Paver Sidewalks and Retaining Walls

A wide variety of materials are available.

If you are looking to maximize curb appeal or needing to replace or repair your current dilapidated stairs you've come to the right place. Stairs provide a transition between entrances and patios, walkways or slopes. As with other elements of hardscape, the stair material, size, shape and placement should complement materials in the plantings and other stonework.

We have pavers, bluestone, concrete and brick as appropriate to each stairway project. Similar or different material may be used in risers versus treads. Attention is given to safety, beauty and durability as well as proportion relative to the nearby walkway or entrance. Slope and grade differences are also considered and addressed as part of our stair designs.. Our stairs are welcoming, attractive and practical.

Retaining walls are an aesthetically pleasing and multi-functional way to support ground that would otherwise move downwards. Their purpose is to stabilize slopes and provide useful areas at different elevations. We offer a wide variety of materials to accommodate whatever it is that you are looking for. We utilize several manufacturers to be able to offer a price that fits most budgets. It is more than a wall it is a work of art.

We can custom design and build paver patios, driveways and walkways. We also install retaining walls from custom seat walls around patios to earth support walls. With today’s ever expanding selection of outdoor living products we pride ourselves in our wide range of services from the simple but classy paver stone patio or walkway to the more elaborate fire pit or water feature.

Our specialties include installing:
Stone work, Paver Brick, Patios, Sidewalks, Driveways, Retaining Walls, Fire Pits, and Seat Walls. If you can dream it we can build it.

Fire Pits

Fire pits offer an excellent alternative to outdoor fireplaces and may better suit your landscaping needs. A fire pit is often the focal point of a social gathering of friends and family. Fire pits can be designed and custom built us in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your tastes, space, and backyard landscape needs. Fire pits are often used as accents in a well designed landscape and can be custom built using a selection of styles and materials, including natural stone, pre-cast concrete, slate, bluestone, brick, and stacked stone.

Water Features

Running water has a soothing and calming effect and helps to drown out other background noises such as traffic or neighbors. You can create your own quiet corner, a relaxing and peaceful place to getaway and enjoy the sights and sounds of water. Water gardens can be created in a variety of designs from koi ponds to elegant water falls.

A water garden adds sophistication and value to your property. In addition to increasing your property value and making your property more appealing, water gardens and water features provide habitat for wildlife. Birds, bees, butterflies and other critters will enjoy a refreshing water source.

Other water features include landscape ponds such as Koi ponds, water falls, fountains, and landscape streams. If you have an existing pond, stream or other natural water feature on your property we can improve its beauty and function.

Poison Ivy & Poison Oak

Poison Ivy Removal

Poison Ivy (above) and Poison Oak (below) are most easily removed early in the season before growth begins. Landscaping With Hart can identify and eliminate these irritating plants before they sprout identifying leaves.

Poison Oak Removal

Later in the season, removal of these plants is more difficult when rash-inducing oils are "ripe". Both Poison Ivy and Poison Oak tend to grow among and around rocks, trees and other protective structures, adding to the difficulty of removal.

Weed-whacking these plants explode the oils into a fine mist that can penetrate to any skin covered by loose-fitting clothing and garden gloves. Call Landscaping With Hart to eradicate these nuisances before they come into contact with family or guests, especially children.
