walkways.

Whatever hardscapes you select for your project, it’s going to add appeal to your home and provide lasting beauty and functionality to your outdoors!

Rock on!  With Patio Town.

Patio Town carries more than 35 types of wall stone, flagstone, boulders and decorative rock in a variety of colors and sizes plus gravel (pea and Class 5), crushed rock and riprap. Decorative rock is considered ¾" to 3" diameter. Boulders are typically 6" – 12" diameter. You can use our handy estimating guide to see how much rock you'll need for your project.

Wall Stone & Flagstone
Wall Stone is typically 8" wide, while rock edging is typically 4" wide and is used for natural rock walls and edging around gardens, plantings and trees. Flagstone is natural rock typically used for steppers, paving stones, accents, pond borders, water features, planters, edging and other landscaping features. With a natural non-skid surface, flagstone is perfect for walkways, sidewalks, paths and trails. Irregular-shaped flagstone works well as stepping stones and accents, while cut natural stone is used for patios and as column caps.

Large or small, landscape boulders are found naturally as fieldstone or in river beds and are quarried from below ground. Boulders can help you create landscaped water features such as artificial ponds and other interesting accents plus walls and borders. Combine large and small boulders with a flagstone path for a walkway that looks like a dry stream bed. River jacks are flatter boulders that can be used as decorative accents and borders. Artificial boulders, with a hollow center, are perfect for covering well heads and other yard obstacles.

Decorative Rock
Decorative rock is a maintenance-free ground cover or rock mulch used for planting beds, gardens, borders, decorative accents and other areas in your yard. It also helps to retain moisture and prevent weeds, like natural mulch. Size typically runs from ¾" up to 3" diameter. Typically you'll want rock ground cover to be double the diameter of the rock, covering an area with a layer 3" to 6" thick.

Stepping Stones & Stairs
Paths, stairs, landings and walkways can be created with natural stone, flagstone, exposed aggregate patio blocks and pre-cast concrete blocks. Natural stone steps are a stunning solution for stairs within your yard. They also work well within other hardscapes, such as leading up to a patio.

For more info, watch Andrew Swartwood from our Brooklyn Park/Maple Grove store talk more about natural stone on YouTube.

If you had a disappointing experience at one of our stores, please talk with the store manager. We work hard to meet and exceed customer expectations, but if we fall short we want to know in what way.
