High Format Products

Thoms Bros. has been using products from Rosetta Hardscapes for several years with great satisfaction from our installers and our clients.  Their products are well made, look very natural, and make installation much easier and less time consuming compared to natural products……which keep cost down for our clients.  We have used their walls, slabs, steps, fire features and outcropping products for projects such as raised patios, seawalls, and outdoor living spaces. We have gotten to know the Rosetta team very well through trade shows, training programs and jobsite visits.

In the Fall of 2018, my wife and I were invited to attend “Rosetta of Michigan Champions Tour” in Charleviox, Michigan.  This tour was by invite only and included about a dozen contractors scattered from different areas of the Midwest.  We were able to see the plant that the products were made in; see a few local jobsites; learn some more about the family, company and products; and most importantly learn about some new products that were going to be offered for the upcoming 2019 season.

Innovation is in Rosetta’s DNA.  From their humble Northern Michigan beginnings, they have always strived to serve the landscape industry by providing products that are better looking, easier to work with, and more durable than the alternatives. They’re continually driven by the challenge of finding the better way: better aesthetics, better design, and better strength.

At that Fall 2018 meeting, I learned of their new products through their new sister company, HIGH FORMAT™ would be offering.  This company was developing and producing new large-format, ultra-thin and super-durable TEKTRAMAT® products.  TEKTRAMAT® is our proprietary material based around ultra-high-performance concrete technology (UHPC).  And they’ve expanded their offerings to include access to some of the most beautiful and durable natural stone slabs available anywhere.

In the Spring of 2019, we used their Mid-Century slabs on a patio project in Royal Oak.  The massive surface area and ultra-detailed surface textures of Midcentury patio slabs by High Format make for a stunning solution for patio projects. Midcentury paver stones are made in three different dimensions to create sleek geometric patterns, allowing us to leverage clean lines for a modern design.  On this project we used the bluestone color slabs.  It looks just like honed finished bluestone, except for much easier installation (exact same thickness), plus much more durable than natural stone including a salt proof surface.  They also offer Gauge Select.  This is a large format irregular shaped flagstone with a natural cleft surface.  As with the Mid-Century, the colors include Bluestone, Summit (brownish tones), Dune (buff color) and Charcoal.

In the Fall of 2019, we were honored to use their new natural product MARMIRO STONES® TRAVERTINE for a front walkway in Bloomfield, Michigan.   This is a high-quality natural travertine paver provided in a blended French pattern with rustic color tones ranging from light to dark browns, and tans.  This project also included Rosetta’s dimensional steps, natural fond du lac stone on the pillars, and custom Indian Limestone pillar caps.
