Green Scene Landscaping & Lawn Care

Hardscaping

Transforming your property into an elegant outdoor living space is possible with landscaping. But you will need more than just flowers, grass, or trees; vegetation in the yard, known as the softscape or soft landscaping, is just half of it. So what's the other half? It's called hardscaping, or hard landscaping.

Hardscaping and Its Practical Function

Besides beautifying outdoors, hardscaping is very important in making the most of the outdoors. Without it, there would be no fences, walkways, driveways, retaining walls, stepping stones, pool decks, frontal decks, water features, or gazebos. These elements should not only be beautiful, but very functional, too.

HardscapingHardscapes, particularly fences, provide safety and privacy. Fences play an important role not only in separating your part of the yard from your neighbors', but also in separating an area—for instance, a grassy playground from a pool.

A retaining wall, another practical hardscaping element, makes unusable and inaccessible slopes more functional. It holds back soil that would rather slope down and mess up the entire landscape creation. With this wall, the former useless soil can be transformed into an elevated plant bed or a special viewing deck.

But viewing decks are only one of the many outdoor living spaces that can be built with hardscaping. Think about gazebos, pergolas, and patios. Outdoor kitchens, dining areas, and living rooms are quickly becoming a trend as well. In this case, hardscaping is not just for safety and division, but also for creating shelter.

The Paver Power in Hardscaping

Hardscaping also creates walkways, pool decks, driveways, ponds and fountains, stepping stones, and more. To make all these possible, a reliable material is necessary. Among the most common are concrete, bricks, stones, and wood. But amidst all these is the paver. The powerful paver is the best material for hardscaping.

HardscapingPavers are basically brick-like materials, only stronger and more sophisticated. They are available in myriads of specific types from natural stones (like flagstones and limestones) to the most common concrete pavers. Whatever your preference, we offer a wide variety of options (see catalogs).

Pavers come in many different colors, including Mega Arbel, Old World, Dublin Cobble, Holland Stone, Anchor Diamond, and more. They also come in different patterns, from the classic brick, to an out-of-this-world design.

Besides utilizing the best materials, we provide the best skills and the most creative minds to build breathtaking landscapes. Green Scene, Inc. has been one of the best in landscape design in Illinois since 1984. Let us show you why — call us today and we'll discuss how hardscaping can transform your outdoors into your dream space.

Patios

No two patio spaces are identical. We pride ourselves in providing design and construction services that are sensitive to your goals. With various shapes, sizes, textures and colors to choose from, it can be overwhelming. That is where our expert knowledge and guidance comes in to give you the best possible options for your investment.

Driveways

All driveways are not built the same. The knowledge, design, and installation process that goes into your investment is what separates us from the rest — our highly skilled and trained installers go above and beyond industry standards to provide you with the “wow” effect.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls can have more than just an aesthetic purpose in the landscape. Much of the time they are designed to restrain soil to an unnatural slope. Whether it be to hold something from destruction, surround your patio, or a decorative part of you landscape, Green scene can construct a wall to your specific needs.
