Belgard Hardscapes has been at the forefront of the Permeable Paver industry. Environmental stress is increasingly being placed on our resources. As more land is developed, the natural water filtration provided by the soil is continually being diminished. In turn, stormwater runoff – mixed with motor oil, fertilizers, and other contaminants – can pollute lakes, rivers, coastlines, and groundwater.
As part of a bio-aquifer stormwater system, Belgard Environmental permeable pavers can virtually eliminate runoff, potentially removing the need for retention ponds or underground sewer pipes.
Belgard Hardscapes’ concrete pavers and retaining walls will enhance the aesthetics and value of your client's property. With a wide selection of colors, shapes and finishes, these products enhance any architectural style from Craftsman to Contemporary and Mission to Mediterranean.
Belgard Hardscapes’ professional staff is committed to providing the tools and solutions you need to assist with your toughest landscaping challenges. Belgard sets the standard for landscape design ideas and innovation. See for yourself.
