Make your patio and landscaping more inviting by adding new hardscaping projects. You can create beautiful outdoor living spaces and incorporate multi-use spaces.

One of the important parts of landscape and hardscape design is determining how to walk through the space. That’s why building a paver walkway is a simple way to do so, or by joining two patio areas.

Retaining Wall

Although a retaining wall can prevent erosion, it can also create a beautifully, terraced landscaped and hardscaped area. Retaining walls can be used to expand the amount of flat ground around it. Low retaining walls can act as room dividers, they’re also just the right height to maximize the use of the space without furniture; they can be used as extra seating when entertaining. Higher retaining walls can be used as a bar area, include comfy bar stools and say cheers!

Add Ambience with a Firepit, outdoor Fireplace or Water Feature

Love the calming sound of water? Experience it with your own pond, fountain or other water feature; it takes an outdoor living space from typical to luxurious. And when the weather begins to cool off, relax by an open fire; you and your family will still be able to enjoy evenings outdoors, roasting marshmallows, drinking hot toddies and cuddling.

Create a Border Using Edging Stones

Even minimal hardscaping can be used to define an area. For a garden, a stone border delineates the formal lawn, while creating a transition space within the landscaping space.

Stone Raised Planting Beds

Raised plant beds provide a functional solution for outlining patios, walkways, gardens and other landscaping elements.

Stairs and Sunken Gardens

Match the style of your new stairs to the topography of your property. If there is a steep slope leading down to a sunken garden, you can break up the stairs in sets of steps with landings, turns or switchbacks.


Illuminate your water features, walkways, dining and seating areas with outdoor lighting. You can add either short, tall or a combination of stone pillars with lighting fixtures or torches. Much like retaining walls these pillars can break up the outdoor living spaces, while adding an architectural element to your landscape.
