The Next Best Thing to Natural Stone

Stone Garden is pleased to present an exciting line of Belgard® pavers, offering an affordable alternative to patterned bluestone or travertine for patios and pathways. 

Our onsite display, installed by Robert James of First Source Property Management, features two styles, Dimensions™ and Origins™.  They emulate the look and feel of natural stone with the convenience of modular sizing. These large pavers with their tight joints provide a level surface ideal for enjoyable outdoor spaces to walk or dine on. 

A curious customer, Aaron, recently visited Stone Garden to see our new Belgard® display.  He rode over the surface of the Origins™ pavers in his wheelchair and was instantly sold.  He even “popped a wheelie” to seal the deal.

He purchased the Origins™ pavers in the color Ash and his son installed them. The even, yet textured finish provides a perfect surface from the driveway to his front deck. A pathway extension smoothly takes him to a side entrance with a ramp.  

We absolutely love the patio, and it was a real treat for my son to build it for me! It has changed my life on a daily basis!” Aaron said.

These versatile 3-part pavers, Dimensions™ and Origins™, are each available in 4 colors to compliment your home.

Dimensions™ colors: 





Chris Natale of Stone Accents installed 12” Dimensions™ in the Savannah color with a charcoal border for a couple in Brunswick Forest. 

Visit the store to experience these large modular pavers for yourself.  Come walk on our new display 18” Dimensions™ style in the Magnolia color.  Take off your shoes and feel the flat, yet textured surface of the next best thing to natural stone.
