Stone and Brick Driveways

Sub Stone Contracting highly recommends the use of brick or concrete paving stones for your driveways, walkways, patios, and courtyards. Our professional and experienced team of installers have all the knowledge and expertise to install a finished driveway that will be the envy of your neighborhood.

Paving stones, also called pavers or interlocking stones, are a great way to add flare to your outdoor space. Due to their versatility in size, shape, and color, paving stones can be laid in a variety of patterns that allow you to create almost any shape or design. They come in a range of materials including concrete, clay brick, cobblestone, or natural stone.

Interlocking stone surfaces have tremendous curb appeal and real intrinsic value. In harsh climates, paving stones are more durable than either asphalt or concrete. And you don’t have to worry about future resurfacing costs.

Pavements of interlocking stones are flexible, stable, and clean looking. They can shift with changes in the earth due to subsidence or tree root growth and, because of their flexibility, they are not prone to cracking like solid concrete or asphalt driveways.

Create an elegant and decorative front yard landscape by adding a paving stone driveway or sidewalk. And for the back yard, add brick or stone patios and cobblestone garden paths.

Retaining Walls

Sub Stone Contracting is a certified Allan Block retaining wall installer with decades of experience. Our wide variety of retaining wall products come in many assorted styles, colors, and textures to fit with your ideal landscape or landscape designs. We will be happy to show you a range of options.

Retaining walls can be used on either flat ground for structural purposes or sloping ground to function as terrace walls and are a popular choice for homes built on hills or sloping property.

Landscape blocks are also used to build planter areas, patio walls, freestanding stone fences, and even fire pits and outdoor fireplaces.

Allan Block walls are mortarless systems of interlocking blocks that are durable, stable, and attractive. Whether it’s a low patio wall, a garden wall, or a tall landscape wall, we build them all.

Sub Stone Contracting builds impressive and fashionable retaining walls using a variety of shapes and colors. Allan Block landscape walls are the perfect blend of performance and style, creating a beautiful, smooth, and fluid finish with maximum durability. 

One of the unique benefits of an Allan Block wall is the number of options available for ending and stepping down retaining walls. You can turn the ends of the wall into the hillside with smooth flowing curves, or create corners, or construct simple down-steps. No other wall system gives you as many choices for a beautiful finish.

When selecting the right wall for your outdoor landscape, it’s important to know what type of block and construction method you need. Let us help you decide on the right choice for your property.
