Hardscape Design & Construction Services

Hardscaping design and installation by Brick Water & Stone involves the process of planning, designing, and implementing non-living or "hard" elements in an outdoor space to create functional, aesthetically pleasing, and structurally sound landscapes. We utilize various materials to build permanent or semi-permanent features that enhance the usability and visual appeal of outdoor areas. We create patios, walkways, driveways, retaining walls, cobble edging, veneers and other outdoor structures. Here's a closer look at our hardscaping design and installation:

Hardscaping Design Services:

  1. Site Analysis: We evaluate the space's existing features, such as topography, soil conditions, drainage patterns, and existing vegetation.

  2. Functional Requirements: We determine the intended uses of the space, whether it's for entertaining, relaxation, outdoor dining, or recreation.

  3. Material Selection: We choose suitable hardscape materials, which may include stone, concrete, brick, pavers, and more. Consider factors like durability, aesthetics, maintenance, and local climate.

  4. Layout and Planning: We design the layout of hardscape features, considering factors like pathways, seating areas, focal points, and how they'll interact with the existing landscape.

  5. Scale and Proportion: We ensure that the size and proportions of the hardscape elements are appropriate for the space and create a balanced visual composition.

  6. Aesthetics: We can incorporate design elements such as color schemes, textures, patterns, and forms that complement the surrounding environment and fulfill the client's preferences.

  7. Integration: We integrate hardscaping elements with the natural landscape, existing vegetation, and other outdoor features.

  8. Accessibility: Design pathways and ramps that are ADA-compliant for accessibility if required.

Hardscaping Construction:
  1. Site Preparation: We clear the area of vegetation, debris, and obstacles and excavate and grade the land as needed to achieve the desired contours.

  2. Foundation: Depending on the hardscape element, create a suitable foundation. This involves compacting soil, laying a base of gravel or sand, and ensuring proper drainage.

  3. Construction: We can then construct the chosen hardscape features, such as patios, walkways, walls, fire pits, fountains, or pergolas. We follow the design plan and use appropriate construction techniques.

  4. Materials Installation: Lay pavers, stones, bricks, or other materials in the desired pattern and arrangement. This requires careful attention to alignment and levelness.

  5. Structural Elements: When installing retaining walls, water features, or elevated structures, we ensure proper engineering to ensure stability and safety.

  6. Grouting and Sealing: For certain elements like pavers, grout the joints between the stones and apply sealants to protect against staining and weathering.

  7. Finishing Touches: Install landscape lighting, planters, furniture, and other accessories that enhance the functionality and aesthetics of the hardscape design.

  8. Cleanup: Remove construction debris, level the surfaces, and ensure the site is clean and ready for use.
