    I was wondering if there is a difference in quality of Holland pavers from menards, or if you get them at a local landscape company. The price at a local Landscape Company Garden store is 50 cents a block and the price at Menards is 32 cents a block. I was wondering if there is a difference in quality, or if menards can just charge less since the sell in such large quanites.

    Last year we took a Menards paver and one of ours and compared. Exact same dimensions, but ours weighed four ounces more. Guess which one will take on more moisture and deteriorate sooner.

    It depends on the store.

    Our brick/block supplier also supplies most of the Menards in central Indiana. If Menards is running a sale, he'll send us there rather than getting stuff from him since it's cheaper for us.

    If you know that the "Holland" pavers at Menards are made by Belgard, then chances are that they are the same. If you don't know the manufacturer, then it's hard to tell.............
