Pavers add a sophisticated edge to your landscaped walkways. The sky is the limit when it comes to hardscape choices for pavers.

Natural stone pavers are climbing in popularity. Tumbled travertine paver, quarried in Turkey, is one of today's top in natural stone pavers. It is a great product that does not retain heat, which makes it ideal to walk barefoot on plus it is slip resistant, so it's safer around a pool.

Brick pavers and specialized stones are also trending with notable durability, color, texture, and size.

Concrete pavers are becoming a thing of the past, because concrete can crack. Brick can be repaired if any problems arise. 

Fire Pits

Custom fire pits built right into your patio are a perennial favorite for backyard landscaping. Fire pits can be round or square, wood burning or gas, natural stone or pre-cast block.

Options are endless on what custom built fire pits can look like. Keep in mind, quality construction with top-of-the-line hardscapes is very important.

What a great way to relax at the end of a busy day, cozying up outside around the fire with family and friends. 

Water Features 

Add the sense of sound to your garden with a water feature. In the middle of a lazy summer day or at the end of a busy workday, there's nothing more soothing than the sound of trickling water. This can be as simple as a bubbling boulder or fountain, which does just what it says: bubbles water and recirculates. Ornamental ponds with a waterfall or a stream make a grander statement. These are very natural and a great focal point to your yard. Create a place to sit and enjoy, watch a butterfly or your favorite furry friend get a quick drink.

For something a bit flashier, consider color falls, which are essentially a lighted waterfall right in your yard. Add waterspouts on the sides for extra water flow.

Water elements add sophistication and tranquility to every garden design. A stream or pond provides beauty and can solve a tricky drainage problem.

You pick your spot then let us come up with an innovative solution. You'll enjoy the calming effect and added property value that a custom water feature can bring.
