Oldcastle Integrates Products Into Yardzen’s Outdoor Design Platform

Oldcastle APG has acquired Yardzen, a technology-enabled landscape design and build platform. The integration of Oldcastle APG’s signature products into Yardzen’s custom design platform will provide contractors access to a full suite of high-quality and durable materials for creating beautiful and functional outdoor spaces. 

Signature Oldcastle products that will be integrated into the Yardzen platform include Belgard hardscapes, wall systems and fire pits; Barrette Outdoor Living’s fencing and pergolas, and PebbleTec pool finishes.

“Given our shared passion for creating amazing outdoor living spaces, our partnership with Yardzen presents new and exciting opportunities to best serve our customers,” said Tim Ortman, president, Oldcastle APG. “Our portfolio of outdoor living solutions will supply a broad range of options for creating personalized designs that deliver form, style and function. We look forward to working with Yardzen on this new, innovative approach to bringing people’s visions for their outdoor spaces to life.”

Yardzen is an innovative online landscape design and build platform that uses technology including satellite imagery, 3D rendering software, and the technology on modern mobile devices. Without visiting a property, the company’s platform creates a custom design that factors in the homeowner’s aesthetic preferences and style; the unique characteristics of their property and the plants and building materials that will thrive.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Oldcastle APG and its portfolio of world-class building materials brands,” said Allison Messner, CEO of Yardzen. “As homeowners increasingly have a strong point of view about the specific materials and design decisions that will enable them to achieve the form and function they desire for their outdoor spaces, the partnership with Oldcastle APG empowers Yardzen to smartly introduce our clients and contractor partners to the best materials available.” 

Yardzen connects homeowners with vetted landscape designers. Yardzen’s team then connects homeowners to local, vetted contractors, ensuring a timely and highly communicative bidding and installation process that homeowners trust. For more information, visit oldcastleapg.com and yardzen.com.
