Retaining Walls

Selecting from timber, precast concrete units, armourstone and natural stone veneer - we can help design and implement a retaining structure to suit any budget.

Natural Stone Patios

The timeless beauty of limestone and granite natural stone flagstone is sure to enhance your pool deck, patio or porch.

Driveways & Walkways

Upgrading an existing asphalt driveway is an instant curb appeal enhancement. With access to top products including Unilock, Permacon, Techo Bloc and Oaks the design/budget possibilities are endless.

Fire Features

Extending the outdoor entertaining season can be accomplished with the installation of a propane or natural gas fire burner. We can help enhance the appearance by adding a natural stone veneer and coping.

Outdoor Cookstations

Take your grilling experience to the next level by upgrading your BBQ work station with grills, cabinetry and bar fridges. We can custom design a cook station solution with a range of finishes to fit any space.

Pergolas & Structures

We can custom tailor a pergola to accommodate decorative PVC or stone columns, cedar lattice inlays or motorized canopy screens and fans.


Whether you are in the market for a pressure-treated, cedar, capped composite or PVC deck, we can help design, permit and build any deck solution you require.

Privacy Screens & Fences

We can help install a perimeter fence around your rear yard or we can install a privacy screen using pressure-treated, cedar, PVC, glass or any combination to meet your screen needs.

Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting is an essential feature of any landscape project to highlight the focal points of your project and create the perfect night setting for entertaining. An irrigation system helps ensure your gardens remain healthy throughout the dry hot summer.

Water Features

With natural looking ponds, stone veneered waterfalls or stone bubblers - the sound of running water while lounging outside can create a soothing and relaxing experience.

Garden Beds & Lawns

Updating a tired garden with a combination of coniferous and deciduous trees and shrubs, perennials, annuals and groundcovers along with a new lawn can create a dramatic curb appeal enhancement for your property.
