What is Hardscaping?
Hardscaping refers to the hard materials used for both function and aesthetics in landscape design. It includes elements such as backyard patios, waterfalls, fountains, and many others. Greenville Landscaping provides you with a wide range of hardscaping services and design options to help you achieve the outdoor living space of your dreams in Greenville and the surrounding area.
What Hardscaping Services Does Greenville Landscaping Offer?
Quality hardscaping design and installation not only allows you to achieve the aesthetic goals for your landscape and lawn but it also provides long-lasting functionality capable of withstanding years of use and harsh weather conditions.
Our designers and builders here at Greenville Landscaping are trained and experienced in the construction of hardscapes whose structural integrity is unmatched. We are committed to providing hardscaping design and installation that creates a safe, functional, and beautiful outdoor living space.
Here Are Some of the Hardscaping Services We Offer:
Fireplaces and Fire Pits
Nothing can be compared to sitting around a fire with your family and friends on those cool summer and autumn nights. Whether you are sharing drinks with your neighbors or roasting marshmallows with the children, having a fire pit or fireplace in your backyard can provide entertainment for the entire family. You can trust our team to build the fireplace or fire pit of your dreams.
Patios provide the perfect space for relaxing, entertaining, and enjoying the things you love with your loved ones. At Greenville Landscaping, we pride ourselves in building custom patios that offer all that you need in terms of outdoor living space. If you have always dreamed of having an outdoor kitchen or a screened-in patio where you can relax after a long hard day at work, we can help with that too.
A retaining wall is a short wall that’s used to separate two levels of landscaping. Retaining walls are used to create a more functional outdoor living space, fix issues with drainage and erosion, or even modify landscapes to improve aesthetics. Our team of expert retaining wall builders can help you construct a landscaping feature that’s not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable.
Walkways made of custom pavers, stone, bricks, and other materials are far more beautiful that just plain concrete and make your outdoor space look more inviting. Walkways also encourage you to get some use out of the yard. To implement this common but functional hardscaping feature, you should only trust Greenville Landscaping to build a custom walkway in your property.
If a water feature is the last piece of the puzzle for your outdoor living space to be complete, then you are in luck. At Greenville Landscaping we can help you construct the water feature that you have always dreamed of having whether it is a serene waterfall in your backyard, a show-stopping fountain, or even a modern-day mote.
If you want your home to be the hottest attraction during summer, then a pool is a must-have feature. A pool is guaranteed to be an investment that your whole family can enjoy for a long time to come, particularly if it is built by our professional team. From infinity pools to freeform lagoon pools, backyard splash zones to backyard spas, you can trust our team to turn your dreams into reality.
Driveways are a necessary feature in most homes, but they are rarely ever attractive. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be the case. Our hardscape design and installation team can create a custom driveway by installing pavers and other types of stone or even concrete to either compose or line your entire driveway. If you trust our team to work on your custom driveway, you can forget about hiding it behind fences or shrubs.
Fences and Walls
Greenville Landscaping can build vertically too. Our expertise in beautifying properties is what makes us leading experts when it comes to walls and fences. You can get creative by replacing a regular chain-link or wooden fence with a metal post fence, a horizontal plank fence, or even a brick wall. We can even age the appearance of a new brick wall to give it an antique look.
Cabanas, Arbors, and Pergolas
Pergolas, cabanas, and arbors are all outdoor structures designed to add accents and shade to your yard. Cabanas and pergolas and make excellent destination points in your yard while an arbor is ideal for transitioning between two distinct features or lining a path. We always recommend placing your preferred structure far away from the main structure for a sense of escape and privacy.
Steel Edging Installation
We sometimes recommend using steel edging to create a clean line of definition between your lawn and driveway or to help delineate a stone path that meanders through your flower garden. Steel edging is a great way to keep plants separate from your driveway and/or walkway. Steel edging of different types is available depending on the intended use.

Hardscaping Design and Installation: Frequently Asked Questions
When planning your hardscaping project you may find yourself asking:
What is the first step when creating a hardscape project?
Our initial meeting with you the customer allows us to have a better picture of what you have in mind for the project. We would like to know what you want to see included and what should be excluded and everything in between.
Other hardscaping companies will attempt to steer you towards ideas that generate more profits for them, but we are different since we always put the desires of our customers first to ensure that they get decades of memories and enjoyment from the outdoor living space we help them create.
What happens after the initial consultation?
We will then schedule a second meeting at the property where the hardscaping features are to be installed and bring along a variety of materials, textures, and colors for you to choose from for your project.
It is an exciting phase where you start seeing the project come alive and is a critical step in finding materials that match your home, tastes, and landscape. We will also discuss recommendations, add-ons, as well as other details intended to ensure the success of your project.
What are the different types of pavers?
Pavers are of different types including tumbled pavers, textured pavers, and smooth pavers. Textured pavers have a textured surface, smooth pavers have square corners and a smooth surface, while tumbled pavers have chiseled corners that have a distressed and antique look.
Are pavers limited in terms of color and style options?
No. Our pavers come in a wide range of styles and colors. While failing to find a suitable color is rare, custom colors can be manufactured for specific hues. Within each style, different patterns of the same style can be laid thus expanding your options further.
Are patios and driveways constructed of pavers stronger than those with concrete?
Pavers are usually 2 to 3 times stronger than regular concrete construction. Heavy pieces of equipment around the world operate on top of paving stone surfaces. Paving stones are also guaranteed against breaking or cracking. After installation, paving stones are virtually maintenance-free and ideal for your patio or driveway.
Is it difficult to maintain paving stones?
If paving stones are installed the right way, they are virtually maintenance-free. You can be sure that they won’t ever break or crack for the duration that you will own the property. To further protect them or achieve a certain effect such as a “wet-look,” you can apply sealant.
What makes the pavers that Greenville Landscaping uses ideal for walkways, driveways, and patios?
We install pavers that are capable of withstanding the toughest environments. Our skilled team of hardscaping experts is properly trained to install the pavers such that you end up with a surface that’s not only rigid but also flexible. Joints between the pavers allow your hardscape to move without cracking.
Individual pavers can be easily removed to allow for better access to utilities or for repairs to be undertaken. Unlike asphalt, the pavers our team uses don’t require maintenance and don’t have to be replaced or sealed regularly. Our pavers are 3 times stronger than standard poured concrete. You are free to use your driveway, walkway, or patio immediately after compaction and sweeping in of the jointing sand.
What is the white deposit that sometimes appears on wall blocks and pavers?
That’s most likely efflorescence, which appears naturally on any masonry or concrete product. Surface moisture is what draws out the naturally occurring salts. It is important to note that efflorescence does not prove that the product is flawed and it actually dissipates over time. The best thing you can do is to allow weathering to get rid of the efflorescence.
You can also remove efflorescence using specifically designed chemicals to treat the surface salts. Still, these don’t stop the process permanently and the efflorescence may appear in the future. If you use chemicals to remove the efflorescence, you should follow the instructions carefully since they are caustic and may ruin the stones.
How long will the project take and how invasive will it be?
Projects can take anywhere from a few days to a few months depending on what is involved. At Greenville Landscaping, we always take extra care to make sure that our scheduling fits perfectly within yours and that you have a clear understanding of what to expect well before the project commences.
Hardscape installations range anywhere from minimally invasive to non-invasive. However, our team is trained to work efficiently and neatly and always make it a point to leave project sites in the best shape possible once the project is complete. We value our reputation highly and actually depend on satisfied customers to give us good referrals.
How much can I expect to pay for hardscaping design and installation?
Each project is unique, which is why it is virtually impossible to provide an accurate estimate before first seeing what the project involves and ironing out all the details with the owner of the property. Everyone likes a good deal, but in many instances, you get exactly what you pay for in terms of the quality of the finished product.
