The option of six different colors adds to its versatility, allowing you to easily find products within the line to match with other hardscape elements. Moreover, you have the same combination of color and texture available in the form of the Brussels Dimensional Stone wall units for your retaining wall systems, or other vertical elements. This gives you the added option of being able to contrast colors such as the rich Midnight Charcoal with the lighter Limestone while still retaining the weathered look across the two features. Add in the option of matching coping with Brussels Fullnose and you have a myriad of combinations to play with while still having the authentic weathered stone central theme.

Umbriano paver with Rivercrest Wall
The Rivercrest Wall block is one of the most distinctive designs in our lineup, with its natural stone look and slab like appearance. It works well for low, load bearing retaining walls, giving you a pleasant combination of functionality with style. In contrast to this, Umbriano is a far more modern take on natural granite with its sheer, straight lines. The combination of the modern paver with a traditional natural flagstone style wall creates a contrasting combination that works remarkably well. The diverse color options in Umbriano can take your design a step further, giving you the option of matching Rivercrest Wall with Summer Wheat and Autumn Sunset hues, or contrast it completely with Midnight Sky. With the natural beauty of natural stone throughout your design as our realistic surface technology features prominently, this combination is bound to make your yard stand out.
Thornbury driveway with Pisa2 retaining wall
Thornbury is one of the more understated pavers in our portfolio, featuring a light texturing on its surface. This is also reflected in the five different discrete colors and blends. This makes it ideal for walkways and driveways where you want to create a more conforming look. Pisa2, on the other hand, has a far more distinctive texture with a rough, weathered look and wider spectrum of colors. This variation between texture and colors makes the combination of a Pisa2 retaining wall with a Thornbury walkway or driveway an attractive setup. Moreover, Pisa2’s wider variety of colors gives you the option of contrasting or matching the subtle Thornbury to create either more variation or conformity as per your taste.
