Testimonials Review Stars The Site Group Landscaping
“The Site Group was great to work with on such a major project. They were so professional and knowledgeable that it made our complicated project feel easy to conquer. The quality of work was beyond our expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again for future outdoor projects. I highly recommend the Site Group!”

“We’ve had the Site Group do two major landscaping projects. Both projects were done on time and with excellent results. In each case, once the project started, work continued steadily until finished — on schedule & on budget. We currently use Site Group’s monthly Site Gardner maintenance service and are also pleased with the results.”

“We have a new large patio and walkway that replaced our old small deck and cement walkway. We used all natural stone. From start to finish The Site Group was professional, efficient and timely in getting the job done. They worked with us on design, best material selection, engineering the landscaping, resolving technical issues and end beautification. Our new patio is additional living space for our family; it is gorgeous! We are now working with the Group on our next phase, the front yard!”

“Dave from the Site Group is fantastic to work with. Dave and I have collaborated on several jobs for my clients and has done work for me personally. The gentlemen/crew on the jobsite are very pleasant to talk to and take the time to answer questions you may have.”

Renee B

“The photos on The Site Group’s profile are fantastic; but as someone who has seen many, many more of their projects over the years, I can say that these pictures are par for the course. The Site Group cares deeply about each of their clients. The designers work hard to provide unique, practical designs, and the installation pros are personable, courteous, and more importantly, expert.”

What is hardscaping?

Hardscaping refers to items used in landscape design such as walkways, retaining walls, patios, water features, lighting, sitting walls, firepit surrounds, outdoor fireplaces, driveways and any other permanent elements.

What is the difference between hardscaping and landscaping?

Hardscaping includes the non-living portions of your landscape. These elements may be built from “hard” materials such as concrete, rocks, stone, wood, bricks or pavers. You may also hear structures such as pergolas, decks, gazebos or fences referred to as hardscaping. By contrast, landscaping elements include the “living things” in your landscape design, such as annuals, perennials, shrubs, grasses and trees. Taken together, these elements should create a beautiful oasis.

What are hardscape materials?

Your landscape designer might choose to use some of these materials in your landscaping:

  • Brick
  • Concrete
  • Pea gravel
  • Stones
  • Tile
  • Pavers
  • Wood (or composite wood)

What is the purpose of hardscaping?

The role of hardscaping is to give structure and support for softscaping (or landscaping) materials like plantlife, mulch and dirt. Hardscaping also creates boundaries and can help protect areas, like plant beds, from erosion and wear.

What are hardscape services?

When you hire a hardscape or landscape company, you can expect them to design and install various features like flat patios using flagstone or pavers, mortared stone structures like walls or fireplace surrounds, garden bed edging or poured concrete elements like driveways or walkways. Hardscape services may also include building structures like pergolas, gazebos or fences.
