Making Outdoors Great
Whether it’s a spring walk through the garden, a summer barbecue, or a fall evening around a fire pit—make your outdoor space the place to be.
The Ernest Maier Family can help you with the entire process—product pricing, finding a contractor, or just some technical advice. Decades of experience with hardscapes, patios, walkways, and pool decks mean that we can help you find the right paver, stone, or retaining wall for you.

The Ernest Maier Family carries a suite of products to address the site challenges of erosion, sedimentation, and drainage as well as fabrics, geotextiles, and geomembranes.
