Homeowners often design landscapes around natural features such as flowers, plants and trees. These elements can create a stunning outdoor space. However, adding hardscapes can further enhance aesthetics and functionality.

Any non-living feature of your landscape is considered a hardscape. Structures made of stone, concrete, brick or wood typically serve a functional purpose. Examples include pathways, patios, walkways, the poolside and outdoor kitchens.

Enhance Functionality

Relaxing in the garden is a great way to spend the summer. However, functionality adds to the enjoyment of family and friends. For example, you can add a patio for entertaining guests, pathways to navigate the landscape or retaining walls to create a tiered outdoor space.

Utilizing your landscape adds value to your outdoor experience. You can increase accessibility by adding pathways. Green spaces are protected, while functional hardscapes allow you to make more of your garden. You can create dining, relaxing or playing areas through the effective integration of hardscapes.

Extend Living Space

One of the main reasons to add hardscapes is to create outdoor living spaces. For example, hosting gatherings in your garden will benefit from having an outdoor kitchen. Additionally, areas for relaxing or meeting create comfortable and inviting spaces.

When the sun goes down, having a firepit allows you to extend your time outdoors. Some hardscapes will enable you to enjoy your landscape throughout the year. Overall, expanded living spaces give you greater access and utilization of your property.

Increase Visual Appeal

A landscape that incorporates hardscapes is visually enhanced. You can play with textures, colors and building materials to create your dream outdoor spaces. Focal points add elements that lead the eye, clearly identifying the function of each area.

You can complement and enhance green spaces by adding hardscapes. Unique features can create uniformity or contrast, depending on your personal preferences. With the right additions to your landscape, you can also increase your home’s curb appeal and value.

Low Maintenance and Longevity

Hardscapes are typically built from durable materials that are low maintenance and long-lasting. Weather resistance is an important consideration when choosing hardscapes. However, you can rely on Maxwell Landscaping to guide you through your choices, design and installation.

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
