What is the purpose of hardscapes? Most people have an immediate idea of what a typical landscape might look like. When it comes to hardscapes, the types of features used can cause confusion. However, the idea is not as complicated as you may think.

Hardscapes are basically any manmade feature that is added to your landscape or around the home. For instances, paths and walls are common hardscape features. If you have ideas for improving your outdoor experience that don’t involve vegetation, Maxwell Landscaping can help.

Aesthetic Hardscapes

Some hardscape features are installed for purely aesthetic reasons. Installations such as walls are not necessarily functional. You can change the layout, balance and symmetry with attractive hardscapes. Alternatively, you may want to add attractive constructions that capture the attention of visitors.

Maxwell Landscaping can help you choose or design the right hardscapes for optimal aesthetics. Our extensive experience means we are passionate artisans with an eye for detail. If you have a challenging project in mind, call today to discuss your needs.

Functional Hardscapes

Most hardscapes can or do provide some level of functionality. A path that provides a walkway around your landscape or a pond that is home to aquatic wildlife are common examples. You can also add features that enhance your outdoor living experience, such as an alfresco kitchen and bar.

Many of the hardscape installations that Maxwell Landscaping customers request are designed for outdoor entertaining. Seating areas that catch the sun, playhouses for kids or a pool where family and guests can cool off are popular additions to any garden.

If you would like to explore what is possible with hardscapes for your Lake Norman home, call Maxwell Landscaping today. We look forward to helping you achieve the ultimate outdoor living experience.

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
