What are my hardscaping options?

Hardscaping elements include anything from walkways to retaining walls. Our team can help you design an arrangement of hardscapes that complement your lawn and garden perfectly. Among our hardscaping options are:

  • Fire pits – We provide custom fire pits, pre-formed stone fire pits, and double-sided fireplaces to create the setting for a lovely backyard gathering of friends and family.
  • Patios – These features can be attached to your home or stand-alone. They provide an open-air setting for hosting parties or cookouts.
  • Retaining walls – Retaining walls are structures that support and retain soil on your property. They can create beautiful terraces while also preventing erosion.
  • Pavers – Comprising a variety of materials, pavers serve as exterior flooring for your walkways, driveways, and more.

How do pavers compare with patterned or stamped concrete?

Patterned concrete pavements are merely slabs of concrete that are embossed with a pattern. Therefore, they are prone to the same problems with freeze/thaw cycles, namely cracking and spalling. Pavers won't crack or spall. Stamped concrete requires expansion joints every 10 feet or so, which are very distracting in some patterns. Also, unlike pavers, patterned concrete pavements don't allow access to underground utilities or the ability to make repairs and require sealing every couple of years depending on use. At virtually the same price per square foot installed, pavers are clearly a superior choice.

Where in my landscape can sitting walls be useful?

A sitting wall performs a dual purpose- it provides support to the landscape, helps prevent soil erosion from excavated slope areas and provides extra outdoor seating as well. These are low-height walls with flat tops that can be used as a seating surface. These walls can be built along outdoor kitchen spaces, your patio, around a fireplace or fire pit area or just about anywhere in your landscape where you need this dual functionality.

Which areas of my landscape can I install pavers in?

Pavers are extremely versatile products and they can be installed on patios, walkways, driveways, decks, pathways, courtyards, entranceways as well as poolscapes.

Can you do any other types of specialty masonry?

Yes, our tradesmen are fully trained masonry professionals. We specialize in matching almost any material and seamlessly installing it so that the repair is undetectable in most cases.
