Hardscaping

Hardscaping refers to the use of non-plant material, such as stone or stone-like materials, and wood in the garden. Timeless beauty etched by wind and water

Examples of this include garden walls, walkways, patios, fireplaces, fire pits, built in grills, fences, and decks.  Hardscaping is the backbone of any successful outdoor project. Our design staff has years of landscape construction and design experience to create for you the most usable hardscape space for your personal and entertainment requirements. We will also work with you to determine the most appropriate materials to use based on your home’s architectural style and setting.

Professionally-planned hardscape

A professionally-planned hardscape from Xscapes Landscaping establishes the surfaces and structure that defines and connects important areas of your property and directs traffic flow. We call that “The Absolutes”. The impact of good design is easily recognized. Properly integrated walls, walkways, patios, and fences become an extension of your existing architecture and make your landscape more dramatic.

Walls

Walls can be made from many different materials, either natural stone or fabricated. They satisfy a variety of outdoor needs and can be both functional and decorative. Walls can be used to define outdoor spaces, retain and level areas, or create raised planting beds.

Whether you prefer natural or manufactured stone, our skilled craftsmen are qualified to construct a wide variety of custom projects. We are a VA Licensed Class A Contractor and also certified by the Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute (ICPI).

Patios

Patios are a prime example of an outdoor living space. When properly designed and constructed they provide areas for dining, entertaining, or simply relaxing.

Patio and pool landscapes can be made out of any stone material, from imported tumbled pavers to wet laid flagstone, and each material can be set in a variety of patterns.
