Building in Function to Landscape Designs
Hardscapes are made up of non-living materials, but serve as the backbone of most landscape designs. Texture, color, and pattern designs of selected hardscapes will lend year round visual interest and highlight architectural features of your home.
Decorative concrete can enhance your landscape, as the look of stamped concrete accents like nothing else. Concrete is often a popular choice because pavers or natural stone can be very expensive over larger square footage. Stamped concrete, for example, is less expensive, can be installed much quicker, lasts longer, has less maintenance and therefore is much more economical overall.
Decorative concrete includes stamped concrete, acid staining, decorative overlays, polished concrete, vertical overlays and more. Stamped concrete is a popular choice in that it gives you more flexibility to fit difficult areas were a square paver or cutting a stone would be much more time consuming, while at the same time reflecting the look of natural stone.
Pavers are available in a variety of patterns and colors to ensure a seamless match for your landscape design. Working with manufactured products we have experience in installing antique brick pavers, modern day clay pavers and the ever popular concrete pavers that have become mainstays.
Pavers have a variety of benefits, not the least of which is that they can be repaired individually, which saves a great amount of time and money when damages occur. They also shift piece by piece as needed, instead of cracking and breaking the entire hardscape.
Concrete & Retaining Walls
A well designed retaining wall will not only hold back sloping soil and assist in drainage, it can also add another stylish design element to your overall outdoor landscape. We construct walls in a variety of styles, from concrete to natural stone and rock.
Rock & Zen Gardens
Rock gardens are designed to feature and emphasize a variety of arrangements of rocks, stones, and boulders. They're popular due to their low maintenance and natural look.
The Japanese rock garden, often referred to as a Zen garden, is a special kind of rock garden with water features, moss, pruned trees and bushes, and very few plants. Zen gardens, which are one of six styles of Japanese gardens, focus on tranquility, with the added benefit of being extremely eco-friendly.
