What are Hardscapes &

Hardscape Design

For us, hardscape design and hardscaping are the expert integration of a variety of materials such as stone, pavers, and wall blocks into something aesthetically pleasing. Patios, paver driveways, walkways, and walls are designed and installed not only for function but fashion as well.

New Builds

It starts with the design process. Please click here to go to our Project Management page.

Once designed, we install for the long term. We have ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) certified paver installers, and NCMA (National Concrete Masonry Association) certified Segmental Retaining wall installers. Their standards insure we do it right the first time. The real work is in what you don’t see – the proper excavation, sub base, base, and drainage.

Because of our quality and attention to detail, we are Authorized Installer Contractors for several Paver and Wall manufacturing companies, including Techo-Bloc, Unilock, and Belgard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why not seal right away?

Polymeric sand needs to cure and pavers need to age to limit efflorescence problems.

What is the expected life of sand joints in new paving surfaces?

Depending on site conditions, 3-5 years can be expected.

How often will I need to reseal?

Depending on site conditions, every 3-5 years.

What should I expect from my old pavers when newly cleaned?

Paver color will be brightened and some aggregate in pavers may be exposed when debris is removed.

Will sealing prevent moss and mildew?

Sealing, along with routine annual maintenance, will slow down and limit moss and mildew build up, but not eliminate moss or mildew.

What is the best time to clean and seal?

Cleaning and sealing is best done in warmer temperatures to allow for adequate drying, summer months of June-September are best.

Will sealing make my pavers slippery?

There are two main types of sealers, film forming and penetrating, and each have their specific applications. As a general rule, where slip hazards are a concern, penetrating sealers are applied.
