When you want to guarantee impressive results with your hardscape construction, then SML Services is the team for the job. We go to great lengths to ensure all of our work lives up to our high professional standards, so you never have to worry about us cutting corners with your hardscaping.

Intelligent Hardscape Design

Our hardscapes are the product of careful planning and design. When you hire us to build a retaining wall or make any permanent changes to your landscape, we begin by taking all of the relevant details into consideration. We make sure that we measure the load your hardscape will have to support and that it will be able to withstand the elements for many years.

High-Quality Materials

All of our bricks, pavers, and other landscaping rocks are sourced from trusted suppliers. Even our paver bases and sands are carefully considered to provide our customers with unbeatable results. If you want to ensure that your hardscaping doesn’t look cheap or degrade prematurely, then you can’t go wrong with our premium materials.

In addition to our supplies, we also put a strong focus on the tools that we use. In order to provide our clients with hardscape installations that we can be proud of, we make sure that we utilize some of the best tools available. Thanks to our professional equipment, we are able to ensure our hardscapes are level, balanced, and structurally sound. 

Protect and Beautify Your Property with a Hardscape

If your landscape feels like it is missing something, then hardscaping is a great way to add character to your property while also adding other benefits. A retaining wall can help you create a level surface for your lawn while also helping prevent erosion. With a stone walkway or patio, you can break up the monotony of your landscape while also cutting down on foot traffic that can harm your plants.

Increase Your Property Value with Hardscaping

Our services are guaranteed to be a worthwhile investment in your property. Thanks to the quality of our work, there is a high chance that our hardscape construction will make your property more attractive in the real estate market. And because hardscapes tend to last for many years, you never have to worry about diminishing returns on the money you spend. 

Fair Prices from Your Hardscaping Company

Our budget-friendly rates make your hardscaping decisions even easier. We are confident that we can work with your budget and help you get an incredible addition to your landscape. We encourage you to reach out to us for more information on our hardscaping options.

Cut Down on Property Maintenance and Water Use

One of the often-overlooked benefits of hardscaping is that it will reduce the time you spend looking after your landscape. Bricks and stones do not require the regular watering, trimming, and fertilizing that softscapes do, which means your property will always look great with minimal effort. The decreased need for watering also helps you save a significant amount of water every year, which is good for your wallet and the environment.
