The best hardscaping services

Outdoor Living Areas

For those homeowners who want to leave the confines of their walls for extended periods of time, but still need some protection from the elements, outdoor living areas can be a perfect addition to your home. Whether you’re looking to make a space where you can entertain guests, a quiet place to work, or spend with the family, we’ll work with you to make it the space you’re imagining. Fireplaces, seating areas, fans, lighting, kitchen elements, bars, and even TVs are accents that can make your outdoor living area more temperate and more appealing.

Fire Pits

Including a fire pit in your hardscape plans is a simple and elegant way to make your outdoor space a warm, inviting retreat in the cold months. For the creative cook, a fire pit has many more uses than just roasting marshmallows and making kabobs; clam bakes, traditional or ancestral style cooking, and grilling are just some of the applications for cooking with a fire pit.

Outdoor Ovens

For a more modern approach to cooking that still gives you all the fresh air and inspiration of the outdoors, we can install an outdoor oven that can get you out of the hot, confined kitchen. Being able to cook outside gives you the freedom to cook without having to worry about smoke, smells, or stains and allows you to mingle with family or guests instead of being secluded in the kitchen.

Retaining Walls

If your home has a sloped yard that you find unappealing, retaining walls can create an aesthetically pleasing, layered look for your landscape. Retaining walls can be used to make raised garden beds, to section off outdoor living areas, or to simply give your landscape a more complex design. At Custom Retaining Walls and Landscaping we offer retaining walls of a variety of materials and we can work with you to create the retaining wall that will fit your vision for your landscape.


No front door or porch looks complete without steps, but incorporating steps into your landscape can also be a good way to gracefully transition into different sections of the area. A sloped yard can often be difficult to work with and enjoy, but adding steps or a ramp can add accessibility and gives your landscape a more inviting look. If the home you’re in now is the home you want to grow old in, or a home that might house your aging parents, it’s a good idea to invest in an entrance ramp so that you and your family can continue to enjoy your home in the years to come.

Paver Patios and Walkways

If you’re looking for a durable, low maintenance hardscape with a vast array of customizable design options, CRWL can install paver patios and walkways. From modern geometrical patterns to classic cobblestone designs, you can choose the style, color, and texture that suits your vision for your outdoor space. A paver walkway through your garden, landscape, or to your front door can also ensure that it is safe and easily accessible to everyone. CRWL has texturized paver options that can make your home safer and more slip resistant during inclement weather.

Natural Stone

Natural stones are colored and shaped by the elements over the millennia, each beautiful and unique. Stairs, pathways, fireplaces, walls, water features, bar tops, and fire pits made with natural stone can all enhance the scenic appearance of your landscape. Slate, bluestone, boulders, granite, and river rocks are just a few of the options that our team can use to create hardscapes at your home.

Ponds and Water Features

The gentle rustling of a waterfall or the stillness of a pond can transform your backyard into a relaxing escape. Our pond specialist team will help to plan and create your water feature, stock it with water plants of your choosing, and teach you how to maintain it. For those who want to build their own water features, we sell all of the supplies to do so, and our pond specialists can answer any of your questions on how to get started.
