backyard stone patio with an outdoor kitchen

A hardscape can become an integral part of your landscape. Features such as raised plant beds, outdoor fireplaces and custom built ovens can add both aesthetic and practical improvements. The problem is, not all contractors are able to fully realize the vision you have for your front or back yard.

In many cases, hardscapes do not blend well with surrounding features. Everything from placement to the materials used, including color contrasting, are important considerations when choosing hardscapes. Only a true artisan has the skills and experience to do your project the justice that it deserves.

Low Cost Hardscapes

While there is no rule that states hardscapes should cost a fortune, it is important to think about the implications of underpaying. If a hardscape feature is large, complex in design and requires the use of expensive materials, it makes sense to be wary of contractors who promise to complete work at a significantly lower cost than the industry average. As the old saying goes, “You get what you pay for.”

Feature Placement

Ultimately, feature placement is your sole decision. However, sometimes a feature placement does not make sense for several potential reasons. For instance, installing a hardscape barbeque in a roofed space without ventilation would end in disaster. For best results, you should be willing to work with a hardscape specialist who can provide expert advice and guidance. It may require a certain level of compromise, but you are more likely to be happy with the results.

Materials & Artisanship

Even at the low end of cost, you are likely to pay a pretty penny for most hardscape features. Getting value for money is therefore a major consideration. The materials used combined with the level of artisanship is what truly makes for a great hardscape project.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
