A beautiful, long-lasting addition to any home, pavers provide you with an attractive outdoor living environment improvement. With a wide selection of standard and specialized pavers, Green Brothers Earth Works provides you with the best quality of pavers to add both charm and style to your home.
Typically available in natural colors and styles, pavers come in three main types of landscape materials: 1) stone pavers; 2) concrete pavers; and 3) brick pavers. While all are attractive, these three materials have their own pros and cons when it comes to design, cost, installation procedure, technical standards, and application.
Stone Pavers Alpharetta GA
Stone pavers are formed by natural forces and are obtained by either mining at a natural stone deposit (a quarry) or collected from a rock outcrop. Stone pavers are not manufactured or man-made, but are a purely naturally-formed landscape material.
Concrete and brick pavers are manufactured by a technical procedure that involves the combining of raw materials and firing those materials at extreme temperatures at an industrial plant.
Marietta Brick Pavers
Installing an attractive, paved flooring or walkway with pavers is simple. They can be easily placed on a dry, sand bed and arranged to create a beautiful addition to the aesthetics of your outdoor living environments. And, the advantage of laying pavers is that since they are dry-laid, you can easily adjust them if you make a mistake in arranging them. Pavers can be set into place by sweeping sand between the pavers to hold them in place and prevent shifting. You can also cement or mortar pavers into place, but this proves to be a bit more difficult than using the sweeping method.
Green Brothers Earth Works carries a variety of brand name pavers. Visit or contact one of our four Atlanta Pavers locations for the purchase of your landscaping pavers for your next paver project.

Instructions: Scalp the grass first. Fill in low areas up to ½”. Do not cover sod completely, leave a little stubble showing. After all spots have been filled, then you are ready to cover your whole yard. Make sure you level the sod dressing after it rains heavily or the sod dressing is disturbed.

Atlanta Sod Supplier
Warm weather conjures up visions of long lazy days, spent outdoors enjoying the beauty of lush, green grass in your fabulous outdoor living environment. Here in Metro Atlanta, laying the correct variety of sod will assure that you have an opportunity to make your outdoor dream yard a reality. But, before you grade your yard for that new lawn, make sure you have all the facts about sod that will thrive here and sod that won’t.
Grasses that do well in the Atlanta area include Fescue, Bermuda, and Zoysia. Each has its own individual advantages and disadvantages as well as different looks and different maintenance requirements. Opting for the right landscape materials for the right area of the country is the first step in obtaining that look you want from your landscaping.
Fescue sod is a great choice if you want green grass all year round. Performing best with some afternoon shade, fescue will remain healthy in appearance in full sun if you water often and have a good drainage system for those rainy Georgia moments. While not as tolerant of the Atlanta weather as Bermuda, Fescue is a good choice here. Do keep in mind that since it is green all year round, it will require all year round maintenance.
Bermuda Sod Alpharetta GA
Bermuda is a good choice for sunny hot terrain areas, and performs poorly in shade. A green, dense, high-maintenance sod, Bermuda is found in many metro Atlanta golf courses, is a popular choice for many Atlanta homeowners, is used in high-traffic and play areas as well. Bermuda grass can thrive in poor clay soil, but performs best in sandy clay or soils. Irrigation isn’t necessary; however, it will enhance the performance and appearance of Bermuda sod during dry spells.
Zoysia Sod Marietta
Meyer Zoysia, a creeping, slow growing, warm weather sod, produces a rich green color when properly maintained. Meyer Zoysia forms a dense turf that limits weed encroachment and thrives in locations with full sun to partial shade. Its lush appearance and adaptability characteristics make Meyer Zoysia an excellent sod for residential, commercial, and golf course lawns in the Metro Atlanta area.
Green Brothers Earth Works sells some of the best in Fescue, Bermuda, and Meyer Zoysia sod landscape materials. Contact our Atlanta Sod Supplier first when you need sod.
We proudly provide sod delivery to the following cities and surrounding areas:

Atlanta Stacked Stone Supplier
Stacked stones, used for walls, table tops, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor benches, and outdoor fire pits are a glamorous addition to any outdoor living environment. Historically used in the construction of retaining walls, stacked stone is an attractive, timeless landscaping material for the creation of a beautiful and functional outdoor living and entertainment area.
Many landscape designers will use large landscape boulders as the focal point of a lawn, garden, pool landscaping or other landscape project. At Green Brothers Earth Works, you can find large landscape boulders that will make a great addition to your landscaping project.
Alpharetta GA Stacked Stone Product
Structures built from stacked stone are usually built against a berm or slight hill area. These structures are constructed without mortar, making them a landscaping addition that naturally drains moisture from soil and shifts to accommodate the ground when it freezes. Providing a historic look, stacked stone is a popular construction material for landscaping.
Most stacked stone structures more than three feet high are a bit unstable and must be supported by some form of concrete footing. Some modern stacked stone structures are reinforced with steel rods, concrete rods or wire baskets filled with rocks to ensure that they don’t overturn or slide, causing a risk of personal injury or property damage.
Stacked stones come in a variety of looks. Cut field stone, granite and other rocks are typically used for a uniform, even look. For a more natural look, you can use stones that are uncut but are somewhat flat and angular.
Care must be taken when planning the installation of a stacked stone outdoor structure as their stability depends on the weight and mass of the stones that you build your outdoor structure with. To be on the safe side, you want to use stacked stone in a dry location with a good drainage system in place to assure that groundwater doesn’t exert enough earth pressure to topple your wall.
When built properly, stacked stone is a beautiful, long-lasting landscaping material. Contact our Atlanta Stacked Stone Supplier at Green Brothers Earth Works for expert advice on building your stacked-stone structure and to purchase the best stacked stone product available in the Atlanta Metro area.

Gravel, pebbles, and rocks offer an alternative to traditional mulch to create a different landscaping look. With many of the same advantages as mulch materials, these inorganic mulch materials prove to be decorative and useful landscaping materials to create a personalized landscaping statement.

Atlanta Flower Mix Soil
When Purchasing topsoil you have to know what region you are in. Georgia has a clay-based topsoil. Sure it is great and has its place, but it may not be the best for your situation.
If you are purchasing soil for your garden, we recommend our flower mix soil. Our flower mix soil can be used up to 6” deep or mixed into your existing soil. When applying deeper than 6 inches we recommend using the landscaper’s mix. The landscaper’s mix contains 50% Georgia topsoil and 50% flower mix. This will prevent the soil from settling. Applying compost at one foot deep will only result in approximately 8 inches the following year due to Settling.
Compost has no nutrient value. Applying granite sand and earth food changes the nutrient value and taking this approach is how we create our flower mix.
Nothing adds more beauty and aesthetic appeal to any landscaping project than beds of lovely, healthy, well-maintained flowers. And, avid gardeners will tell you that one of their greatest pleasures is watching their gardens transform from seeds into luscious fruit, wholesome vegetables, and vibrant flowers. Starting with just the right landscape materials will get even a novice gardener off to a great-looking flower bed or vegetable garden creation.
Green Brothers Earth Works flower mix is just the flower mix you need for the beginning of a car-stopping flower bed or garden. Our quality, result-producing flower mix is your landscape material for flower beds, perennial gardens, tree plantings, shrub planting, and lawn planting or refurbishing.
Alpharetta GA Flower Mix
To prepare your flower bed or perennial bed for planting, you should first roto-till the soil to a depth of two to four inches. Next, deposit two to four inches of Green Brothers Flower Mix on top of the roto-tilled soil and continue mixing the flower mix with the original soil. Then, you are ready to plant.
You can also place our specially-prepared flower mix on top of existing soil, up to a depth of six inches deep for planting flowers, perennial garden plants and vegetables directly into the soil. Due to the settling property of flower mix, you shouldn’t use it deeper than six inches as it is ineffective at that point.
For trees and shrubs, use a combination of 50 percent existing soil with 50 percent flower mix. Our Green Brothers Flower Mix, developed by James Hulen in 1964, known for his famous rose garden, contains thirteen different micro nutrients, so you can be assured that it is the best available in the Atlanta Metro area. Ask the Atlanta Rose Society whose soil they prefer.
Next time you have planting to do, remember to contact our Atlanta Flower Mix Soil Company to purchase some of our amazing, satisfaction-guaranteed flower mix.

Atlanta Bio Mix Soil
The purpose of a bio mix is to have the microorganisms eat an oil before it returns to our streams. With the proper mix of 60% river sand, 30% compost, and 10% topsoil, this can be achieved.
Remember the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? The contractors that were in charge of containing the oil spill sprayed organisms onto the oil spill and the organisms ate the oil. Our bio mix soil uses the same principles and the same technology.
Using our bio mix soil in and around your retention ponds is an excellent idea as the right soil will help eliminate some oils that can be found in most retention ponds . Retention ponds are an important part of our communities and neighborhoods. Green Brothers Earth Works is the leading Atlanta provider of Bio Mix soil for retention ponds in the greater Atlanta area.
Alpharetta Rentention Pond Soil
Bio Mix Soil replaces the empty retention ponds seen in neighborhoods and commercial sights. The original of retention ponds was to slow down the water being released into streams during heavy rains. We now realize that the oils and other contaminants coming off the asphalt in parking lots can be filtered and cleaned with bio mix retention ponds.
Georgia Bio Mix Soil Provider
Bio Mix Soil is the natural filter for our contaminants. Green Brothers is the leader in mixing bio mixes for retention ponds in the Atlanta market and surrounding areas. We do all types of special blends.
