At Green Leaves Landscape, we can help you conceptualize the design and aesthetics of your hardscaping ideas. Here are a few ideas to help you imagine the backyard of your dreams!

Stairs & Walkways

There are so many different ways to incorporate stairs and walkways into your landscape and hardscape design. Furthermore, you can improve the look and feel of an area by choosing a complementary stone and rock design. There are many options to create a natural stone or a paved look around your home.

Stone Walls

If you’re looking for a retaining or freestanding wall around your home, Green Leaves has your back. Walls are a simple way to elevate your home’s appearance through hardscaping. Equally important, you can use walls to add more finishing touches, such as ambient lighting for safety and style.

Fire Pits

Custom fire pits? Count us in! Stunning features such as BBQ Islands, Outdoor Kitchens, Fire Pits, or an Outdoor Fireplace are a superb way to create a functional outdoor space that also looks great. There are nearly endless options for custom fire pits. For example, you can create deep hearths or elevated rings to enjoy those gorgeous summer evenings.


Patios might be the most popular choice in hardscape design. But, just because they’re a typical home addition doesn’t mean a patio has to be boring or basic. In other words, you can customize and make a patio unique and your own through shape, size, layout, and material choice.
