This backyard patio features the contemporary styling of the large format Metro Stone paver in the Sonoma Blend. The Sonoma Blend offered a vibrant mix of red, tan, and charcoal colors that complemented the already existing brick wall. In order to access the patio from the back of the house, steps had to be constructed utilizing the MaytRx Wall Stone in a matching Sonoma Blend.

This featured project is a backyard walkway installation that we completed in Lafayette. Prior to construction there was only a dirt walkway and some wood steps connecting the deck to a gate at the rear of the property. The Carriage Stone paver in the Tahoe Blend was used for the walkway. With the path sloping downward and being on a hill, retaining wall on both sides of the pavers was necessary for stability. For that purpose, the Keystone Stonegate Country Manor in the Yosemite Blend was selected. The Yosemite blend features a mix of tans, blues, and reds offering a complement to the blue and gray tones of the Tahoe Blend. Browse the gallery below to see pictures before and after construction.
We would like to highlight a project that was completed in the East Bay suburb of Moraga. The Project included a walkway and seating area in the front yard along with a retaining wall, firepit, seating area, pergola, and patio in the backyard. The homeowner selected the Tahoe Blend which features a mix of gray, tan, and charcoal.
The MaytRx wall was also used to build a firepit and a shorter seating wall. A Pergola was installed above the patio.
A walkway was built in the front yard with the Century Stone Tahoe Blend
The Metro Stone in the Tahoe Blend was used as a cap for an already existing wall in the front yard creating a sitting area and tying the wall to the walkway.

We would like to highlight a backyard and side yard renovation that we recently completed in San Jose. The Project consisted of removing and replacing a concrete walkway and patio and a wood deck with concrete pavers. The homeowners selected the Carriage Stone paver in the Sonoma Blend.
A new walkway was installed along the side yard which is the access point from the front of the house to the main entrance and the backyard.
A new concrete paver patio was put in giving the homeowners a comfortable outdoor living space to enjoy the neighboring golf course. Steps had to be built at each door because the former wood deck was at a higher elevation.
A firepit and seating wall were constructed at one end of the patio. The MaytRx Wall Stone, offered in a matching Sonoma Blend, was selected to give the project a consistent appearance.
Cobble Stone-Its rustic and authentic cobbled look creates a classic European appeal. Rich colors and multiple shapes and patterns complement any space and provide the versatility to create dynamic designs that are distinctly yours. The durability of our pavers makes them virtually maintenance free.
The Colosseum Plank Paver combines the beauty of a travertine finish and the durability of a concrete paver. Its unique size allows for creative patterns that will make any project stand out. Many of the designs are inspired by hardwood flooring which features similarly shaped planks, just a different material. While there are a number of possible patterns to choose from, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites:
Running Bond: The running bond features planks installed parallel to each other with the end of each paver lined up with the center of the paver on either side of it. The creates a staggered but simple look that is easy to install.
Herringbone: In the herringbone pattern (pictured) the pavers are laid in a diagonal zigzag. This is the most complex pattern but it also provides the most stability because the planks are pushing against each other.
Basket weave: The basket weave is a repeating geometric pattern that results in a checkerboard appearance. Three planks laid next to each other create a perfect square with each set of planks turned 90 degrees so that the short ends touch the long end of the neighboring square.
