How Do Hardscaping Contractors Improve Your Property?

Hardscaping allows you to better enjoy your backyard. There’s nothing better than relaxing on a comfortable patio after a long day of work or cozying up next to a fireplace on a cool fall evening. But hardscaping has many benefits beyond comfortability.

Your investment in a hardscape project is well worth it since it increases your home’s value. This can be a significant boon if you’re looking to sell now or in the future. Not looking to sell? Increased property values may also help provide additional community resources. Of course, hardscape projects also improve curb appeal and create a safer outdoor environment.

What Does Hardscaping Include?

Hardscaping refers to work done with “hard” landscape materials or any non-living things you may place in your yard.  This service goes hand-in-hand with landscaping and pairs perfectly with landscape lighting.

Every hardscape contracting company does its work a little differently and may use different materials. At Environmental Landscapes, we’re exceptionally good at brickwork but also work with natural stone and concrete.

A few of our hardscaping offerings include:




Retaining Walls



Kitchen Islands

Bar Islands

And More!

Exceptional Warranties

We use professional-grade materials from companies like Unilock and Tecoblock for all our hardscaping projects. These materials come with a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturers.

Since we care so much about our customers and take so much pride in our work, Environmental Landscapes goes beyond the manufacturer’s warranties. We also offer a 7-year labor warranty on all work performed.

How Our Hardscaping Services Work

We’ve designed our hardscaping services to be as thorough and straightforward as possible. At every stage of the process, we ensure you feel included and heard. Here’s what you can expect when you hire Environmental Landscapes for your hardscaping project:

1. Free Consultation

One of our team members will come to your home for a free consultation, where they’ll listen to your concerns and wants. We’ll offer our expert opinion and let you know what’s possible.

2. Taking Measurements

We’ll take all the necessary measurements once we receive confirmation you want to move forward. This helps us with future steps, like creating the design and quote.

3. Creating the Design

We’ll create a realistic design of what the final result should look like using the information we received from you during the initial consultation.

4. Presenting Quote

We’ll present you with the quote, which breaks down cost factors contributing to the total price. Our team members will take time to answer any questions.

5. Taking Permits

Once approved, we’ll move forward by taking care of any permits required by the Village. Some projects won’t require this, while others will.

6. Project Planning

Next, we’ll take time to plan the project with strict attention to detail. Proper planning helps project execution go smoother and ensures there are no hold-ups once we begin.

7. Project Execution

Finally, it’s time to execute the project according to your exact specifications. Once finished, we’ll thoroughly clean the area, so it’s left better than when we found it.

8. Final Walkthrough

Our job isn’t complete until we do the final walkthrough, where we get your approval on the final results. Achieving perfection and absolute customer satisfaction is critical for us.
