Hardscaping

Our handcrafted, custom hardscape installations will make your landscape stand out.

 

We love plants, but plants alone will not provide you with the ultimate landscape.  Allow us to create amazing things in your landscape using hardscape elements that will stand the test of time.

Hardscaping is essentially the non-living portion of your yard.  It not only adds functionality, but also enhances the beauty and value of your landscape.  Our talented team creates many different types and styles of hardscapes including custom patios, stairs, walkways and pathways, retaining walls, edges and borders, raised beds, trellises and arbors.  We use the finest materials to produce high quality, long-lasting elements that complement the landscape and increase your enjoyment of your outdoor space.

In addition to water features, hardscapes are primarily composed of natural stone, fabricated stone, metal and/or wood.  Each of these material types includes hundreds of wide-ranging characteristics.  Let us pair our experience with your desire to select the best materials for you.  Our familiarity with the variety and application of each material allows us to quickly recommend the proper styles and amounts to complement any existing landscape or dwelling.

Natural Stone

Natural stone tends to be more spontaneous and earthy.  Colors can vary greatly even within individual types of stone.  Natural stone blends well into existing landscapes.

Fabricated Blocks and Pavers

Man-made blocks and pavers are more uniform and linear.  They offer cleaner lines through landscapes.  They are available in ever-increasing colors and patterns; allowing other landscape elements to blend better, like natural stone, yet maintain their linear strength.

Woodworks and Carpentry

Natural wood materials work wonderfully for fence lines, raised planter boxes, trellises and arbors.  Composite materials, such as Trex, are a popular alternative to traditional wood products.

Metal

Metals, such as steel, aluminum and copper, add a new dimension of color and texture to landscapes.  Metals can be incorporated for function, like a steel edging along a gravel pathway, or for fancy, like a whimsical piece of locally-crafted art.
