Colors are extremely difficult to accurately present online.  46 Riverwood features a brown body with a dark accent.  It complements many of the currently available facing stone lines.  Contact your sales representative or local distributor for samples.

As with all colors available from Whitacre Greer.  Colors within a given shipment of pavers will vary slightly due to subtle changes in clay composition and kiln firing temperatures. Such color variations should not be considered a defect, but a natural desirable feature that gives the pavers greater character and depth.  Please request a sample before making a final color selection.
