Willow Creek Paving Stones has introduced “Dekrastone” pavers, a classic but contemporary style with a smooth, flat surface and rounded edge.
Dekrastone pavers are 5 inches by 9 inches and 7 centimeters thick. Willow Creek Paving Stones says they’re engineered to meet the highest performance standards and aesthetic demands of contractors and landscape architects.
Dekrastone concrete pavers can be used for patios, walkways and driveways, among other applications, and come in six colors, which Willow Creek calls “Black, Bleu, Brik, Crème, Mocha and Patina.”
Contrasting Dekrastone colors can serve as edging in a patio or other hardscape project, and Willow Creek is quick to point out that its latest paver also works well with the company’s “Slatestone” and “Eurostone” products.
The company says Dekrastone pavers are suitable for both standard and permeable applications. Permeable applications are ideal for municipalities with residential and commercial impervious footprint limits, Willow Creek Paving Stones says, and are a best practice in stormwater management, reducing runoff while allowing rainwater to naturally infiltrate into the ground.
Minnesota-made Willow Creek Paving Stones are suited to the harsh freeze-thaw cycles of the Midwestern climate, the family-owned manufacturer says. For more information, visit the company’s website here.
