Hardscape & Outdoor Living

During the past few years, hardscaping has taken on a whole new life! There’s an amazing array of materials and endless variety in designs and innovative ways to use hardscape materials to make your outdoor space more usable.

Of course, by hardscape we mean the inanimate elements of your outdoor space. Stone walls, patios, decks, steps are all part of the hardscape in a landscape design. By using hardscape elements as a complement to your horticultural elements, we provide an outdoor space that you’ll use for years to come. Whether you use your space for day-to-day family time, a place for guests to gather or for relaxing near the pool or fountain, we will develop a style that’s all yours.

The materials used in patios, walls, steps, benches and decks has improved dramatically. The number of choices is amazing and often overwhelming. No worries. We’re here to help you from your very first idea to placing the last brick or stone. Take a look at the hardscape section of our Gallery for ideas. Then, give us a call. We’ll work with you to make your yard a place you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Hardscape Lighting

The visual appeal of your hardscape patio, pillars, or walkway doesn't end when the sun goes down. Accent lighting complements your hardscape investment while providing aesthetics and safety. Lighting will drastically enhance steps, walls, and patios while you spend more time enjoying your outdoors in the evening hours. They also increase safety while traveling to your firepit, pool, or hot tub or however you utilize your backyard space. Unlike path lighting or uplighting that can be added at any time, many hardscape lighting options are integrated into the structure and should be planned during the design and installation phases of your build. There are unlimited options to meet your style and needs. Our landscape designers will work with you to create a custom solution that's sure to add the visual appeal that you're looking for.
