Rosetta Hardscapes recognizes licensees’ project vision, execution

During the Hardscapes of North America event in Louisville, Rosetta Hardscapes presented four hardscape unit manufacturers licensed by the company with its annual Rosetta Project Awards. Out of the more than 50 entries that were submitted for the program, projects from Midland Concrete Products, Oberfields, Brown’s Concrete Products, and R.I. Lampus Co. were recognized for their outstanding work in Paver and Slab, Retaining Wall, Commercial, and Residential applications, respectively.

Paver and Slab

Midland Concrete Products of Iowa transformed a residential pool area into a usable patio space with 2,450 square feet of Rosetta paver Dimensional Flagstone as well as 216 square feet of Rosetta Belvedere, a small retaining block that mimics weathered stone. The project maximized the even surfaced practicality of the Rosetta materials and the combination of products worked around the challenges of a pool trimmed with landscaped flower beds.

Commercial Application


ntario-based Brown’s Concrete Products created a memorable company entrance for their client Citi Gate by using Rosetta Outcropping to mimic a large rock outcropping coming up through the earth. The project totaled 1,202 square feet and used 309 Outcropping blocks.

Retaining Walls


Oberfields LLC of Delaware, Ohio, was awarded for its clever use of 800 square feet of retaining blocks to transform a steep, unusable front yard into an aesthetically pleasing functional space. The company used the Kodah line—large retaining blocks imitating snapped limestone—to create terraces at the various abrupt slopes.

Residential Application


R.I. Lampus Co. of Springdale, Pa., delivered on a tricky residential project that required an 18-ft. high Rosetta Outcropping wall to support the earth around a tall RV garage. Small block Belvedere embellishments were used for a bridge leading into a driveway. The project required 3,150 square feet of Outcropping.
