Hardscape: Patios, Parking Slabs, Driveways, and Walkways.

There are many kinds of paved additions to your building’s landscape that are as useful as they are durable: patios provide space for outdoor parties or relaxation without any risk of damage to your turf. Level parking slabs give your vehicle’s tires a break after a commute through the pothole-ridden roads of Wisconsin. driveways ensure all your guests have a safe place to park, and walkways make all the important areas of your property more accessible to you.

With any paving project comes a choice in material and with any material comes a distinct aesthetic style. Some prefer the free-flowing look of natural stone, others prefer the symmetrical patterns found in bricks and pavers. Still, some prefer to keep paving as simple as laying gravel and compacting it. Regardless of your taste, our years of experience in working with these paving materials, along with the core strength and beauty of the materials themselves. We ensure your paved space will be enjoyed for many years to come.

Material Options:

  • Natural Stone Pavers
  • Clay Brick Pavers
  • Concrete Pavers
  • Gravel/Stone

Retaining Walls-

The main purpose of a retaining wall is to prevent the erosion of soil on a steeply sloped surface. However, when special attention is given in deciding the material they’re made from, a retaining wall becomes both functional and beautiful, which, in turn, adds monetary and aesthetic value to your building.

Most retaining walls are built out of timbers, boulders, or blocks, each with their own strengths and drawbacks. Timber retaining walls, while cheap and efficient, won’t have the same lifespan as a block wall will because over time the wood will rot. Conversely, block walls will cost you more upfront but will last much longer than any timber or boulder wall could. They also come in a plethora of styles and colors, ensuring any landscape design can be fit.

Standing in the middle-ground of the two previous options is the boulder wall. Boulder walls, when done properly, will stand longer than a timber wall could and will cost you less than a block wall would. They also provide a look of natural asymmetry that some prefer over the hard-cut corners of timbers and blocks. Regardless of your tastes and landscape, we will provide you with all the options you need to ensure you’re getting a durable and beautiful wall that fits within your landscape and your budget.

Material Options:

  • Concrete Block
  • Natural Stone
  • Timber
