FEATURES

Beauty That Endures
The Brick Industry Association joins us to examine the solid foundations and beautiful hardscapes resulting from the paver industry, including proper installation techniques, common challenges and overall progress and growth of the industry.

Tools for the Hardscaping Season
The assortment of hardscaping tools and equipment is often diverse and always necessary to the masons who use them. Masonry looks at the basic designs of these tools and equipment, as well as consult some of the industry’s manufacturers about their newest products and technologies.

Case-by-Case
Learn from others’ experiences as we study hardscaping projects from start to finish in four hardscaping case studies. Best practices are shared, as topics like overcoming challenges, planning and scheduling, technique and method, and products are discussed.

A Certified Difference in Masonry Training
Quality masonry craftsmanship doesn’t just happen. It comes from rigorous training. For union masonry, high training standards are upheld through the industry’s only trainer program, the Instructor Certification Program of the International Masonry Institute. You can learn more in this overview.
