A new product came on the market in 2007 which is transforming the landscape industry. It’s called Rosetta Stone©, an architectural-grade precast concrete system that utilizes the textures and colors of natural stone, giving projects the look and feel of nature. With its interlocking system and uniformity, the product is faster and easier to install than natural stone, so installation costs less.
It could not have come at a better time because everyone wants to create an outdoor living space.
This product is great to work with because the uniform size of the components makes installation easier and more predictable than when using natural stone product.
Kim Boruszewski, a landscape designer at Smith Tree and Landscape, says her clients are thrilled with the results. “We’ve designed walkways, retaining walls, patios and stairways. Not only are my clients thrilled with the natural look of the product, they appreciate the fact that it costs less than natural stone.
Our landscape designers are using the product in a variety of projects, including retaining walls, stairways, walkways, and water features.
Here is information on each of the product lines:
- Walls: Rosetta Stone manufactures decorative retaining walls in a variety of styles, all mimicking natural stone. The molds for the block system are taken from weathered natural stone, created in different shapes and heights, giving walls a random look, but keeping the design and installation easy.
- Steps and Patio Slaps: Whether you like free-flowing steps and walkways, or a more formal look, there are Rosetta Stone products that will give you the look you desire. The Rosetta Flagstone slabs have consistent heights, making them easy to install, yet maintaining their natural looking pattern.
- Fire Pits: With natural colors and textures, a wonderful fire pit can be created using Rosetta products.
