Tollgate Elementary, Aurora, CO

ShareThis
With school just around the corner for most of Colorado's kids, some schools are preparing their campuses for students in different ways.  Tollgate Elementary in Aurora is remeditating the outside of the school.  One of them is using Borgert's Aquabric permeable paver in portions of the school to address stormwater run off.  

The Aquabric has a unique joint that is expanded to 1/4 of an inch whereas a standard paver joint is 1/16".  The base and bedding layer are also quite different from standard pavers.  Rather than using a road base and sand, there is gradations of rock that range from large pieces in the 2" range down to 1/4" pieces.  This gradation allows for water to infiltrate through the voids which not only keeps water from pooling on the surface but acts as a filter that can remove some of the pollutants that can be in the water. Because these systems are so versatile, water can either be filtered directly into the ground or it can be directed to other places such as a water harvesting system or even an existing storm drainage system.

Tollgate Elementary is not totally complete yet but should be prior to the start of the school year.

Solterra Pavers

ShareThis
Solterra is a subdivision in the west part of Lakewood off of Morrison Road and we recently have installed pavers out at one of the custom house that was built by our partners at Wall Custom Homes.  

We installed the front steps and a courtyard for the property in Pavestone Venetian 3 Tone Brown in the 4 piece random pattern.  Furthermore, we coordinated the install with Pavestone Retaining wall to tie in all the elements of the outdoor space.  The paver color correlates with the color of the stone facade to create a harmonious color scheme for the entire property.  

If you are looking for an installer and are in the Solterra Neighborhood or any part of Colorado, please contact us for your free estimate.   posted: July 18, 2013

With Summer fast upon us, school is out and you are going to need to keep the kids occupied.  Have you taken them to the Flatirons Mall?  It is undergoing a major transformation in the Village and Rocky Mountain Hardscapes is installing the pavers to match the existing hardscapes.  

Pavestone's City Stone Series of pavers to achieve the main Random Mosic for the major pattern of the pavers while various types of the Holland Stone meander through the pattern creating alternate patterns and pathways to follow.

This is the second phase of work that we have installed at the ever changing facade of the Flatirons Mall and with each change they bring other attractions outside of shopping.  We will be installing through mid July- you can check us out during installation or come see it when it is all done.  

The mall is still open during the construction- just be careful of limitations in driving.

Manitou Springs

ShareThis
Have you ever been to Manitou Springs?  It is a small town west of Colorado Springs with tons of local fair.  

Most recently Rocky Mountain Hardscapes was working on further enhancing the streetscapes down there.  Manitou Springs has utilized a unique color blend in the pavers they have used.  It is a custom blend of green and red to compliment the surrounding mountain environment-- green for the vegetation and red for surrouding soil.  

Rather than utilizing pavers for the entire sidewalk, they have opted to use a paver band set just inside of the curb with a concrete sidewalk next to the pavers.  It is a cost effective way of enhancing your project while maintaining a budget.

Palisades Pools in Gateway Colorado

ShareThis
This week Rocky Mountain Hardscapes has been installing a commerical project up in the beautiful town of Gateway, Colorado  about 53 miles southwest of Grand Junction.  We are working at the Gateway Canyons Resort on 2 projects.  First, is the Palisades Pool project that is being updated with a new paver facade featuring the 8cm Villa Stone.  The multi-piece pattern in conjuction with the surface texture creates a natural look to mimic the beauty of the surrounding landscape.  Flowing through the Villa Stone will be bands of  City Stone and Holland will be featured in other areas of the project to accentuate the Villa Stone and offer a complexity of textures to the project. 

The second area that we will be working on is the correlating parking area that will feature the same stones.  When all the pavers are laid, both projects will encompass just over 20,000 sf.  

If you are in the area and are interested in a quote, please contact us from our website or you can give us a call at 303-477-9277.  We work all over Colorado!
