Hardscaping Helps the Form and Function of Landscape Design

Tremendously improve your landscape through the addition of hardscapes. Patios, fire pits, garden walls, planters, and outdoor kitchens are just a few of the things hardscaping includes. These value-added things can make your East Tennessee home or commercial property much more enjoyable. When creatively combined with a rich landscape design and the property’s architecture, the design of professional hardscapes will add a new and dramatic addition and continuity to any outdoor living space. Additionally, hardscapes provide a great solution to problematic areas of grass or plant growth. Or if you have poor soil composition or prolonged wet areas, a hardscape can remedy that issue as well.

Patio Hardscapes

A patio can enhance both your home and your landscape, and it will immediately raise the resale value of your home. When you have a patio installed, you’ll have an inviting place to host guests, or spend time with your family.

Fire Pits

There’s nothing better than the glow and scent of a wood-burning fireplace on a cool night with family and friends. Designing the perfect outdoor fireplace for your yard, patio, or deck will enhance the atmosphere of any night.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are a great way to get rid of an unwanted slope in your landscape. At the same time they add a beautiful element to your property. Our professional landscape designers find the balance between the functionality and aesthetic enhancement that a retaining wall offers. We’ll offer creative ways to turn these necessities into one of the more valued aspects of your landscape design.


An arbor can be a great addition to your landscape or garden. It can be a gathering area that keeps your guest out of the sun, and be a beautiful decorative piece as well.
