High above the Valley floor, wind protected by the Santa Rosa Mountains lies Ironwood Country Club. Ackerstone played an extremely important role in making the site elegant and altogether appropriate for all residents. Taking careful consideration with every minute of the process, the Ackerstone team worked diligently to make sure each component was utilized the right way from each shape to every color. With an extensive color selection on their website, (http://www.ackerstone.com/?page=colorsfinishes- california), each customer is giver specific information of the color they are choosing. For example, the application of a layer of fine aggregate, cement and color to the top surface of a concrete paver is called a Face Mix. This process provides rich, vibrant colors, a smoother more refined texture and greater abrasion resistance. The Ironwood Country Club had over 5,000 color options form Ackerstone.

Ackerstone has supplied over 300,000 sq ft in Ironwood CC. We worked with the Hoa to streamline color selection and created 4 color blend that would be used as ” pre approved” colors. This helped homeowners and builders fast track the approval for all projects in ironwood,” said Kevin King, sales representative for Ackerstone. Kevin previously and personally installed all of the driveways while working as a large installer of paving stones in the Ironwood gated golf community.

Kevin knows the property management company and board of directors at Ironwood. “With over 5,000 color options Ackerstone can help a HOA or master community builder create color blends to work with any project. Also, with the volume of work a paver installation company can offer competitive pricing as there is less mobilization involved – being in the community everyday- the ” there goes our paver guy” feeling… Also the feeling of being available to discuss their paver needs.”
