Hardscape Design a.k.a. Masonry
We define hardscapes, or the “backbone” of the landscape, as anything that is not living. For example: retaining walls, driveways, patios, stone outcroppings, paving surfaces, and structures.
By using aesthetic and functional guidelines, these elements define spaces and set the parameters for the plants, mulch, and finishing details that follow. When selecting and laying out the hardscape elements, our designer will take into consideration elements such as: traffic flow, texture, color, form, and more.
The beauty of stone - as well as its strength and permanence - is seen throughout New England, where stone walls have been a staple in our landscape for hundreds of years!
Masonry is used to establish boundaries, create hard surfaces, and build structures that bring the outdoors under cover. We create functional, beautiful, and lasting “hardscapes” using a variety of the best materials.
PATIOS & WALKWAYS. We design and build solid and inviting backyard patios that extend your living space, creating additional areas where you can entertain or simply relax. We make traditional or contemporary patios and walkways from a variety of materials, such as stone, brick, granite, cobblestone, and flagstone.
STONE WALLS & SEATING WALLS offer an ideal means to enclose an area and provide additional seating, making them both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
OUTDOOR FIREPLACES & FIRE PITS. Fire pits and outdoor fireplaces can be a stunning and practical outdoor focal point and we can help you add that touch of warmth to your home, enabling year-round use of outdoor space — even in brisk New England winters!
OUTDOOR KITCHENS. At Trillium, we can design outdoor kitchens that are both functional and fabulous. From classic to contemporary motifs, our innovative designs will support your love of the outdoors and cooking.
