It was less-than-ideal conditions this past Wednesday as we got our skid steer operators together to update their training--but a little bit of snow never hurt anyone!
We're getting geared up to head back to Gardenscape 2016!
Gardenscape is promoted by the Saskatchewan Blue Cross and is dubbed "The Backyard Lifestyle Show." This year it's taking place April 8-10 at Prairieland Park. We've come up with a fun design for our booth, and we can't wait to unveil it! Hope to see you there!
Another exciting update: we've also been nominated for some awards by the North Saskatoon Business Association (NSBA). We're finalists in two categories for their Business Builder Awards:
-Employee Retention and Development Award
-Team Building Award
Wish us luck, and see you at Gardenscape!
In March of 2015 the 18th Annual NSBA Business Builder Awards took place at Prairieland Park. Keystone Paving was nominated for the Employee Retention and Development Award as well as for the Team Building Award. We were fortunate to have won the award for Team Building!
It is greatly appreciated to be recognized by business peers as a company operating at a high standard, worthy of being nominated for developing a corporate culture that we're proud of!
If you're looking to repair your driveway, put a patio in your backyard or replace that gravel walkway beside your house, why should you choose paving stones over concrete or any other paving product? Here are just a few reasons why paving stones are a superior choice!
1. Concrete pavers provide a beautiful look to any home with a great variety of colours, patterns, shapes and sizes.
2. Low maintenance! Repairs are inexpensive and easy. No patching required!
3. Very durable for Saskatchewan winters. Pavers are stronger than stamped concrete and the joints allow for movement during freeze and thaw cycles.
4. Return on investment is very high! Paving stone patios and driveways can add between 7-12% to the value of your home.
This comparison from our licensing body, the ICPI, shows a look at the pros and cons of many different kinds of paving materials. Click on the following images to see a larger view. We hope that you will choose a sound investment this year and choose Keystone Paving to install concrete paving stones for your home!
With spring soon on its way, we would love to show off our work throughout the season and one of the best ways to do that is through a blog! Check back here regularly for updates on projects as well as ideas for your own yard. We look forward to partnering with you to become Saskatoon's premier landscaping and paving stone company!
