    In search of the perfect cement block. Seriously.

    Does anyone know where i can buy decorative ''screen'' cement blocks?

    I''ve tried Home Depot without any luck.
    Can anyone save me some legwork?
    Many thanks!

    That is so cool!

    I've scavenged a few of the square ones here and there from dump sites and old homesteads. I'd bet salvagers come across them from time to time.

    Maybe fifteen years ago I needed the very heavy ones used for driveways. I found some at the big orange home store chain, but it was the last of the supply and they were discontinued. Didn't have the time or the money to scout more out at that time. Many people remarked on my driveway. It was more an ecological choice to allow water to the roots of the old trees on the property, but I loved the look of it, too.
