Hardscape

What is Hardscape?

The term "hardscaping" is a newer one in the construction and building industry.  It generally means any "hard" site pavements as opposed to "soft" landscaped surfaces.  G4S Construction specializes in the consultation, design and construction of certain hardscape systems: brick, stone and concrete interlocking pavers.  These systems are also known as "segmental pavements".  Note our business is in the industry of "units" (brick, stone, concrete pavers) and not that of anything "poured" (asphalt, concrete).  We also are installers of retaining walls and site masonry.  The majority of our business is in the installation of unit pavements.

Segmental pavements come in a variety of materials and patterns.  For years, brick, stone and concrete pavers have been used in many applications, from airport runways to backyard patios.  Unit pavements are used both for their interlocking and strength capabilities and for their aesthetic nature.

Retaining walls are used to retain the earth's soils in both engineering and decorative applications.  They can be seen "holding up" shopping centers and at private residences where the owner has decided to make the most of his land.

In addition to unit pavers and retaining walls, G4S provides site masonry.  These include masonry walls made of natural stone or brick and block, fire-pits, outdoor kitchens and all types of decorative stone work.

Hardscaping makes your landscape work for you.

The right hardscape elements can improve the appearance, value and function of your landscape. It can turn the natural features of your property into a living space or transform that impossible slope into a terraced showplace. Masseo Landscape can develop your ideas into solid plans or show you possibilities you never imagined.

Hardscaping allows you to mold your site to suit your needs without sacrificing its natural beauty. It can be used to create an interesting landscape on a former pasture, add a pond or expand your outdoor living area. Native or imported stone, modular block retaining walls and interlocking pavers can be used alone or in combination to solve landscaping problems or enhance the look of your site. Whatever materials you choose G4S Construction has the expertise to develop a plan that will fit your needs.

Whether you are looking for a grand path to your front door, intimate woodland seating, or a total site plan, choosing G4S Construction for the design and installation of your hardscaping project ensures that you will have the right elements for your site and that you’ll avoid future problems from improper installation or inappropriate plantings.
