This is the place for all the items that surround your home, whether it be your lawn, your patio, your house or even your garage.

Utility Bricks are often used as an effective edging stone. They are an inexpensive solution to a need for a flat border between a lawn and garden area.

This block is best suited for bordering straight or widely curved areas as opposed to small or tight curves.

Additionally, the available utility block colors match a multitude of other products so a coordinated lanscaping project is very easy to plan.

If you have tight curves in your landscaping plan, our landscaping edging stone is often a better solution.

We manufacture our own splash block and car stops. These types of products are normally precast, but we have figured out how to make them on our block machines.

A simple splash block can eventually save a foundation and a car stop can be a great safety asset. As simple maintenance and precautionary products for every homeowner, they are effective and worthwhile!

Last but not least is our Pocket Block. This block is 8" tall, has an 11" square base and tapers to an 8" square top. There is a 4" square hole in the top of the block, which receives a 4" x 4" wood post.

Using the Pocket Block is the easy way to build a deck. Instead of digging holes, all you have to do is level the ground; and instead of messing with concrete, all you have to do is place your 4" x 4" into the void in the block.
