Creating an amazing outdoor living space without complications.

Too often, people underestimate what it takes to install a functional, cohesive outdoor vision successfully. People often have an idea but don’t know how to communicate it.

We are here to toss those headaches aside. Whether you plan to install your dream patio yourself (DIY), or have someone else install it for you, our kits will save you time and money. You will also know exactly what to expect from the finished product.

Shipping is FREE in the Contiguous US*. Your order will be shipped as freight via an LTL carrier. Freight is not like standard carriers. Your order will be on pallets that weigh up to 2000 pounds each. A freight carrier will drop them CURBSIDE with a liftgate. Someone will need to be present to accept the shipment.

All shipments must be made on asphalt or concrete. We cannot deliver on gravel.

LTL carriers will deliver CURBSIDE only. The delivery drivers will have a pallet jack for you to move your order. Delivery drivers are not responsible for deliveries past the curb.

All orders are produced in the order they are received. Orders typically leave our yard in 7-10 working days. Once Your order ships, it can take an additional 5-10 working days to get to you.

You will be provided with updates on your order, as well as a tracking number once it ships. When your order lands at the final terminal, you will be contacted by dispatch to arrange a delivery time. Someone must be present for delivery.

If you live on a gravel road, you have a few options. Many customers will arrange delivery to a locally owned business. From there, you can pick up your pallets individually or have them delivered by a local vendor with that capability.

You can also make your delivery to a friend’s house that meets the requirements. You will be responsible for getting your material to your site.

You can always arrange to pick up the delivery at the nearest shipping terminal. There will be a window you must pick up your pallets. After several days, freight yards usually charge storage fees.

Shipping is FREE in the Contiguous US*

*In rare instances, free shipping is not available. There are a few remote places in the contiguous US that cannot accept direct shipment (Non-Direct Shipments). These are remote locations that are not near any shipping terminals. These locations require an extra third-party shipper to reach their destination. Therefore, we reserve the right to refuse free shipping to these destinations. You can elect to pay the additional expense of the third-party shipment or arrange pick-up of your materials at the nearest terminal. You probably know if you live in one of these locations, but we will inform you if your address fits in this category. We will not charge you without your consent.

Kits do not come with a warranty. I don’t want to alarm you.  We don’t sell a finished product. We only sell the materials and plans to build your kit. Though easy to build, people can modify the kit and could potentially build it in any number of ways that we cannot warranty. The materials are guaranteed to be complete and free from defects. Moreover, they are high-quality materials.  Built properly and well-maintained, your kit will last for years.

Free shipping means shipping is included in the price. The cost of shipping freight is high. You may be able to return your order within 14 days of delivery. If you choose to do this, you will be responsible for paying for return shipping plus a 20% restocking fee.  You will often get back less than half of your purchase price.

We do not want anyone to lose money on a purchase. Please be certain of your decision before shipping tons of material nationwide. There are all kinds of information available on this site. Contact us if you still have questions or can’t find what you are looking for. We will answer any questions you have.

You can cancel your order before shipment for a full refund. Special orders may incur cancellation fees.

Refunds will not be issued for order refusal due to the delivery method.

We do not inflate prices so we can offer discounts- not even for Black Friday. 

Planning for and constructing a large hardscape feature such as a fireplace is no small decision. We want you to plan accordingly. You will not be penalized for ordering your materials when it fits your schedule.

The lowest price is always the one currently available. We do not want you to be upset that we run a discount or promotion after you purchase your kits. We would not cheat anyone that way.

Military Discounts:

Thank you for your service. We believe in freedom and equality for all. Therefore, we do not offer any special discounts for military, first-responders, police, or firefighters.
