Here at Action Yard & Tree Services, we’re known throughout the Tucson area for our exceptional landscape design, installation, and maintenance services. However, our masonry contractors are also pleased to provide hardscape services for residential and commercial building owners. We’ll work closely with you to identify your design aesthetic and goals for your outdoor spaces before developing design recommendations that suit your needs. Your finished hardscape may include pavers, walkways, and retaining walls, just to name a few.
Whereas a landscape refers to the living plants in the area, a hardscape includes all of its non-living elements. Incorporating hardscaping into your outdoor space enhances its visual interest and improves its functionality. The masonry contractors at Action Yard & Tree Services can design and install a diverse range of hardscape elements for your home or business. Some examples of hardscape elements include the following:
- Patios built from flagstone, brick, concrete, or tile
- Stone walkways
- Gravel paths
- Retaining walls
Our masonry contractors work with all types of pavers, including brick, flagstone, natural stone, and concrete. The installation of pavers makes a wonderful addition to any hardscape. These are an incredibly versatile material that you can use to create any of the following:
- Retaining walls
- Raised garden beds
- Fire pits
Retaining walls are useful hardscape features that are as functional as they are beautiful. Our experienced masonry workers can install retaining walls on slopes for the purpose of retaining soil at different levels. In Southern Arizona, retaining walls are particularly important given the likelihood of soil erosion due to flash floods during monsoon season. Often, retaining walls are used to separate garden beds and similar landscape features from yards.
Your outdoor space could feature multiple types of walkways. The most important type leads from the driveway to your front door (or from the parking lot to the entrance of a commercial building). Flagstone pavers are a popular choice for front walkways. In the backyard, you could install a walkway leading from your patio or deck to a fire pit or pergola. A walkway through a garden adds both functionality and visual appeal. The experts at Action Yard & Tree Services can build all types of walkways, including those made from flagstone, natural stone, brick, and gravel.
