Two projects that used genuine clay pavers from Pine Hall Brick Company were winners in the recent Hardscape North America (HNA) Hardscape Project Awards competition.
Pine Hall Brick Company, which has showrooms in Greensboro, Madison and Winston-Salem, is headquartered in Winston-Salem and has three plants in Madison.
The winning projects were Artists’ Backyard, a vest pocket park on the N.C. State University campus in Raleigh, which won in the “Clay Brick — Residential/Commercial Permeable” category; and Old Palm Model Home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., which won in the “Clay Brick — Residential” category.
The HNA Hardscape Project Awards recognize outstanding hardscape projects by contractors building residential walkways, patios, driveways, and commercial plazas, parking lots and streets.
Artists’ Backyard includes a plaza and rain garden between two older residence halls at N.C. State using a combination of StormPave permeable pavers by Pine Hall Brick, along with materials recycled from a building demolition.Continue Reading
In the second project, Hasey Construction combined herringbone and running bond patterns in a circle around a planting area at the model house. The natural light tones and reds of the Pine Hall Brick pavers are a complement to the stucco and terra cotta roof overhead.
