Manassas Area Hardscaping

Hardscaping is a version of landscaping that uses durable materials instead of plants and trees. It offers a low-maintenance alternative to more labor-intensive practices while also helping to conserve natural resources. When done correctly, hardscapes are attractive additions to home landscaping.

Elmer’s Lawn & Garden has been serving northern Virginia residents with professional and courteous landscaping services for over 25 years. We offer competitive pricing and a superior work ethic that sets us apart from other landscape businesses. We also back our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Let Elmer’s Lawn & Garden help you bring your backyard hardscaping ideas to life.

Retaining Walls

Sloped yards can be challenging to maintain. However, retaining walls installed in just the right spots can create more usable space. So now, instead of a steep, unusable yard, you can have a comfortable outdoor sitting area, a playground for the kids, or even a backyard pool.

Patios & Walkways

Patios are one of the most popular hardscapes for northern Virginia homeowners. They provide a defined area for entertaining, cooking, or relaxing with a good book. Paver walkways leading to a patio and around the yard help further define spaces and create safe travel paths.

Outdoor Fireplaces

Picture your friends and family gathering around an outdoor fireplace as the fall brings a chill to the air. Whether you want to make smores or relax with a glass of wine, an inviting backyard fire pit is a perfect place to do it.

Benefits of Hardscaping

Installing hardscapes is often more costly than other landscaping options. However, the style offers benefits over the competition. Consider these benefits of including hardscaping in your outdoor design:

  • Less maintenance than plants, so you can enjoy your yard with less work
  • Environmentally friendly — no need for fertilizer, herbicides, or watering!
  • Durability and a long lifespan mean you can enjoy your hardscapes for years once they are installed
  • Well-built hardscapes add to a home’s appearance and functionality and may help increase your home’s value
