With their new walkways, Sunset is well prepared to handle the more than 18,000 expected visitors this weekend.

The aptly named Fresh from the West Sunset Celebration Weekend will once again gather food, design and culture lovers in Menlo Park, Calif., and this year Belgard® Hardscapes and expert craftsman Chip Wade will be onsite to educate homeowners and share the latest outdoor living trends.

Attendees of Celebration Weekend on June 2 and 3 can see Belgard throughout the weekend:

  •     Step inside the Belgard Mobile Showroom near the West entrance on the Beer & Wine Garden strip for a tour of the latest and greatest in hardscapes.
  •     Meet and greet with expert craftsman and Belgard spokesman Chip Wade Saturday 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. and 3 – 4 p.m. Get your picture taken with Chip and ask him your outdoor living questions.
  •     Listen to Chip speak about “Creating the ultimate backyard retreat” on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the Garden & Outdoor Living Stage and about “Making the most of your outdoor spaces” on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at the Home Stage.
  •     Enjoy the Ultimate Outdoor Living Room complete with a paver patio by Belgard located on the Northeast side on the premises.

“This is our first year as an official sponsor of Sunset Celebration Weekend and we couldn’t be more excited to jump right in,” said Ken O’Neill, vice president of marketing for Belgard® Hardscapes. “We were able to make our mark on last year’s event with the donation of materials for the new walkways, and we’re glad to be on site to provide invaluable information to homeowners.”

Last year, Sunset Magazine replaced their aged and cracked asphalt pathways that lined their expansive four-acres of corporate gardens with nearly 14,000 square feet of Belgard® Hardscapes paver walkways. The magazine chose to use Belgard's Cambridge Cobble pavers to create their serpentine walkways because of the sturdy quality and classic tailored look that complemented their eclectic gardens.

"Asphalt has a tendency to crack and crumble as it ages due to changes in temperature and moisture, and repairs are often expensive and unsightly," says O'Neill. "However, paver walkways are stronger and more flexible to climate changes, making them more resistant to cracking. With their new walkways, Sunset is well prepared to handle the more than 18,000 expected visitors this weekend."
