Breaking news: Garage beats out Deck, Patio to take 2nd place this season!

Some things in our daily lives get little respect and appreciation. We often take for granted daily blessings when we get used to them: Electricity, a hot shower, air in our vehicle’s tires when it’s time to drive, nice weather, wifi hot spots, safe roads, mail delivery, open grocery stores, good health. Until something breaks down in some way, life just floats happily along without one-more-thing to add to the

‘tis the season to bring the indoors – outdoors

Now that summer weather is upon us in Minnesota, our outside lawns, gardens, patios and even driveways become extended “living space” for a few long-awaited months. Enjoying outdoor living space is becoming more popular than ever with “staycations” and home entertaining at an all-time high.  Trends in outdoor rooms and furnishings are a natural invitation to enjoy time with your family and friends in the warm open air.

What a Lovely Place for a Party!

It’s only going take Mother Nature a short time to “close the gap” between when we found ourselves shoveling our driveways to when we experience the lovely fragrance the blooming lilacs as spring breezes drift through the neighborhood. Ahhh…the season of graduations, weddings, BBQ’s, birthdays and “Sprinkler Day” has once again arrived in Minnesota.

“Garage Phenomenon” is the best outside theatre seating for watching yard games

Beyond hotdish, “Wanna go with?”, bars (the square-cut dessert kind), lutefisk and “you betcha” – non-Minnesotans also find “garage life” is another regional concept to learn when moving here. In other parts of the country, people sit on their front porches to visit, read, watch kids play or witness life pass by.  Many porches, patios or decks, are an extension of indoor living – at least for part of the

It’s hard to bloom when you get run over every day.

”Growing as a flower in the Twin Cities is a hard job.  As if the winter isn’t tough enough on us as it is!  There’s all the effort of thawing out, poking through any cracks possible with soft enough soil to finally get some sunshine, then BAM!  Run over again.” This could be taken as a life-philosophy in general, but we’re talking about the tulips popping up in your driveway.  There

What do teeth, love letters, driveways and safes have in common?

They are things that are SO important, that they require being “sealed” in order to keep them protected. No not all of them require being S.W.A.K. (Sealed With A Kiss), although, in theory, they could be. Sealants are important for longevity and keeping precious things safe. At Richfield Blacktop and Concrete, it is important for us to not only provide well-engineered and fantastic looking driveways (or patios, walkways or dog

What’s for lunch? What….a wheel alignment to go along with that pothole?

What a great season to be in auto repair.  Potholes are a boon to that industry this time of year in Minnesota, given the mess the potholes create with the deterioration of asphalt roads, driveways, and even expansion cracks in concrete paved areas.. Did you know that the MN Department of Transportation actually has a “recipe for potholes” on its website?  Yummmm….. A recipe for potholes The ingredients of a
