I was at Landscape Ontario's Congress in Jan. Congress is Canada's largest green industry event for landscape professionals - architects, contractors, designers, and allied trades. After attending a good talk from Charles VanderKooi I walked the show floor before heading over to the Unilock booth to see what was new. Unilock actually had 3 booths this year. One main feature and two smaller ones. In the main booth, there it was. Umbriano, Summer Wheat. A new colour introduction for 2011. And I must say I like this colour. I don't think these pictures do it justice. You really have to see the stone in person to get a real appreciation of how nice this paving stone colour is.
Unilock also had Umbriano, Summer Wheat, at their Canada Blooms 2011 booth. It's the colorfusion particles that really give Umbriano that granite look. The more I look at this stone the more I love it. The subtle blending is fantastic and this should do very well for Unilock this season.
Don't forget about Umbriano's other colours. WInter Marvel, Midnight Sky and Autumn Sunset for your patio, walkway or driveway. Summer wheat is a fantastic addition to the Umbriano lineup and is a personal favorite of this author.
