Vosters Landscaping Wins VERSA-LOK’s 2007 Design Contest

Vosters Landscaping, Kaukauna, Wis., earned the Grand Prize in VERSA-LOK’s 2007 Design Contest for its hardscaping work on a Wisconsin residence.

According to VERSA-LOK, Scott Van Asten of Vosters Landscaping built everything but the kitchen sink using VERSA-LOK Standard in his winning design for this backyard patio and entertainment area.

Starting with a blank canvas, Van Asten was faced with slopes going two different directions and an egress window on the back of the house that had to remain accessible. In addition, the patio had to be accessible from the garage service door to accommodate a handicapped family member.

“With one product, I was able to construct retaining walls, seat walls, pillars, outdoor kitchen, table and bar bases, and an outdoor fireplace,” Van Asten said. And for his efforts, he has taken home a $5,000 prize.
