Patterson's Hardscape

Patterson Hardscape and Supply Company owners Rich and Susan Melendez pose for a photo next to a brand-new Blaze Outdoor Products grill in the business’ showroom in Mount Carmel Township.

MOUNT CARMEL — Rich Melendez had been installing outdoor patio block, pavers and stone for more than 35 years. In 2011, he and his wife Susan purchased the former Patterson’s Block and Ready-Mix, located at Routes 54 and 901 at Locust Summit, just a few miles away from Mount Carmel and Ashland. Together, the two have created a thriving outdoor business that specializes in the sale of hardscape products, which are hard materials and products used to build structures and features that are incorporated into a landscape.

“We believe the main thing that sets us apart from other hardscape businesses is our wealth of experience. My husband, Rich, had been an installer for many decades and offers a unique level of expertise from that perspective. He understands the ins and outs of installation and can advise what products are best suited to correctly finish each project,” said co-owner Susan.
