1) Belgard® U Start Base Block™
One of Belgard’s newest innovations, U Start Base Block™ is a universal base course for walls that promotes cost savings and installation time efficiency. With built-in hand-holds for easy installation, U Start provides a sturdy base level for curves, 90-degree corners, columns or straight walls.

2) Belgard® Lafitt® Slabs
With a thinner profile than standard concrete pavers, Lafitt® Rustic Slab and Lafitt® Grana Slab feature large scale units and a modular shape that together provide streamlined installation. These slabs also offer overlay opportunities, which means the possibility of not having to remove existing concrete.

3) Techniseal® EZ Base and DriBond™
A revolutionary new way to install interlocking pavers, Techniseal® EZ Base is a system of high-density foam panels that replace the need for a traditional compacted aggregate layer base system, which can save up to 8 inches of excavation. For thin paver overlays, Techniseal® Dribond™ is an advanced mudset that installs like sand and sets like cement to help eliminate the need to remove existing concrete.

4) Belgard® Fire Pit Kits
Belgard fire pit kits offer a quick and easy way to create the look of a custom hardscape fire pit in a fraction of the time. Options include the smooth, tumbled stone look of the Weston Fire Pit Kit and the rough-hewn, rustic look of the Countryside Fire Pit Kit.

A true innovation in polymeric sand, Techniseal® NextGel™ eliminates both the dust and haze of traditional polymeric sands and offers 50% faster wetting and 40% faster installation.

6) Belgard® Tandem® Column Kits
Installing an accent column for an outdoor living installation is truly a snap with the Tandem® Column Kit. Simply attach the Tandem® veneers to the column grid to quickly and easily create a new column or wrap an existing post.
