Stonework & Hardscape Design Process
Whether you’re searching for boulders, natural stone, fire pits and fireplaces, paths and walkways, patios, or walls and terraces, we are here to help. Our process is simple, so you know exactly what is happening at your home without getting bogged down in all the details.
We begin to listen to your goals, inspirations, and ideas, and answer any questions you may have. Together, we’ll explore ways to help you reach your outdoor living dreams, keeping your budget in mind.
Working from your primary viewing perspectives, we preserve major vistas, create new views, and discuss strategies to obscure undesirable elements. For custom landscape hardscape designs, we can provide a 3-D visualization that gives greater clarity to your vision.
After the design is approved, most clients employ our contracting services to help them render their dream into reality. Our team of highly-skilled craftsmen and seasoned masons know how to care for your property and your privacy.
Each project is different, but they all end with the reward of experiencing the joyful stewardship of your little piece of creation. We want you to love coming home, walking in the outdoor space and looking forward to the next season’s unfolding view.
What surprised us most was how much more we love our home since Hanselman Landscape began working here! The porch, patio, pool and garden together create a refreshing new feeling in what used to be a boring, flat backyard. In addition to the beautiful new backyard oasis they created, they are here regularly to care for our plants, turning existing shrubs that we thought were worthless into beautiful, valuable specimens.
Our needs were to have as much privacy as possible from neighboring homes. The landscape, because of the size of the trees, does that now. Everything was done to perfection. This was the first time in a while (even with building a new home) that we gave the job to someone and never, ever had to go over again and again what was to be done. It was a real pleasure to have your services.
Words do not serve well to express the sense of serenity and pleasure which your fine work evokes. On returning home from my difficult duties this week, this special place which you have created for us provided a welcome respite. I would liken the feeling to that of walking alone through a great museum.
I can’t even put into words how much I love my new yard. Hanselman Landscape did an outstanding job–changing an ugly piece of land into a serene and beautiful garden. Everything is just perfect. I most enjoy the woodland theme and the variety of textures and colors in the new plants. The workmanship of Hanselman Landscape’s employees is of the highest quality, and the customer service is courteous and professional.
Hanselman Landscape has helped us re-landscape our property over the past 3 years. James has a way of guiding you through your own garden, taking in the vantage points, and uncovering your vision (even though you didn’t know you had one)!
We liked the way James (Hanselman) explained and introduced the suggested plantings, actually showing us leaf samples. We needed and appreciated his guidance on how we can nurture and maintain the plants in the future. Thanks for adding to our enjoyment of our home with your creative landscaping. We are definitely pleased to have had your expertise.
