"C. Dod Landscaping is top notch. The owner came out and provided an awesome design and their crew was on top of their game. They were prompt in starting as well as completing our project. They definitely know what they are doing. The complex grades were perfect and on grade, stone work was the best I have ever seen and the planting design/layout far exceeded my expectations..

"JC and Sons were very responsive in meeting my landscaping needs. They placed new flagstone walkways, regraded our side yard and installed drainage system, and laid new sod. They offered a fair price and responded promptly when some things needed to be corrected afterwards. Would use again. "

While you might use the term "landscape" to refer to your entire yard, for the pros, "landscape" refers to the soft or living things in your yard's design such as plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers. The other items such as stone benches, paths, patios, and outdoor fireplaces are called "hardscape".

When considering your front or backyard design, don't limit yourself to the basics like plants and a patio. A local hardscaping company can design and construct the ultimate outdoor living space that includes a variety of hardscape features including:

  • Stone retaining walls
  • Fencing
  • Gravel or stone walkways
  • Patios - not just concrete but tile, flagstone, and brick
  • Arbors and gazebos
  • Steps
  • Decks and pergolas

If you do a lot of entertaining, they can recommend the perfect layout of benches, patios, and paths.
